TuneIn Radio App – Streaming the Ticket


iPhone View

Recent stream url has changed again. To get your custom URL working again, update the url with the one provided below. Be sure to use EXACT capitalization as you see below.

@P1BradC also said you can add a custom url in Tunein, since the Ticket is removed and save that custom url as your new ticket station. Big thanks for the tips to @P1BradC!


If the one above will not work, might try this one:


There still hasn’t been any sort of fix with tunein for you guys, sorry, but P1 Gary sent this in so maybe it’ll help some of you to at least listen:
Not sure if this is more work than most people want to do but I have the Droid Bionic with Verizon.

First you will need to download the VLC media player. I don't think its in Google Play yet but you can get it here:


(note: this is still in beta so YMMV)

Once this is downloaded and installed open VLC and locate the button near the top right that looks like an arrow pointing to a dot.

Click on that button.

That should do it.

If you are having trouble getting a good stream of the Ticket on your iPhone you can use this super simple app, now on sale for just 99 cents. You will be streaming the little Ticket in no time.

Get it in iTunes

Get in Android Marketplace (Thanks @guapozx, @sjurrens)

Other Notable Apps

One of the pricier apps is Wunder Radio at $6.99.

Then you can go at it for free with FStream.

Another one some people have suggested is ooTunes Radio but it clocks in at $4.99.

    It’s great because you can pause the stream for up to 30 mins and you can rewind and record like a DVR box. Makes for great call backs when something wheels off happens.

    This is the best app for radio. It’s like TiVo for your iPhong.

    I have mine set to start recording at 5 til 6, I start listening when I wake up around 6:30. Then an hour later when I get to work, I stream on my computer using quicktime.

    I used to use Fstream, then moved onto FlyCast. FlyCast is still great if you just started listening and missed the last segment or two, you can actually go back and stream it from their servers. But it’s not always a sure bet it will work. And can be a little glitchy at times. In fact, that’s what I like about TuneIn Radio the most, the scrubber is very responsive and rarely crashes.

    The only issue for some is so far you cannot export recordings. Because I think they are not stored on your phone. If they are they’re encrypted, because I have never been able to find them through SSH.

    Better than wunderradio because it is cheaper by $5 and let’s you record.

    I also really love this app.

    If you are in a pinch, you can export the audio in real-time by playing it back out of the iPhone’s headphone jack to another recording device or a computer. Still, I agree… there should be an easier way to transfer clips.

    I have iPad money, and this is the best app on the device. I wish it worked better for multi-hour recordings. Sometimes I will record The Ticket all day and it does get difficult to scrub such a long timeline. Still, a great app!

    Dude!!! Thanks for posting this info. I didn’t want to shell out the $$$ for wunder radio. Now I can listen to 1310 am when I’m at work and away from my PC. COOL!!

      TuneIn Radio is the shit. I use it all the time. I usually am leaving for work around 8:40 so I’ll start my TuneIn before it starts and get my shit to leave and once I’m in my car to leave, I play the 8:40 bit on my phone that’s paused. #DUH #WINNING

    I have had this app since the start of football season. I got it so I could listen to local radio for my Buccaneers and Gators but I find I use it more for recording The Ticket when I am not in the car. I have tried a lot of apps and this is the best!

    Is anyone else having problems streaming from TuneIn Radio the last couple of weeks? I can get other stations but The Ticket wont stream (unless im on wifi). It might be carrier specefic because a coworker is able to get it on his Android phone w/ ATT service. I am on an Evo (Sprint). Doesnt matter if I am in 3g or a 4g area either.

    Agreed Trevor. This has sucked. It’s been a LONG time with it down. We’re on ATT Androids as well (my boyfriend and I) and both of our phones won’t stream it. This is true for Tunein and for Wunderradio.

    Yeah. Been having the same problem for a few weeks now too. The stream plays fine when I am connected to wifi, but when I’m on the cellular network it won’t work at all. Very annoying, don’t know if this is a cumulus thing or what, but the tunein app will play other stations just fine over 3G.

    I am on AT&T and have an iPhone and am praying this problem gets fixed soon.

    Got word back from Rich Phillips:

    “This is related to our company’s move to an exclusive streaming deal with iHeartradio. It’s a free app that at the moment has only select stations, but soon will have all the Cumulus stations on it. Because of this, many 3rd party apps like Wunderradio and Tunein have been dropping our stations. It seems to be an Android issue as far as I can tell. I still can listen on Wunderradio via my iPhone.

    The latest information we were given late last week was 30-to-45 days before all the company’s stations were available on it. I wish I had a better and more immediate solution for you. Hang in there with us.”

    Thanks for the info Megan. They should post up the transition on the main site as im sure theres tons of people that use their phones to listen. My reason is I cant get radio reception where I work and “big brother” blocked all streaming radio stations about a year ago, so phone streaming is my only option. Its good to know it will eventually be back though.

    Hello – has anyone figured out what the new stream url is for the ticket stream? I realize they are moving to i heart radio, but I am an avid recorder of the ticket and have been recording shows much like you guys do online. however, the stream url listed on the website (pubpont.asx) is no longer valid. and I need to set up the new stream so I can record the shows daily. any help would be much appreciated.

    They’ve broken the streams for third party players as well. I have an internet radio from aluratek that can’t find the source any longer. The over the air reception is so bad in my area (and most) that the internet streaming is at least a good in quality if not better. Hey KTCK, why not stream the HD stereo channel please, and get it back up soon, thanks!

      Well it looks like Cumulus has finally done it! TuneIn actually worked and allowed us to listen all day without interruption, and even record. Now they force us to use iFartradio which is super gay. It is glitchy, and doesnt record, or even work very well. Streaming the Ticket is my main reason for owning this phong. Cumulus is the worst thing to happen to DFW radio since the loss of John Labella!!

      I just cant understand why a company that needs listeners to succeed, doesnt want us to listen. Look at what the PD’s have done to WBAP and KLIF too.

      No funeral… BANG!

    Like they said earlier, go to the custom URL add page on the IPhone, and type in this code:


    It is clunky getting it typed in and selecting the right choice, but it does work.

    Thanks!!!! This is great! Plus something I found during this dark week of the switch to ipoopooRadio, is DAR.FM. You can set up recordings and it does it without needing to use cellular data, or drain your battery. There is a little bit of a delay, (about 15-30 mins after a segment is done) but you can set it up where it downloads automatically as an iTunes podcast. Or just as mp3’s.

    Here’s the link: http://goo.gl/J1nH8

    Guys – this is GREAT news! For the last week or so I’ve been lamenting my loss of ability to “DVR” the little ticket.

    iHR can suck it (as can those stupid, STUPID ads they play ad nauseum.) Seriously – Clear Channel’s mobile application devs and project managers should be drawn and quartered for failing to deliver a product that at least BEGINS to compete with TuneIn before delisting channels in the competition.

    I found that pasting the URL into safari on iPhong plays
    the stream as well.
    Assuming that this method will work with most other
    browser + wireless device combos.
    Perhaps a good option for thrifty folks like me.
