Gradio – A GTK3 App Finding & Listening to Internet Radios

Last updated on July 28th, 2016

There are a few applications available for listening internet radio stations in Ubuntu Desktop. Gradio is new one that allows users to find radio stations by typing a keyword in the search box, and then listen to one internet radio by clicking on it.

The simple tool requires GTK3 >= 3.18, so it works on Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10, and their derivatives, e.g., Linux Mint 18 and Elementary OS 0.4 Loki.

How to install Gradio in Ubuntu 16.04:

The pre-compiled binary packages are available for download at the link below:
