Updated URLs for your internet radio

PilLittleRadio v2 takes shape

I’ve just been doing my annual maintenance on my kitchen radio – it’s an old RaspberryPi with a lovely Pimoroni Displayotron3000, and it runs their lovely radio script. (You configure it by editing the dot3k.cfg file in ~/Pimoroni/displayotron/dot3k/advanced)

I’ve made lots of Raspberry Pi radios, including one you can control from your phone or tablet. Read more about them here: http://www.suppertime.co.uk/blogmywiki/piradio/

I was moved to tinker with it because of recent improvements to the analogue audio output of the standard audio jack – see https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=136445 for more details on that.

I found a few stations (NPR, ResonanceFM and MEATtransmission) have changed their URLs since I last tinkered, so here’s my current list, in case anyone finds it useful for a RaspberryPi radio or other internet radio project.

Though you only really need the first station on this list.
