    at a better quality than traditional radio. Unlike broadcast
    radio which is an audio-only medium, Internet radio stations are free to offer interactive programming and
    can include images, animation, and even video. These attributes,
    such as instrumentation, vocals, lyrics,
    harmony and almost 400 others allow songs with similar attributes to be
    related to each other and played together in a
    pleasant music mix.
