The Classical MPR stream will appear on your app home screen, displaying the title and composer of the piece being streamed as well as the radio host on air. The play/pause button is at the bottom of the screen. If you don't hear the live stream, make sure that you've selected "play" and that your device's volume is turned up.
Note: The MPR app defaults to the last-listened stream the next time it's opened.
To view recently aired pieces, tap the app home screen and scroll down. Music is listed beginning with the most recent piece that has finished playing. The starting time of each piece of music is listed above its name.
