But that's not all. New internet apps will help people use the service more easily.

One installs the Radioplayer into the 'Start' menu on your computer. With just one click, users will be able to access hundreds of BBC, commercial, student and community stations.

The second app is linked to Google Chrome, placing it predominantly at the top of the browser.

Michael Hill, Managing Director of Radioplayer said: 'These new apps will help even more people discover the awesome range of UK radio.

Online dreams

'300 stations, one simple click away, is an achievement we could only dream about this time last year.'

Radioplayer is also backed by Global, GMG Radio, Absolute and RadioCentre. It is aimed at increasing digital listening by simplifying the way radio works on the internet.

Recent RAJAR figures for quarter three 2011 show a 32% increase in online listening hours year-on-year.
