Where do people go to listen to good folk music given that Pandora is no longer available in the Antipodes?

Anyone know of any digital radio stations or streaming services, available in New Zealand, where one can listen to a good selection of folk music?

Does New Zealand have limited access to the internet? Seems to me there are folk stations and podcasts galore - you just have to search a bit.

Mike Harding's weekly podcast has listeners down under, he claims. In the US there are streaming folky stations, often with four-letter names, such as WKSU. Some guy called Max has a blues show, or did. Search for 'npr radio; or 'icecast streams'.

Can you get the BBC's iPlayer radio programmes? I'm not sure if they're UK only, now. There are half-a-dozen local ones like Folkscene on Merseyside and Genevieve Tudor on Shropshire.

The question comes from my sister down in NZ.

Ideally she would like a service where you build up your own playlist of artists or a station which was dedicated to folk.

Yes , she is searching on the net but it's always helpful to get recommendations.

That's true of TV, and always has been. But what about radio? Radio streams used to be unrestricted geographically but recently may have changed by requiring you to confirm you have a TV licence.

For example, many of the links on Ange Hardy's excellent site - eg Folkscene on Sundays - should be playable with a browser, at least on a desktop/laptop computer. Latest_Folkscene. Does that work outside the UK?

Mobiles sometimes require use of an app - there's an Android iPlayer Radio app - and these may be more restrictive because they can download as well as stream.

(Techies can use get-iplayer to get round these limitations.)

Reinhard: thanks for confirming that. It's confusing that the BBC brands everything 'iPlayer': people hear that iPlayer is a UK-only service and assume it applies to radio too. It might one day - but not yet.

For those who don't know, almost all BBC radio programs are available for 30 days from last broadcast. On Android the iPlayer Radio app allows you to download programs - and deletes them automatically when they expire - which is good if your internet connection is poor. But I don't know if that app works outside the UK. I'll try it when I'm in Germany next month.

There's so much stuff out there. I was posting on a mobile this morning, but here on my desktop computer I have a load of bookmarks - some of which still work:

(I'm currently listening to Back to Back Irish traditional and folk music from that list.)

one of my friend listens to Folk Alley He even wears their tee-shirt around regional Australia.

FolkAlley.com went online in September 2003, offering live-streaming music over the Internet 24 hours a day. The hosted stream is produced by WKSU-FM in Kent, OH, which also built and maintains the web site. The Folk Alley playlist is created by senior host, Jim Blum, and Folk Alley Music Director Linda Fahey and features a distinctive blend of the best of singer/songwriter, Celtic, acoustic, Americana, traditional, and world sounds.

Not exactly what a traddy English folk-fan in NZ wants, but deserving to on the list of broadcast folk musics.

iPlayer is just a brand and a logo that the BBC seem to attach to anything they make or license that plays their content. So it's on the webpage you linked to (which, for me, does include folkscene).

At the BBC's end is the 'Audio Factory' which sends out live streams, 'listen again' streams and downloads, and podcasts (not the same thing).

You can receive all that over the internet with any program (app, browser, media player, internet radio, diy script) that meets the BBC's spec. I expect you can play it in Windows Media Player if you can find a stream URL - there are several, with different formats and quality.

It's a wonderful system, IMO.

Oh, and they brand TV with 'iPlayer' too.

And for streaming your own choices there is Spotify,
https://support.spotify.com/nz/account_payment_help/subscription_information/

You can search Spotify for folk playlists but what comes up is a bit limited

or look on the internet and find an existing playlist which you like, not so easy.

Can I ask how easy it is to access Irish radio stations where you all are
We have far more (real) traditional music(sit back and listen and serious) here on the media, than anywhere else I've lived and I often wonder if it's worth passing on the information
The same goes for television (RTE and TG4 are full of the stuff)

Access Radio there are podcasts and an Irish prog which plays when you open.

I used to host the Folk programme on Access Radio 1986-1988. In those days they gave the weekend free to anyone who wanted to make programmes, and you had the use of their staff to record (some went out live). It was the Parliamentary channel during the week.

I used to write columns in the Balladeer which was run by the Wellington Folk Club, it seems to have morphed into Acoustic Roots now.

JC " ...I often wonder if it's worth passing on the information "
I'd be interested in a quick look, yes.
But do you have links to
the schedules,
your favourite programmes and
their online radio?

This page has a few dozen Irish stations listed but no programme info. They play but idk what.

Celtic Music Radio: based in Glasgow, but "connecting singers and songwriters in Glasgow and around the world" - online, and definitely NOT just about singers and songwriters! Loads of good music!
BBC Radio Scotland have "Travelling Folk" and "Take the Floor", the latter being more for Scottish dance band music, but they do have some great interviews with non-dance band musicians and play their recordings or even have them playing live in the studio. I know they get people listening in far-flung parts, not just Scotland, and as others have indicated, there are ways around the iPlayer thing!
