I use the 'TuneIn' app on my phone, mostly for blues music stations, but does anyone have recommendations for good stations for classical, especially piano (a piano only station would be great!)
I find most classical stations play random snippets, unannounced, so you might discover a new piece, then never find out what it is!

The only station I recognize, and used to use before the advent of internet, is BBC Radio 3, which I occasionally listen to.
But it'd be great to find others.


If the piano is the King of instruments then I am its loyal servant.

Try Australia's "ABC Classic FM " --not all piano but really good programming to my mind.

"Good", meaning "high fidelity"= LINN out of Glasgow.


My take on J. S. Bach, Scarlatti, Shostakovich: https://www.youtube.com/user/dohgrant/playlists

My current thing.... a wee bit of Shostakovich, that underrated Russian composer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C29LqzTOoYM&list=PLP5BZzcdRkq1WU147i5-3K92XlBgTe-kp

My experience, too. Excellent sound. Interesting music, to boot.

I listen to WCPE when I stream on my computer. It is not piano only and (I'm moderately hearing impaired) the host is at a much lower volume than the music, so it is difficult for me to hear the commentary. They do offer a choice of mp3 or Ogg Vorbis streams.
