Hi, please consider adding Radio Paradise to the built-in radio stations, they have some fine sounding FLAC streams with several mixes to choose from. Im sure this would be a welcome and popular addition.

FLAC Links

Main Mix FLAC (http://stream.radioparadise.com/flac)
Mellow Mix FLAC (http://stream.radioparadise.com/mellow-flac)
Rock Mix FLAC (http://stream.radioparadise.com/rock-flac)
Eclectic Mix FLAC (http://stream.radioparadise.com/eclectic-flac) 
Is there any metadata (Album, Artist, Track, etc) in the streams?
The expansion of Radio Paradise adding Mellow, Rock and Eclectic mixes is a great move, even more of what you like!
Unfortunately the flac streams do not contain metadata, but the 320k AAC streams do, see here:
Radio Paradise streaming options

Thanks for all the great work Tim.

Happy Listening
Ian
Does lack of metadata necessarily eliminate them from consideration for being included in the radio stations page?
Nope but there are zillions of radio streams and I'd prefer to only add those that include rich metadata.

The better question is to Radio Paradise forum and why they don't include metadata in their FLAC streams.

From the Radio Paradise link above, concerning the FLAC streams

Quote:These links currently do not currently include stream metadata (song title info). Not our choice. We would if we could.
The likely reason is that they have to pay the companies that provide the metadata an annual license fee.

Edit to add: They also may be prohibited by the companies that provide the data from including metadata in lossless streams.

Just ask them on their Forum specifically why no metadata.
I thought I read that FLAC streaming doesnt support metadata.
Amazon streams their entire trillion track catalog in lossless FLAC with rich metadata.
I listen mostly to RP, Intense Radio, JB Radio-2 and Frequence3 FLAC streams, none of them have metadata.

Are Amazon doing live radio streaming in a standard container that will play on any player for example moode?
