ESPN’s stream reportedly reaches more than 420,000 unique listeners per month and generates 1.9 million total sessions per month. That makes the stream the most popular talk format station, among both terrestrial and online-only streams. For more, check out RBR’s coverage here.

TIME: “RADIO-KILLERSPANDORA AND LAST.FM ARE AMONG TOP 50 SITES OF 2009

Among Time‘s 50 Best Websites of 2009 are Pandora and Last.fm. The “near twin radio-killer applications” made the list because they’re “both an amazing way to discover new favorites and a set-and-forget way to get a soundtrack that fits your current state of mind.” Alongside the service on the list is Spotify, which Time says could be “the holy grail of online music.” Metacritic, Musicovery, Twitter, Hulu, Wolfram|Alpha and Google were among Time‘s other picks. Find the full list, and Time‘s thoughts on each site, here.

RHAPSODY TO SUBMIT iPHONE APP; WILL APPLE ACCEPT?

For $14.99 a month, users could stream any song in the Rhapsody catalog on-demand via Wi-Fi or cellular connection. According to a video demoing the application released by RealNetworks, the app also includes Rhapsody streaming radio.

DAB RADIO OFFERS SLICK RETRO DESIGN

After the super-modern, touch screen multi-function radio we previewed in RAIN yesterday (here), I had a hankering for something a bit more “classic.” John Lewis’ DAB Radio satisfied that craving. While it sadly has no Internet radio capabilities, and looks to only be available in the UK (here), the retro design is so eye-catching I had to find some way to get its pic into RAIN. Now, I only have to find a way to jam a Wi-Fi receiver in there… — MS
