With Gradio, we will be able to turn our linux into a full-time station. We can easily access all the content of community radio and listen to it without interruptions in streaming.

Today we are going to present you something different, it is Gradio, a program that allows access to a directory of radios and listen to our favorite stations from our linux, without depending on any internet browser.

Gradio is free software and is ready to work in GTK, being a lighter application that works better than streaming from the internet browser.

With this software, we will be able to easily access the community radio directory, a directory that today has more than 4600 stations, which are added by users. If you want to access the list of community radios, see what there are and even add one, click on this link to be able to do it.

What is special about Gradio is your customization, since with this software we can create personalized libraries with our favorite stations, see the internet connection that we have at the moment and see those stations easily, with just a small glance.

Gradio works very well, consuming few resources and allowing you to listen to the radio without being distracted by anyone. The only bad thing is that it is a software that only limits itself to that, to listening to the radio, since they have not added other functionalities such as downloading songs from a station.

This software It is not included in the default repositories of your favorite distribution. However, thanks to the command console we can easily add the repository to our system and install the software. We will be able to use the example of the commands to follow with the apt package manager (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint ...).


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:haecker-felix/gradio-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gradio

With the first command we add the repository, with the second command we have everything updated so that it can be easily downloaded and with the last one we download and install the software.
