As Scot mentioned below, you can try searching by city/region or station name. If you can't find a particular local station try going to vtuner directory via your phone. Once you search and find the station, XiiaLive will be set as an option to open the stream. Once you are playing it simply save it as a favorite so that you don't have to find it again.

I don't know the source of the XL playlist, but it seems to not include geographical location. So a city would have to be mentioned in the station name. Remember names of nearby cities. Try city/region nicknames. Try searching for specific local stations -- call letters, slogan, last year's slogan.


And while you're doing web searches for local stations, also see if the radio station web site offers a streaming link. You can add that URL to your app's directory. I don't know how... I saw it mentioned somewhere, and I haven't noticed an organized user manual to tell us these things.

Thanks! Yes, we need a good user manual!
