    What I mean is why can't they stream stations live. I don't mean this onDemand junk were you can skip songs. I prefer live streams because there is less repletion. What I am hearing hear from you developers it sounds like a lot of repletion.

    What I mean is I currently subscribe to Slacker Plus and I literally hear the same stupid songs over and over. I can listen on my touch and them on the PC hear the same songs sometimes in the same order. Pandora was also so bad which is why I cancelled. When I listen to live stations on TuneIn I hear less repletion.

    Any Internet radio is almost always at least 30 seconds behind. Online radio just doesn't work that way,

    Live stations would need DJs to run them. In contrast systems like Pandora and iRadio are much more automated.
