Customable radio station list
Project log #2
On Oct 31, 2016 at 11:01 PM - 0 comments

Due to many changes on url addresses from the Radio France group, the list of the radio stations is now customable by editing the RadioFreqMap.csv file stored into the Music folder. If this file can not be load at application start up, for example at first time launch, the application loads the hard coded station list from the statics methods AddParisRadios() , AddAddictRadios() , and AddFrenchLWRadios() , and try to store them in a new RadioFreqMap.csv file. You are sure to get a correct .csv file, and then, customize it as you want. You notice that the columns of this file exactly match with the AddStation() method described above.
