So....I am a member now, after freeloading for a few months. Glad I joined. Oh there's alternatives on the internet, as well as broadcast stations (we shall leave broadcasts out of the conversation; so many limitations). There's one really popular one that uses algorithms to predict what they think I like. Well not exactly, it has its shortcomings. Then there is another that uses hundreds, if not thousands, of 'DJ's' creating their own stations. Good, but still has its shortcomings. Calmradio has exactly what I'm looking for. Not just classical, but baroque, chamber music, concertos, etc. And composers. Not just the popular and well known ones but others such as Corelli, Telemann, etc. Wonderful. And the Relaxation channel, beautiful. Do not change the Spaced, it is great as it is; love it. Getting used to the mixer and additions, so no comment yet, but I certainly do not anticpate any problems. Calmradio has really nailed it. Found you on iTunes, by the way
The only regret I have is that I will not hear the woman who does the advertising spots. I know, strange. I harbor an abhorrence for annoying advertising, yet her voice is so pleasant and calm, I never minded listening to her. Nay, even looked forward to it. I did, truly! I suppose I can always listen for a little while, without logging in, just to hear her. I miss her already....sigh.
Keep doing what you are doing, you really have something great here; unique, special. Audible calculus for the brain.
Wishing everyone there a great new year and many more to follow. Most sincerely and appreciatively,
B A McCarthy, Port St Lucie, FL
Dear Laura & Eric,
No one could be more surprised than I, that "we" got this all to work. You can't imagine, however, how much we are enjoying the stations. Calm Radio is awesome! In addition to the usual staples of my musical diet, pleasant discoverings for us include "Harry & Friends" and "Elite Artists." I am nearly 70 and no computer whiz, to put it kindly. If you can get someone like me connected, there's has to be hope for nearly everyone. Thank you for your patience. Music is a GREAT - one of the greatest there is - transforming and transporting. Thank you for your patience. David & Barbara
I just wanted to let you know how much CalmRadio.com has helped me. I am a 65 year old who had to retire at 59 due to severe medical issues that included multiple strokes and complex regional pain syndrome. I use your relaxation channels several hours each day. With their help I have improved my meditation skills and now when a bout of severe pain or anxiety happens all I need to do is lay down in my darkened bedroom and listen to one of the relaxation channels and within 30-45 minutes the episode is over with. I have been able to completely come off of all the pain medication that I had been on for years (very heavy doses of opioid prescriptions as a result of your wonderful service. I go to sleep every night listening to one of your channels and always wake up refreshed and ready for my limited daily activities. Your service has performed miracles for me and I am forever grateful.

I am an 56-aged orthopaedic trauma chief surgeon, 31st year in duty, stress you cannot imagine. When I have 2 hours to relax to reload my mental batteries, your music helps me very much. Many patients (not only with tinnitus) with post traumatic stress disorder would benefit very much of your service. Your music is able to diminish pain due to mental relaxation and can help to a positive mental balance.
Therefore my recommendation: Calmradio to every trauma patient's bed and after trauma at home!
Greetings from Austria, Peter Wiesinger, Orthopaedic trauma chief surgeon, LK Krems, Austria.
I just want to add my voice to those reviewers who have voiced their appreciation for your station. After having found CalmRadio within the Tunein Radio selection on my iPhone and enjoying it for many weeks I thought I would check out your membership details online. Needless to say perhaps, but your pricing is great.
As someone who gave up television years ago and has paid for too many online music services and only been disappointed, CalmRadio stands out from the crowd as far as I am concerned. Finally, a station that knows what it is, who it's target audience is, and does a superb job of providing exactly the type of music I can listen to all day long.
I have enjoyed every single selection I have listened to and not once have I changed the selection for not liking what was playing. It's as if I am your program director and get to select what gets played. It's uncanny. I am very happy with my purchase and I will be recommending your service to any friends or family that appreciate calm music.
Sincerely, David Carlyle
You've got a great product here. I've gone through plenty of free relaxation music content that's readily available and none of it seemed to be consistent, so I looked into paid alternatives when I heard the commercial on the free version of your sleep stream on Shoutcast. I've found your selection of channels to be some of the best among most internet radio out there as far as relaxation music goes. It's the least repetitive and has best selection of music across all of the the channels, and all of it is really calming for home or work. The atmospheres are really something unique that sets you apart, along with the mixing app. Chances are I'll spring for the lifetime membership since this is something I can see getting daily use out of. I wish you all the best of luck with your business- this is definitely an idea whose time has come. Daren C.
buying my lifetime listening deal was one of the best decisions of my life. I really love your service. M Blubaugh - CA USA
Hi guys, just a message to say thanks for a great site. I am on my computer at home for between six and eight hours a day and your music has made a tremendous difference to my day.
Congratulations on your 100th channel! I'm not hinting or anything but I'm really looking forward to 'Classical Clarinet', 'Classical Oboe' and 'Classical Horn'. May you go from strength to strength.
Warm regards, David Jenkinson
Calm Radio helps drown out the trains that go by with loads of coal bound for and from China and Russia. We're in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia and it's a place that cries out for calm. Best wishes for a happy and bright Christmas season. K Van Der Stoep
This collection of music and your service is one of the best 'things' that ever happened in my life. 40 years of practicing medicine has left its imprint on my psyche...'wound up like a $2 watch' might be an apt descriptor. You help that. Thank you. M Daly
We really appreciate your words of thanks. We really do. We really try hard to bring joy into your life and we do love it when you send us a little joy back! :)
You amaze me! You keep finding ways to improve. I love the new channel menu as well as the many new channels. Eric Harry & Calm Radio you just keep getting better! I think this is the first time I've ever written two letters of appreciation to a company. I can't help it. You keep getting better. You are the most welcome part of my work day. Thanks! Maggie A.
I am just writing to say your selection of music is outstanding. I hear so many compliments from my massage clients about the music on the 'Spa' and 'Solo Guitar' stations. Thanks for the great work you're doing with music. Robyn S.
I have a dog who suffers from major anxiety whenever my roommates watch and react to sports (basketball, car races, football) on the television. So I put on your iTunes station and now she just relaxes and peacefully sleeps. I feared that she'd get upset during the commercials on iTunes so I just purchased a year long commercial free membership. Thanks for helping my beloved pooch find calm.
I have been listening to Calmradio opera and think it is wonderful. I also listen to Calmradio Chorus. Your stations are some of the best I have heard. I am situated in Australia and find your reception magnificent via my apple computer and broadband wireless modem. Best Wishes from Hobart, Tasmania Australia
I listen to your station every day while I work, and in the evening when I read. Your music is the perfect accompaniment to thoughtful, peaceful and creative living. Positivity always gives me an inspirational boost. I ordered a one year subscription to give to my Yoga Instructor as a holiday present; she loves it. Thanks for enriching our lives with the sound of beautiful, commercial free music. Bill in Dallas
I've been a VIP member for several months now, and I have to tell you that your CALM RADIO is fabulous. This is not a light statement: I am a classically trained musician who was married to an opera professor for many years and lived in academia forever. I currently have only two listening habits, and CALM RADIO is the primary one. POSITIVITY is my runaway favorite. THANK YOU, and MANY BLESSINGS! Natalie H California
I want to say thank you for CALM RADIO. I work in Mental Health, and survived a Brain Tumor with 9 hours of brain surgery, I also have a diagnosis of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) which, for me, causes major problems with sleep. Early this year, I went through 6 months of treatement to learn how to reduce the symptoms of PTSD. And although I've developed some tools, this radio station has been a major contributor to help me sleep again. This music has allowed me to reach a deeper level of calmness from within, and relaxes and reduces stress and anxiety. This music appears to slow my thoughts down to an almost complete-halt, in which produces a much more profound and deeper sleep. I was not taking any medications to help me sleep as it can leave one very sleepy and tired the next day. So medications was not an option as I work for a living, I am so happy that I found this station which has brought me relief from my PTSD syndrom. I wake up feeling as though I have slept, refreshed, alert and more focused at work, something I have not been able to do in years. Thank you so much....
I am on meds for high anxiety and AADD, so my mind, even on the meds is often chattery and buzzing and it's difficult to concentrate on any one thing (not all the time, but a good part of it). Sunday mid-evening I took a nap with Calm Radio - Sleep on WMP and when I woke up, I wasn't still sleepy, but I just did not want to get out of bed. I just wanted to continue listening to the music playing on my PC speakers. I'm a bodybuilder and I just found out that there is actually conclusive evidence that certain kinds of music can give an BBer more "oomph" in the gym lifting weights and such...more reps, more sets, and so on. Listening to Calm Radio - Sleep streaming, I realized how much more quiet my mind could be if I listened to your station all the time, because I honestly do feel a calm that I don't often experience during the day. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to finding out what VIP audio quality is like when the audio quality is already superb.
You're my parrot's favorite station when I'm away at work! Carrie..Portland OR
I listened to calmradio free for a while. Now I am a full fledged VIP Member and I LOVE IT! You guys are the best! Your customer service is great and the clarity of the stations and quality of the music is top notch. I play it all day long at work and am considering what phones you have apps for as I am nearing the purchase of a new phone. Keep up the good work! Peace & Joy, Maggie :)
The 192k stream quality is insanely good. Can't say how pleased I am that for once a product was better than advertised. Nice work. William
I have to say that I am still amazed at your near instantaneous response! I have never had ANYONE answer a support request in such a timely - but more importantly, personal - and HELPFUL - manner! Nancy
THANK YOU! - for everything... can't tell you what a difference "CalmRadio" has made - it has saved my sanity these past few weeks as I try to deal with my own chronic illnesses and the horrific situation in the Gulf - especially the "SLEEP" channel has - helped met to cope and find moments of peace.
Good morning. Here I am in Brazil, always listening your channel, far better then GOTRADIO, without any critical consideration. Thanks, Dalmo
Thank you for this amazing music. I could listen all day everyday. Namaste' Life Teacher/ Jessica
Spa/ambient channel is the best! Has helped me a great deal with my anxiety. Gena from Lodi CA

Good Morning Eric, I wanted to write and update you on our Calm Radio Stream. It is working beautifully! I listen everyday and enjoy it immensely. In fact, I enjoy it too much! We have two audio zones in our home. I had the Apple TV set up in my sewing studio (lower level) and listen to the channels while I work away. I discovered how much I miss accessing it in the other areas of the home though, as that audio was supplied by an iPod. So a few hundred dollars later, I purchased a second Apple TV and small LCD monitor to replace the iPod. Now I can listen to Calm Radio throughout the entire house. Hope that brightens your day! Blessings,Kathie
Just letting you know we're getting Calm Radio crystal clear down here in the beautiful Golden Bay area of the South Island of New Zealand. I love the music stream and have just signed up for a 12 month VIP subscription. Ken
I've come to love listening to Calm Radio while I sleep and I'm eager to try your other stations. W. Gordon, Chicago IL
This is the best "music to work by" that I have found! I'm an at-home "virtual lawyer". D. Scardilli, Absecon NJ
I am a fan of Calm Radio and play it for my students from my desktop. The music has a positive affect on students and they get more work done when I have it playing. R Donaldson. Sault Sainte Marie, MI
Eric, wow, am I impressed with your responsiveness! no streaming problems, no jumping to another station. In fact, if there's one thing I notice, it's that the sound from your stations are more bright and clear than from any other -- even those that claim to have the same streaming rate. Even Pandora at their 192K does not sound quite as sharp as your files...T. Brown, Louisville KY
Hello, I am so happy with your radio station, you make me a happy day, THANK YOU! You are wonderful , I listen to music when I draw and I think I found my favorite radio station! Cecilia.
Hey guys - stumbled upon calmradio via iTunes Radio...I LOVE IT! I play it in my office all day long. Fantastic. Don S.
Thank you a million times over for your radio station. Every type of music that I absolutely love is available any where I am at any time. You have to be the very best provider of music anywhere. Carol Lee
I’m enjoying Positivity at the moment. Superb selection. Many thanks once more for creating and maintaining this wonderful selection of music! Patrick
Your station is the best, Thanks for this radio station, sincerely with Aloha, Suanne
I love this broadcast! Best regards Anna
Eric, Just wanted to let you know I am thrilled with calmradio especially the pieces with your name and I assume that you playing the instrument (piano). Every time I hear a piece that I really like I look over at the computer and inevitably you are the artist. By the way I retired so I listen many more hours each day and night. Thank you again for bringing so much joy and inspiration into my life. I taught Art K through 12 grade for 42 years and now I am allowing myself the time to paint again. Calmradio is so relaxing and inspiring that I am finding it easier to get tuned into drawing and painting.

Hi Eric! I have a Droid - and am enjoying the different channels on my 2 hour (1 hour each way) commute to Gainesville daily. Not so bad now! I purchased the Logitech Squeezebox in black. My husband bought a router. I think we're all set- waiting on the radio. I've loved good music all my life, but had to settle on trying to find one decent classical station wherever we've lived. I have never found a station like yours, and I must say this; if I sat down and wrote out every wonderful genre of music I could dream of to add beauty and joy to one's life, I could never have made it as complete a listing as you offer. Perfection. That's what you've achieved.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
You're a lucky man Eric, working for Calm Radio. Please tell the people that put this station together - it is pure genius!!! Cathy S, Alachua, FL
