Wake Forest, NC (Vocus/PRWEB ) May 7, 2009 — Webmaster Eric Maynard of WCPE, TheClassicalStation.org, announces the availability of “Great Classical Music, 24 Hours A Day” on 3G mobile devices. Also, WiFi devices such as night stand internet radios can access our signal from a home wireless network.

American Public Media has provided the Public Radio Tuner™ app for the Apple iPhone™ and iPodTouch™ 3G devices. Americanpublicmedia.publicradio.org is the address for instructions on downloading and installing this free application. Other 3G devices that have an MP3 player installed can listen by going directly to our address theclassicalstation.org/listen.shtml and choosing the MP3 stream.

“Gurus predicted handheld devices would start taking over the popular imagination,” says Maynard. “And that day has come.” He adds, “WCPE wants to make Great Classical Music a big part of this new idiom.”

“Thanks to Paul Jones, Don Sizemore and the entire staff at iBiblio,” continues Webmaster Maynard. “Their hard work helps increase our listenership on the Web and 3G.” Furthermore, “Soon, the 4G standard will reach even the most remote rural locations!”

Homes with a wireless network can use internet radios which can access thousands of streaming radio stations without having a computer on. The output can then be rebroadcast by micro power FM transmitters to all the radios in your house. Soon there will be WiFi and 3G car radios so you can get “Great Classical Music, 24 Hours A Day” on the highways.

These WiFi devices get their information from databases of radio stations.
