desktopmetronome - Jun 3 2017 at 12:09am Copy Link
eb235 I downloaded the trial and my feelings are mixed.

Saturn Radio does work, and has a large number of stations (more than 20000).
But of course not my favorite... Here's a report.

First I searched for it in the list and the search capabilities felt a bit clumsy :
- the results are not given in alphabetical order and are strange, e. g. a search for rtu does give RTU and RTU 89.8 FM but deep down among lots of other stations.
- you can search for Switerland as a country and/or as a... language ! (BTW 3 official languages there : German, French, Italian and a fourth national language : Romanche)

You, or your fingers, have to remind that the mouse wheel operates on the **selected** list, not the one over which the mouse is (it's usual but not really convenient). Thus a simple click means "select a list" and you need to double click to select an item in the list. After a search the list you searched is **not** selected, so you have to click once on any item to be able to use the wheel to browse your search results.

Since my favorite is not listed at all I hoped that Saturn Radio could sniff the stream from the Web URL. It does not but did not promise to. (I found the stream URL from

Then the small button "URL" does allow to play the URL in the clipboard.

Finally I wanted to add this new station in my favorite list. I could but the name was blank (suggestion : default to the stream URL). Then I hoped I could modify the station info (right click) but I could only enter a URL not a name. Much to my surprise (but to my delight also) sometime after, when I refreshed the favorite list, I saw the stream URL as the name of my (first) favorite. But the name is still not amendable in the station info window.

The recording capabilities sounded OK. I suggest to add the word stop besides Rec when recording is on (the button goes red but color blind people, too, may enjoy listening to radio).
And I suggest to make the word Close clickable in addition to the black button which may be hard to see on a dark background (same for Minimize)
The volume button is a small challenge to control with mouse movements : it should be controllable with the mouse wheel.

In a nutshell Radio Saturn does the job but could profit from some streamlining. Given its free lifetime upgrade, I think I'll buy to support future development.
Jun 3 2017 at 2:37am Copy Link
CthulhuSaves I just wanted to comment on the "fine tuning" aspect in the description. It's not as unique as implied. It's actually virtually identical to the station browser in WinAmp, which I dearly love and has been free for many, many years. Don't get me wrong, though. This isn't a criticism. Although I've yet to try Saturn Radio (going to grab the trial version), I very much like what I've seen and read about it. Being able to record songs I like that are playing, and that I have no clue what they are, is certainly a desirable addition to what I'm used to, and the classic stereo skin is most welcoming.

I'll be testing this on a "media player" type PC attached to my TV in the living room. Fingers crossed. :)
Jun 3 2017 at 6:42am Copy Link
Kelly Hamblin I am having a very difficult time adjusting anything with those round knobs. Very difficult. Anybody have an idea of what I might be doing wrong?

Believe me when I say I've used a mouse for many, many years. I hope future versions will use something else, like a slider, or something I can move easily and stop where I choose to. This way I fumble around and never get the knob exactly where I want it.

Another thought after reading another post. I've installed a trial from the website. If I decide to take advantage of today's offer, will I have to download and install again?

twm Looks like relic from the 1024x768 era. Good concept, but outdated UX.
Jun 3 2017 at 1:18pm Copy Link
Kelly Hamblin I rather like the UI. I despise the modern Win 10 look and I'm a real ribbon hater, so this suits me. This kind of thing is very subjective. Lots of work for the developer, I suppose, but I always appreciate UI options. That way twm and I could both be happy. :)

Jim Hilton Anyway to increase the font size? My vision sucks. Also I can't figure out the search, i used;

All News -> USA -> English but the box on the far right shows no results.

Jun 3 2017 at 3:32pm Copy Link
Alexander User Barb- You should contact guys from bitsdujour, i have nothing with the purchase process

JIm- type 'news' in the style columns and choose 'talk-news' instead of 'all news'

Kelly-knobs work exactly like sliders:Click aknob and move your mouse up or down verticaly.Don't try to emulate twisting or something just move mouse vertically while you are holding it down
desktopmetronome - Jun 3 2017 at 8:42pm Copy Link
eb235 Thank you Alexander User for giving an example of what I meant about Saturn Radio UI.
A knob is something that we intuitively twist.
A slider is something that we intuitively... slide.
If we need to apply the logic of a slider when using a knob, it's counter-intuitive. We can get used to it for sure, but the real question is : do we need a UI that looks like a radio set so that we can listen to a radio player ? As a developer, **you** answer the question the way you want but, as users, we'd feel more comfortable if the UI was more coherent.

Louis H While it would be nice to have a few extra "bells and whistles," such as a sleep timer - or the option to start it as an alarm - the simplicity of this program makes it very attractive to me. It is very much like the radios of old and does that function quite well.

The recording that I have done is at 128kbps and is decent for recording things that really should be bought if I want a higher quality bit rate. There are some stations that do not seem to work, but there are far more that do. I am not sure if the database is updated every now and then, but it does allow setting "Favorites." It does not, however, seem to have an easy to use way to enter your own stations if they are not on the list.

Back to my original comment, it is very simple to use, and I had International stations up and playing within less than a minute after running it. Nothing fancy like skipping to the next song in the playlist, but then that was never a feature of my old radio that I would listen to at night many years ago.

It uses about 44mb of memory and very little CPU power while running. It didn't interfere with anything else I had running along with it. My system is running Win 10 Pro - 64 bit - Insider Preview release. (Current)

I like it!

Craig S. Hello, running your trial. I'm interested, but looking for a particular station: Jazz Radio 97.3 (Lyon, France). I know this is available to stream from other apps. Is this something you can add ? Thanks for letting me know.

Louis H This was a repeat of what I said above. It told me it had failed to post it. :)
Nov 10 2017 at 12:10pm Copy Link
Alexander User Craig you can just enter "jazz radio" in the search field on the right and it will already be there as Jazz Radio FR

Thanks Louis that's correct.
You can use 'url' button and click "play from clipboard":First you have to have this link copied.:
From there you can add it to favorites,or use it from recent list again.

Alexander User Database is updated. And although some stations don't always work wast majority does work. Stations may be unavailable for different reasons:server is down,bad internet connection, they are doing maintenance etc...
All I can say is that all stations worked at least once in last two weeks so they are included as active

I don't see much in the FINE PRINT this time so I have to ask if there are any restrictions on the number of computers I can install the program on for myself?

Also, nothing is mentioned about updates which I am assuming are free indefinitely? It the database is updated as you say, will we be notified of these updates and able to run them free indefinitely?

Thank you for this interesting program!

The problem was that everytime I would try to purchase I got an error message screen from your server saying there was an error. NEVER was there anything indicating that a transaction had taken place. Before the credit card I tried PayPal and had the exact same result except that I never went to PayPal to complete the transaction. Your server is really messed up in the purchase area!

Ricky Rick @ Alexander User

How safe is this program seeing that it can connect to radio stations Worldwide via URLs and/or etc. And also seeing that it can only be used while connected to the Internet/Web (which I totally understand why) but it still makes me a bit uneasy.

I tried the download on my Laptop and think it's a great program and want to buy it - but - am somewhat afraid that using the program could somehow lead to catching viruses/malware.

Can you quench my fears by telling me that Saturn Radio is really-really-really safe to use because of how it works that it would be next to impossible to catch viruses/malware?

Hoping for a favorable answer as I do want to buy Saturn Radio!

Nico Westerdale @Ricky Rick - please note that the program is fully safe and passes our virus scan here:
As only music is downloaded then there is no possibility of catching a virus.

I believe that the program in and of itself is virus free - and even though only music is downloaded when being used - wouldn't it still be possible for some hacker/cracker to circumvent a URL so that when a (certain/popular) Radio Station link(s) is clicked-on that it could lead to an infected URL?

Maybe I'm too paranoid here - but I don't use any programs that have to be constantly connected to the Internet to be able to use them and especially if a program has access to literally thousands of links around the globe.

Am I just being too paranoid?

Colin McAllister My PC is currently broken. The replacement will not arrive for five days. Can I buy this software today and install it onto my new PC next week?

Alexander User Ricky I think chances of such a scenario happening are similar to chances that someone using regular radio would broadcast sound that puts everyone to sleep and than undisturbed go from house to house taking what he wants. That is to say probably possible for an evil genius but highly unlikely:-)

Colin,yes you can.

John Buchan I've downloaded a trial and it works fine with sound broadcast through the monitor speakers. I also have a pair of USB connected Bowers & Wilkins MM1 speakers connected to my PC. When I switch the B&W speakers on the sound feed normally transfers automatically to them from the monitor speakers, where the sound quality is much richer. That happens when a listen to a music CD in the DVD drive, for instance. The sound feed from Saturn Radio, however, doesn't transfer. It stays on the monitor speakers. Is there a reason for this?

Thanks Craig - but if I get concerned I can run it with my Acronis "Try & Decide" feature which would work in some way similar to Sandboxie but even better and more secure - but also maybe more time consuming : )

Michael R. I would like to be able to call SaturnRadio from the command-line with a desired radio-station as argument.This should either call SaturnRadio to start or change to the given station.

If this is not already implemented - is it? - will this be able in an upcoming update of SaturnRadio? Would be great...

EXCELLENT Program!! I just bought it ....

2 WISHES for future Update -- Make it so the TEXT can be made larger and have it so the UI can be stretched Larger.

Loaded it on my DeskTop PC, my wife's Desktop PC and my Laptop.

My wife is a Filipina so it's nice she will be able to get some Philippines Stations.

On my PC with the headphones (USB Sennheiser) it sounds Super FANTASTIC!

Nice proggy. I really-really like it a lot!

Sabrina@Home The last version from may 2018 was also numberd as v1.2. Is this v1.2 the same as promoted in may and if not, what are the changes?
A nice to have feature would be to sort the stations by soundquality in bitrates, are there plans to integrate this feature?
As an idea for the gray field between the levelmeter and the volumeknob, would it be difficult to program an oszilloskope like display to show the left and right waveforms of the sound?
By the way: Nice program for playing musicstations. Much sucess for the future.

Alexander User There are a few small additions so I didn't increase version number.
Shortcuts for volume,mute...
Global hot key that let's you bring up the application any time using keyboard...
Stations are updated...
Oscilloscope should be easy but I'm not sure how would it go with the rest of design.
Today when broadband is standard all streams are pretty decent in sound quality, didn't occur to me that sorting by bit rate would be of interest

Alexander User I can assure you that it is not a virus. What you have is so called 'false positive'
That is when anti virus software wrongly recognize something as virus or malware even though it is not. Happens all the time and is very annoying because you can't do nothing about it. I don't know how many times I have written to different AV makersnwith request to do something and they never answer. Or if they do the harm to me and other software vendors is already made. So either you believe me or ask bitsdujour guys to refund you.
By the way every software on bitsdujur is scanned ,here is Saturn radio report:

Steven Avery Saturn Radio is fun. I checked the bluegrass gospel and found a few stations, although six months later some of them seem to be gone, or off for the night:).

And It is good to have the variety and also the ability to have the choices of real radio stations instead of simply a pre-packaged selecion. I'll probably give some feedback later.


That said, I bought the program in May. Somehow it reverted back to a trial (which restricts you to the recent list.) So I stopped using it. The file I have from that purchase day ends with _setup .. perhaps it was a website download?

Not realizing I had bought it, I bought it again! Oops.

Mike Shanahan Alexander User: In all honesty, the tirade against the caution shown by AV scanners is not warranted. In your case, it’s partly your fault. They DO protect people, sometimes by default, from non-SSL sites. Having a website unprotected by SSL and a certificate shows a flagrant disdain for security in 2020. No excuse. Great software though! Good job!

Sabrina@Home I have been using Saturn Radio version 1.2 since 2018 and wonder if the product will be developed further at all. It's 2021 and Saturn Radio is still offered in version 1.2 without ever having been updated. Some stations have since ceased operation or are now available under other URLs, such as in my favorites list.
There might not be much more that can be done to improve the user interface, except for the appearance, but the most beautiful interface of a (database) program is of no use at all if access to changed entries is no longer possible.
An anti-virus program, for example, doesn't necessarily need a nice interface to work well, but without an automatically updated virus database it's relatively useless, and the same is true of programs like Saturn Radio.
Every user of Saturn Radio should be informed at all times that and where a new database is available for download, just like anti-virus programs are.However, it would be much better if the database (station list) would update itself automatically.
For advanced users it would be helpful to be able to edit the station entries themselves and to assign the currently used URLs to the stations, but there is neither a text-based station list in the program directory nor an option for this in the program interface.
I understand that it is almost impossible for the developer to keep all URLs of the many offered stations up to date, but I think that it would be possible to significantly improve the up-to-dateness of the database of stations through the multitude of users if there were appropriate interaction possibilities.
Thanks for Saturn Radio and thinking about my suggestions.

Paul Crozier Hi.
I have downloaded the demo but every station says either
"Can't open the file"...
"Unsupported file format"...
"Connection timedout".... or
"Some other mystery error"
The only way I can make it work is to paste in the URL of the station but what would be the point of that?

Uninstalled and reinstalled and get the same thing?
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

John User Hi, I just paid the $10 price to purchase this because I like the program very much. Another reason I purchased it was recently I received notification that my trial had expired. As I said, I am happy to purchase the program because I like it and use it daily.

My question is: without entering any registration data such as username, password, etc. how is this version 1.2 I downloaded any different than the trial version? How does the software know I purchased the program?

Thank you.

Oh, I did download the trial 1.2 version. I just received an email from you with instructions to download, but no need to register. Again, should I uninstall the trial version and reinstall this one? Is the one mentioned in the email different than the trial version? Thanks again

Steven Aves I've said this before here on Bitsdujour about Saturn Radio; it's the best radio player for the money you'll find. Yes, there are others who keep the radio database more up to date (I am guessing since there are so many stations, how could I know?).

I do wish I could edit the names of the stations I add. Having the URL as the name is not intuitive.

To be clear; I purchased Saturn years ago through BDJ. Any development has not officially taken place since then. But there are shortcomings that start to weigh, for example streams sometimes run much faster -like they're buffered from flying out of a cannon....

So, if there would be a higher (or revised version) of 1.2, I would still like to see the download link appear in mailbox.
