Halfway up Ireland's east coast, there is a station playing Irish pub music.

THIS! IS! AWESOME!

When I was a kid there a friend of mine had an adult friend (in his 20s) who had a shortwave radio and he showed it to us. I was absolutely blown away listening to music from all over the world. I thought it was the most amazing thing ever. Then decades later as an adult I bought a shortwave radio only to discover the only people broadcasting on shortwave are Christian fundamentalist preaching about how we're living in the end times.

THIS!!!! Is what I imagined shortwave radio to be. Good find Subby!

I've been doing nothing since seeing this link other than tripping around the globe listening to the different music and presentation styles from countries I've only ever heard of in an Animaniac's song and it's so fun. But I swear that Progressive insurance radio commercial plays everywhere in the world.

Oh, good, it dropped me on KCXL in Kansas City (never heard of it, I assume it's AM?), playing some charmingly-racist political program with, I shiat you not, some light getting-listeners-on-the-"right"-track stuff about how sad it was for poor Germany after WWII. Clearly, farking clearly, entry-level "well this doesn't seem so crazy, and this is some interesting new history I'm learning" white nationalist recruitment shiat.

/ That was just part of it.
// Phew boy, wow. Ew. Gonna go find... anything else.

I miss shortwave. I got my first shortwave radio when I was 10 or so, and immediately was hooked. It was how I learned English at a young age and developed an interest in the rest of the world that eventually led to an international career.   

Still have a shortwave radio (digital now, Software Defined Radio, a box you plug in to the PC, attach an antenna, and listen on your PC)  and a decent antenna, but indeed there is not much more on shortwave than Christians and the Chinese, some Maritime weather broadcasts, HAM's and still the occasional spy station broadcasting numbers .  If conditions seem good occassionally I check if I can receive US AM stations here in Europe, that's always interesting.

I have a couple of SDR radios and a dedicated iCom wideband...But this has been fun to listen to FM
from all over..Even some Low Power stations in the US that are town or even neighborhood wide only..

Zurich has a dank radio station playing energy hits! Uncensored, and not the same everyday repeats you hear in the states! Thanks subby, perma-bookmark!

So I guess the software running the site detects when commercials are being played and swaps them out with ads based on your IP, which is why the Tahiti radio station is running ads for Covud vaccinations in my Province. Makes sense and probably keeps the lights on for the website

The individual stream operators may do that, actually. I'd say that's more likely since they (or whatever 3rd-party handles their streaming, same thing effectively) know when commercials are and might auction the slots through some online ad-network for their Internet stream (though either is possible).

/ I may have stumbled on the same Tahitian station last night.
// Lots of pretty-good French hip-hop, at the time,
