+1 FD on the tricks being too much trouble; the [NOLA] radio station internet streams for me aren't compelling enough to justify fiddling [totally distracting whilst driving BTW] - however, my NOLA native wifey is MOST APPRECIATIVE of your thread that brought out the iPhone-iDrive "trick" to allow her to constantly stay in touch with her roots, from 1800 miles west.
