Apps put a radio in your pocket - Business - The Boston Globe

Back to the future
"With Internet audio apps such as Pandora and Spotify, any smartphone can pull in ­music, news, and sports from around the world. But sometimes you want something close to home — your favorite hometown sports talk show, or local news and weather updates. Luckily, there are plenty of audio apps that tune into traditional radio­ broadcasts, offering features you won’t find on that bedside clock radio.
Three of the best, Stitcher, iHeartRadio , and TuneIn Radio Pro, deliver an appealing mix of traditional radio and Internet podcasts.
A fourth, DAR.fm, is a curious but clever service that serves as a kind of DVR for your favorite radio programs."
