Radioís Reach Remains Strongóand Leading.
Even as competition keeps growing among an evolving slew of devices, AM/FM
radio reaches over 90% of all Americans, in all age brackets every week,
with an envious accumulation of 222,921,000 listeners. No other
mediumís reach has arms as long as that, according to the new Nielsen Total
Audience Report. - source: "Inside Radio"
a radio industry leader in online radio streaming, shows in their latest
data that internet radio listening is up!
We've noticed, too, on our media encoder server that you're listening to
online more than ever! Thanks for your ear!
TuneIn Radio App (the
industry's most popular online streaming app!) and listen anywhere there's a network connection!
Note: When using TuneIn Radio in the Car
Mode, ask the Voice Search to "Listen to Adult Standards" in order to find
WIOS. There are other references to "WIOS" in the app that don't connect
to our web stream,
and asking for "The Bay's Best" will bring up some other funky music
station. So ask "adult Standards" of the app and it will take you directly to
WIOS 1480 AM!
The Tune-In Radio app is also
available on most Smart HD & UHD 4K TV's. So if your TV is connected
to the internet, you can get WIOS right on your TV set, too!
Wi-Fi Radio Users can now
program their internet radios for WIOS!
(Just in case the Reciva.com database
doesn't populate your Wi-Fi radio set)
(This is a universal mp3 stream)
into the "Tune In URL" setup of
the receiver through your Wi-Fi radio's computer software and then listen to WIOS anywhere
there is a wired or wireless internet connection!*
*Most Wi-Fi radio sets
are portable AND behave like tabletop units as well. They work wherever
there is a public, wireless Wi-Fi connection or can be connected with an
Ethernet cable into a router, switch or hub. You'll receive a static-free,
buzz-free audio signal in total high fidelity on a Wi-Fi radio set, just
like you do on your PC! (A high-speed internet connection is needed to
minimize buffering. A 1Mbps minimum download connection is recommended.
1000 kbps down is
probably the absolute slowest connection to listen to most online radio
The Reciva database has been updated with WIOS, you can populate your Wi-Fi
radio with this address (station number) to include WIOS in your radio
stations list: 50737
For PC and Smart Phone listening we now recommend using
the TuneIn Radio app from the iTunes store or Android

Streaming Technical: The audio stream is broadcast in
monophonically direct from our AM modulation monitor, you are hearing the same signal that
is broadcast over the air (audio processing included). If you have an
exceptionally good AM receiver with full 10kHz IF bandwidth, you will experience
a hi-fidelity frequency response closely approximating that of the streaming
service. WIOS's music is digitally "cleaned" and equalized to provide removal of
most analog noise, clicks and pops along with crisper highs and deeper lows on
older recordings where that range had been previously restricted.
