An internet internet radio

When I was younger I spent many many hours listening to the BBC World service and Absolute radio. The problem was that it was very difficult to tune in stations due to the distance. 

Now almost all the content is broadcast on the internet which makes it easier to listen to stations from all over the world. 

Using a regular receiver is becoming very impractical, so I got an internet radio that uses wifi to connect to the world. It is absolutely fantastic. My life has changed a little bit to the better.

I bought it through the internet, that is why I call it an internet internet radio. 

UPDATE (11-01-21): I still think the radio set is fantastic but every one or two weeks it fails to connect to the wifi, So I have to turn it off and on and everything works just fine again. I know that turning it off and on is a fairly poor debugging strategy but it just works.
