Radio Swiss Classic Lifestyle

I have mentioned it before in passing, Vicki and I lead the Radio Swiss Classic lifestyle. Which is to say, we have it on in the car and the house almost all the time. Because Switzerland has four official languages, the service is available in three languages: French, Italian and German (apparently, no Romanch service). Since Vicki is a francophone, we listen to the French service; Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch, but a person back announcing music in German sounds like an excerpt from a Hitler speech,

We prefer our music with minimal chatter and no programs: just music. Most Internet streams of music do not meet these requirements. BBC Radio 3, for example, is wonderful, but programmed like one of those classical stations we used to have in America on FM in the 1960s (without the tasteful commercials, of course) and lots of non-musical programming. The Dutch service, Nederland 3, met this requirement, but the government slashed public radio funding and the service was discontinued.

We have an Internet Radio, but you can also stream it through any PC or telephone (necessary for listening in the car). Heartily recommended.
