So nice to listen to WUWM/NPR in Northwoods

When I’m up north and a radio can’t pick up a single NPR station, I can sit around a fire pit at night and listen to my favorite NPR programs with this app and a weak Internet connection. Whether in Northwoods or Milwaukee, I enjoy reading and listening to the extensive local reporting. The app allows me to catch up on local stories at my leisure. While walking along the lakefront or a county park trail, I can listen to live streaming of All Things Considered. Program interruptions to pitch for donations occur but are not oppressive.

Good sometimes...

I love this app when it works.
That said, every other time I use it I get a “support for streaming brought to you by...” interruption about every 45 seconds. There will be 5 min of suppport messages with 10-15 sec bursts of the actual broadcast interspersed, or sometimes the support messages interrupt other support messages 😓

Random Interruptions

I understand that the station and this app rely on donations but it’s as frustrating as it is redundant to have a news story be completely and randomly interrupted by a 10ish second long advertisement to support the station when we already hear adds to support said station during regular commercial breaks. Very frustrating as often times this leads to crucial details, information or facts being missed from news broadcasts.
