ANONRADIO (formerly SDF Radio) is a streaming "internet radio station".
To see the program schedule, visit http://anonradio.net
The easiest way to start listening is to visit http://anonradio.net/listen in your web browser, and launch the web player.
Alternatively, you can use your favorite media player to open the live stream at
Don't know how to do that? Fear not! Below are instructions for how to do that with some popular media players.
To get around occasional drops in the stream which may occur when DJs/programs are changing, select Playback -> Repeat One.
Using the GUI:
Using the ncurses interface ("nvlc"):
Or, if you start VLC from the command line, you can specify the stream to open:
$ vlc "http://anonradio.net:8000/anonradio"
At your shell, type:
$ mplayer http://anonradio.net:8000/anonradio
This one's a little different — wait, no it's not. At your shell, type:
$ mpv "http://anonradio.net:8000/anonradio"
ncmpcpp, press 2 to access playlists
http://anonradio.net:8000/anonradioand press enter.

To make it more useful for ANONRADIO use, it's helpful to put it into a shell script like so:
#!/bin/sh # anonradio - streams SDF ANONradio via sox(1); # retries automatically if stream dropped if [ -x $(which sox) ]; then trap 'printf "\n anonradio stream terminated... \n" && exit 0' 2 while [ 1 ] do clear printf "\nSDF ANONradio - http://anonradio.net - ^C to cancel\n" sox -V0 -t mp3 http://anonradio.net:8000/anonradio.m3u -d sleep 10 done else echo 'sox(1) not found or not executable - exiting...' exit 1 fi exit 0
The above script will automatically reconnect to the anonradio stream if it gets dropped due to
a DJ change or network abberation. Stream is terminated using the CNTL+C keys. See
sox(1) manpage for the full list of options.
To become a DJ, first you must subscribe to the anonradio-l mailing list by sending an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org that says:
Then, send a message to the list and introduce yourself. Tell us about the show you want to do, and request a time-slot — for the current schedule, just visit anonradio.net. When you are ready to stream and your show has been scheduled, you will be given a username, password, mountpoint and server name to stream your show to. Scheduled shows are automatically switched-in by the server.
