New server on LAUT.FM

Dear listeners,

it’s been a long time since I last wrote on this Blog, you know, I have been very busy with my music but I haven’t forgotten Milano Lounge listeners. Behind the scene, as usual, I have been adding and removing songs to create an always changing music landscape. In my strive for improvement, I have also moved the station to LAUT.FM, which will be easier to manage, give a wider music choice and it’s free of charge for me. Yes, unfortunately, donations have been going down lately and I have to save what I can.

Milano Lounge: from July 1st only Creative Commons music

From 1st July 2022 Milano Lounge, the popular Milanese web radio specializing in Chillout / EDM music, has decided to broadcast only Creative Commons songs.

This decision was made by Roberto Bocchetti, DJ and editor of Milano Lounge, to contain costs in the current economic situation.

“The Creative Commons repertoire offers music of the highest quality, suitable for the Milano Lounge format, and the tracks will continue to be selected one by one, to create a unique musical journey.”

Born in 2015, Milano Lounge has established itself as the most listened to independent specialized web radio, with almost 1 million unique listeners in 2021.

By its own choice, the broadcaster has no advertising and is supported only by donations from listeners.

Problems with Sonos : Milano Lounge not available on Sonos and Tunein

Dear listeners,

some of you reported problems when trying to listen to Milano Lounge with a Sonos device via Tunein.

The funny thing is that the issue appears randomly on some connections only: for instance, one listener can listen from the office, but not from home.

Sonos informed me that the issue was due to Tunein. Tunein informed me that – from their side – everything seemed to work smoothly and they encountered no issues when checking.

Personally, I believe that this strange behaviour is due to the blocking by Tunein of some IPs in different geographical areas (Geo-Blocking), as Milano Lounge is authorized for Italy only.

This was done because Tunein lost a lawsuit with Warner and Sony, which took the app to London court for copyright violation.

To broadcast worldwide I should buy licenses from every Country of the world where I intend to broadcast…… With the same amount of money, I would rather buy a new flat.

Anyway, there might be some solutions to have Milano Lounge back.

By the way, thank you to all of you who listened to our Milano Lounge playlist on Spotify while unable to listen to the live station. Some of you told me the playlist was nice, but not like the real radio, which makes me very proud and proves my point that some human beings are still better in selecting music than the A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) of the computers.

When I say that Milano Lounge comes from my heart, I really mean it, it’s not a slogan! And, I am very proud to have such attentive listeners, caring for the station.


  1. turn off your Sonos device, and unplug it for 1 minute
  2. turn off your WIFI Modem, and unplug it for 1 minute
  3. re-plug your WIFI Modem and turn it on
  4. when you have full Internet connection, re-plug your Sonos and turn it on
  5. Add Milano Lounge manually to Tunein
