I was wondering if anyone could recommend a family style radio station suitable to listen to during breakfast time or in the afternoon with younger kids. I'm trying to get more native speaker input into our day...but so far I haven't found a nice radio station.
If you are into podcasts, I listen to NPR all the time but that might be suitable for older kids. Then there is Disneyradio for kid friendly songs. Also, you might want to go through iHeartRadio app and search through there. Hope this bit helps!

Great idea! I don't know why it hadn't occurred to me sooner. I also started listening to NPR in the mornings and I'm enjoying it a lot. There's something to live radio (unlike podcasts) that makes you feel connected and accompanied...
But it would be great to have an Internet station in English dedicated to children. I tried the Disney station but I can't get it here in Mexico (it redirects automatically to Disney latinoamerica).

Mayken: On the train from Paris to Cologne we sat next to another ml mother and daughter from our school! Only noticed when almost in Cologne. It's a small ML-ml world!

Mayken: During the traditional German Easter fire, my daughter met her friend from her school day in the ml school! So many birds with one stone! (Sorry for the birds ;))
