As far as I know, there has never been an am/fm radio in a berry.

You can check slacker,iheartradio, or another app(I forgot the name) to sub as a radio

I use Slacker and Pandora. They're apps that you can obtain via AppWorld. Furthermore, they are very data intensive so make sure you have an unlimited data plan.

Slacker is a radio application for BB, but the word usually means lazy.

Apps = Applications
