FERNDALE, MI--(Marketwire - October 22, 2009) - What's on Livio's menu this fall?

The NPR Radio by Livio Radio now offers quick and organized access to programming that matters to people over 50 -- programs on topics ranging from wellness to the economy and the arts -- available through AARP Radio.

Livio's creators are set to show their exciting Reciva enabled radio, now featuring an AARP Radio menu, at the AARP's 2009 National Event & Expo in Las Vegas, "Vegas@50+," Oct. 22-24.

"Adding AARP as an option to the Livio radio is a huge benefit for AARP members looking to rock out and catch up on programming, all away from the PC," said Greg Kim, Livio's sales and marketing manager.

The addition of the AARP menu is yet another enhancement to a product that uses a wired or wireless Internet connection to provide listeners with the freedom to enjoy internet radio in the home, without using a computer. The Livio Radio also gives listeners access to thousands of other free programming options available over the Internet.

"We're excited to see Livio add the AARP menu to its radio, which can only expand the ways our members can enjoy the growing list of audio content we make available live or on-demand," said Larry Gannon, vice president of AARP Radio.
