Radio Garden - An Interactive Map of Radio Stations Around the World

Radio Garden is an interactive map that showcases radio stations around the world. Go to Radio Garden and the site will try to locate the radio station nearest to your current location. Then you can click around the map to find and listen to the live streams of other radio stations around the world. Through the interactive Radio Garden map you will find a mix of commercial FM radio stations playing music, AM radio stations hosting news talk shows, and some public broadcasting stations like one near me that simply relays police and fire service calls.

Applications for Education
Radio Garden could be a good resource for world language teachers who are looking for ways to give their students some different ways to hear the languages they're studying. For example, in the screenshot above I located some radio stations in Montreal. The live feeds from those stations provide students with the chance to practice listening to conversations in French.
