Check Out All The Ways To Listen!

Updated: Apr 5

The most popular question we receive for both Towpath Radio and River Rat Country is, "What number are you on?" This refers to our spot on the FM dial. What makes Towpath Radio and River Rat Country different is the freedom we have without being on the FM dial. We don't have to deal with the FCC or the extreme costs of building and powering an FM or AM tower. If we pull the winning Power Ball numbers then we might make that move but until then you can find us with any internet connection, whether it's your phone's data, Wi-Fi, or a PC plugged straight into the wall.


The amazing thing about today's technology is internet radio is just as, if not more, accessible than FM or AM. Think about it, how many of us walk around with a portable radio compared to a phone capable of pulling in any station in the world?


We recently made some changes with both Towpath Radio and River Rat Country, so we thought we'd give you an official rundown of how to listen.


Here's how to listen to Towpath Radio:
