As Texas RV owners, we tend to spend a lot of time on the road. Over the years, people have come up with ways to keep themselves entertained including playing games like I Spy or License Plates. I personally enjoy listening to music as I travel along those Texas highways, though. But sometimes it can be hard to find a good radio station. Even if you do find a station you like, you’ll only be able to listen to for a certain amount of time before you’re out of its frequency.
This is where our iPods and CD players come into play. If you spend a lot of time on the road though, your selection may start to sound old. Especially if you haven’t been able to purchase or download any new music lately.
Thanks to technology, though, we now have more options… quite a few in fact. These are the three I enjoy the most. Once that happens, you may turn to your CDs or a playlist on your iPod. But even that can get old after a while… especially if you haven’t had any time to add new music lately. Luckily in this day and age of technology, we have quite a few alternative options.
I Heart Radio.
This is another smartphone app that you can use to listen to your favorite radio station from back home. The downside? You’re favorite radio station may not be an “I Heart Radio” station.
This is hands down my number one pick. With more than 140 commercial-free music, news, sports, traffic and weather, talk radio and entertainment, and comedy channels, you’re bound to find something you like. It’s also great because it works anywhere! The only downside is that it costs between $12-20 per month
Pandora Internet Radio.
If you have a smartphone capable of downloading apps, then Pandora is a must-have. This free app allows you to create your own radio stations from a song, genre or artist. The more you use it, the more it will conform to the exact type of you music you like. The only downside is that you’ll occasionally hear a commercial or two.
So Texas RV travelers, say goodbye to the days of scanning for radio stations and try out one of these other options!
