Posted on: 08/11/2011

TOP TALK, MUSIC RANKINGS SORTABLE BY SUB-CATEGORY AND REGION

DAR.fm, the “DVR for radio” online service launched by noted entrepreneur Michael Robertson, now ranks radio programs based on popularity among DAR.fm users.

NPR programs Fresh Air and All Things Considered hold the top two spots on the talk show list, respectively, followed by Rush Limbaugh and Dennis Miller. The top music show is World Cafe, followed by Morning Becomes Eclectic.

DAR.fm automatically records radio programs online, much like a DVR or TiVo automatically records your favorite TV shows. Users can listen to the recorded shows online or on devices from Roku, Squeezebox, Grace Digital and AR Infinite.
