    AM/FM Radio

    Does anyone listen to traditional radio any more? Sometimes I would just like a plain and simple AM/FM radio to listen to while riding. Is there a Bluetooth one available or one that would plug into my N-Com?

    Sangean makes some great little pocket radios, no BT though. I like this one: http://www.sangean.com/products/prod...p?mid=50&cid=6

    I listen to FM via my Schuberth SRC. Crummy reception, but for news or talk radio it's good enough.

    Smartphone

    I have an iPhone and use Sticher to stream real time FM to my Bluetooth Sena, works like a charm.

    Most of the portable radios lack medium wave (AM). Those portable music players that have FM don't have AM. I don't know if there are AM apps, because it's AM I want to hear.

    I got the Iheart IPhone app and have been playing around with it. So far I'm very impressed. The stations that I like to listen to (both AM and FM) work great. I will continue experimenting when I am on the move in different localities. Thanks for all the suggestions.
