I love the radio because of absolute 80s, 70s, 60s

Just works I was put off buy the BBC partnership but it does the job as far as UK stations go. Certainly replaces Tunein and it's social bloat.

Reasonable UK radio app. Works, even Catch-Up (which doesn't work on BBC app), though it doesn't have all the BBC Catch-Up programs. UI very busy & complex, works better in portrait than in landscape - like so many apps, use on tablet seems to be an afterthought. Love the fact that it has no ads. Can't access podcasts, none of the links work.

Crashes a lot but still good Always crashes on startup but once reopened a pretty good alternative to tunein with better quality streams if you're just after uk stations.
