GNOME Internet Radio Locator (GIRL) version 1.0.0 ("Fenchurch")

GIRL is the GNOME Internet Radio Locator program that allows the users
to easily find and record live radio programs on radio broadcasters on
the Internet.

GNOME Internet Radio Locator (GIRL) version 1.0.0 ("Fenchurch") is now
available.  The first major 1.0.0 release is dedicated to the writings
of the English writer, humorist and dramatist Douglas Adams.

GIRL 1.0.0 supports search by location for the 42 supported radio
stations.  42 is Douglas Adams' Answer to Life, the Universe and
Everything in book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  Life is
finite.  The Universe is infinite.  Listen to and/or record Everything
that is broadcasted live from 42 radio stations on Earth included with
this program.

GIRL was developed for the GNOME desktop and requires one audio helper
such as Totem ( to be installed for
playback and StreamRipper ( to be
installed for recording live radio streams of supported radio stations.

The station list is available in XML from

A user without root on a GNOME desktop can add his or her Favourite
Stations in $HOME/.girl/girl.xml (see src/girl.xml for the syntax).

If a user starts the program and exits the program, then the last radio
station that the user was listening to, appears selected in the Stations
list.  The default girl Stations setting is stored in $HOME/.gnome2/girl
