Further to @bruss’s recommendation, I’ve been listening to 181.fm True Blues for the last couple of hours. I only went to it to see what it was like, but it’s surprisingly good. Good sound too and it’s only 128kbps.
I wish this had been around when I was a teenager learning to play guitar.
I wish I’d learnt to play the guitar that I made as a project at school. An Old drawing board ( who remembers them?) as the sound board, everything else out of pukka materials, steam bent as appropriate etc. I learned the chords for House of the rising sun, and that was about it.
As a teenager I took classical lessons, which at least taught me to read music and develop a good right hand technique. I guess if I’d had access to an all blues radio station then, I’d have found my way to the crossroads somewhat sooner.
The Jazz24 aac/256 stream seems to be down at the moment.
It is probably a temporary glitch (as it is normally a reliable station).
The mp3/128 stream is OK.
The aac/256 is obviously the better SQ. So maybe best to wait.
This one is a somewhat bigger than just Jazz24. Due to a domain name change about 1000 USA centric radio streams no longer work.
VTuner have been informed.
I noticed the domain change on Jazz24 but strangely the new aac/256 link did not work but the mp3/128 did. Update - the aac stream is now working but not sure if vTuner is sorted.

FYI. Some users have reported problems with BBC stations on Naim equipment. In short the problem relates to users who have the stations as pre-sets which now need to be regenerated.
There is a thread on which @Stevesky indicates the solution.
see BBC Radio down? - Streaming Audio - Naim Audio - Community
Unfortunately other users have reported the same problem many times without checking the forum.
Resulting in duplicate posts about a problem for which there is already a solution.
@DiggyGun Airable informed in case you are missing your fix. - Update Airable is OK now.
Thanks for the update. Basically, had to re-set everything, but now up and running and enjoying the Jazz again.
As Stevesky indicated Jazz24 (and many other stations) changed their domain but for some reason the new aac/256 stream was not working initially although the mp3/128 was.
I have been listening to ALR Jazz, Relaxing Jazz and SatinJazz which are nice alternatives and all on Airable.
The Penthouse Radio seems like a nice station.
Try offrario, too. I understand nothing Greece, which is actually good for any works. They, somehow play music which do not make me nervous, or how to say. Even at home off radio plays whole day as a ambient listening. But sometimes Friday night, off radio can make thicker show! I like it.
FIP, Radio France app for iPad (or Android).
All the usual music genres plus cultural, history, live concerts (which can be paused), podcasts, movie soundtracks. No useless chitchat in any of the music genre channels.
The channel/s are funded by the French government so quality is high.

I’ve not listened to RP or Pinguin Radio since installing this on the iPad many a month ago.
I’m quite liking Radio Meuh at the moment. French channel.
I have listened to this quite a lot lately:
METHOD: Provide a passive listening experience that is enjoyable to existing Prog fans, while helping those new to Prog discover music and artists.
SLOGAN: “Honoring the Past. Spotlighting the Present. Inspiring the Future.”
Hi I’m a newcomer in this blog.
Many thanks for sharing your experience. Being fond of Jazz myself, these are the radio stations I listen to very regularly : SuperStereo7, Mother Earth Jazz (both in 24 bits), Jazz24, FIP Jazz and Czech Radio CRo jazz. All of them eclectic and without adverts
Hi Naim community members, I’d like to raise the issue of the German radio station Mother Earth Jazz which doesn’t appear in the list proposed by Naim while the three others of the brand Mother Earth are in it (Mother Earth klassik, Mother Earth radio, Mother Earth Instrumental). After I sent Naim the data of this station, I could get it personally and it appears now in my added stations but without the picture. The sound quality is very high : FLAC 192 kHz 24 bits and the programming is very eclectic. I sent VTuner a request so they add this radio station in their list but up to now I still didn’t see it. In my opinion it’s a pity that such a high quality HiRes radio station doesn’t appear in the VTuner and Naim preregistered lists.
