Screamer Radio provides you with a way to stream local and international radio stations right to your Windows PC. There is little reason to listen to commercial FM radio anymore; it is an old medium that provides almost no choice of music and is saturated with ads. For the last couple of years, there has been an alternative, streaming internet radio. An alternative that has been somewhat complicated to use. Screamer Radio attempts to remedy this problem by bringing most of the required steps into a single, easy to use, freeware program. It is portable too!
