Commercial radio bosses have unveiled an online player that showcases more than 200 UK stations and thousands more broadcasters around the world.

The RadioCentrePlayer allows users to listen to every commercial and BBC station in the UK that streams its output on the web.

Listeners can search for different stations in the UK and around the world via genre, radio owner and a range of other criteria.

The Radio Centre, the body that represents commercial radio in the UK, said the player was initially intended as a "trade marketing tool" aimed at people working within the industry.

"Listeners can easily find, play, maintain and share their personal interests and preferences," said the chief executive of the Radio Centre, Andrew Harrison.

"Although priority is given to 'linear' commercial radio - regular programming with presenters - there's a full range of content including podcasts and we even also facilitate listeners' access to audio from the BBC."

The player comes with 48 "preset" stations but users can search for more than 10,000 broadcasters around the world via the player's search engine. It also includes a link to each station's website.

All at what bit-rate, I wonder? Nothing higher than 128kbps I bet. Hardly the FM quality we are accustomed to.

Not much choice for UK commercial radio station listeners either - the vast majority of stations are all clones of each other and sound equally bland and appalling.

Some stations appeal to different listeners who just want to hear music.
