Random Web Radio Station

To pull a random radio station from my stream list, using vlc, jshon and curl on the terminal, enter the following:

cvlc $(curl -s http://johnvidler.co.uk/radio/data/streams.js | jshon -e $(shuf -i 0-`curl -s http://johnvidler.co.uk/radio/data/streams.js | tr -cd ‘{‘ | wc -c` -n 1) -e stream -u)

It’s not terribly efficient, but what the heck, it’s only ran once per radio station 🙂
