The accessibility comments here are the exact same as they are for the KLove app. Same company, and exact same layout. The tabs along the bottom of the app are usible to a point, but they are labled kind of funny. The tab on the far left is the main player window. Near the middle of the screen is the favorite button. This allows you to favorite a track that you hear. Also note that the alarm is not accessible. I can't even see it at all in the settings screen.Other than that, if your just wanting to listen to the music, it works just fine. Just open the app, and it starts playing automatically. This can be changed in settings.
VoiceOver reads a few page elements.
Few buttons are clearly labeled.
There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Way back in the '90s I sent a note to the webmaster at Air1 asking that alt tags be added to make the site accessible. Within a short time they had made the changes. I haven't been to the web site in years, so I don't know if they retained that accessibility, but they may be open to polite suggestion of what needs to be done to fix the app. One hopes the same can be said of the actual developer of the app.
Wow, I didn't know Air1 existed back then. I'll remember that advice. THX
