Why can’t I see what program is playing now?

I see Take Away starts at 11 am. It’s 11:04 and I’m listening to news. Is there some disconnect between what’s playing now (and please tell me what’s playing now) and the stated play schedule? I’m clearing missing something.

Smooth & Fast

For quick live listening this app is the best! I love that my station is just two taps away! One to open the app one to press play! I have not had the issue others had with the audio stopping. This app is a great escape from the tap trap other apps will get you sucked into.

APP is Dysfunctional

I should have read the signs before downloading this app. A few reviews stated the same or similar issues of dysfunction. They were also posted reviews from at least 1 or 2 years ago, too.

The issue for me is having news feeds appear, disappear, then reappear, just to disappear again, just to reappear, and on and on. I am deleting this app. WHYY is a great station, with excellent staff. It is perplexing to experience their app being antithetical to their actual local station.
