Online Media Collections

My father in law (one of the Outlaws) was going to spend $20 on a dongle to provide a series of TV and radio channels to listen to. "Huh?", I said, "Why spend $20 bucks?"... there is a lot of stuff out there...

Here are some suggestions for your listening and viewing pleasure of but a small slice of media collections in multiple formats... as a simple example... the TV channels you would watch with the dongle? ALL of them and more are here... for free... the radio channels??? Here.
