    I am not familiar with Tunein radio, but if you know the streaming link, paste that link in notepad, save it (as txt file) and modify .txt in .m3u.
    Associate .m3u extension to your favorite player such as the VLC player.

    Piko, thanks for the response. The question was about Tunein radio (a Win 10 app), not streaming links. Actually, I use Winamp and if I could find a link for this particular station I would include it as a bookmark. Tunein radio is fine for listening to radio stations but there is no way to save a location for future quick access.

    I have a couple saved in the "My Profile" section on tunein. Two mouse clicks to launch one. To actually start up in a particular station likely requires the paid for version. I'm using the free version. I don't see any way to do what you want?

    Hi there

    Radio stations usually have (at least the Free ones) an opml url link which you can play directly. The problem is of course finding the actual opml link.
    Google some of the "Radio afficionado" type forums.

    I tend to use on a computer Logitech media server as a music server and run "squeezeplay" which picks up the radio stations from your favourites.
    Other links are a .pls url for 320kb AAC High quality --for example BBC R3 (BBC classical music service @320 kbs)

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3_aaclca.pls

    For tunein this link might help you.
