love this station... it's been my favorite for many years... best music in Grand Rapids..... I just recently picked up the app... I'm guessing it's really good to have when you're kind of on the go... personally for me the station has been an eye-opener to a lot of the great new music that's coming out... just in the past couple of years I learned about bands that I never knew about and I learned about them by listening to terrestrial radio so it was kind of like wow who was that, so it's great.

I hate the "initial ad" that plays before the stream starts. Why? Every time I get any activity on my phone, such as a call, notification, momentary network interruption, etc, the stream stops, but does not restart again. I have to hit pause, then play. Boom. 30 second ad triggered. I'm missing the show. This only happens about ten times an hour. Lately, it's always Kelly reading a spot for Service Professor, who I now despise. The app ad makes the show unlistenable, pushing away customers.

Keeps cutting in and out of the show. During commercials, 2 or 3 songs get played and even those get cut off. Also repeats when it pauses. Sometimes it stops on it's own and I have to hit play button again. Overall, the app, based on my experience, has seriously declined the past few months
