Well I'm sad to hear that you couldn't ask the simple question properly--without being very obscure--the first time.
I want the code because I'd like to learn from it--the way it's coded and what formats internet radio providers use--and additionally to have confidence that the code does not do anything on my computer that I don't want it to do.
By using their radio, you are blindly trusting this developer not to have done something with it, such as using your computer to mine cryptocurrencies or reporting NSA of what you're doing. I'm saying that to me it seems it may be possible, if for instance a cryptocurrency expert decided to fund the developer for their doctorate in exchange for adding in a bit of code. Although the uploaded code itself will not prove what is actually being downloaded and executed on your computer, it will at least give some feeling of confidence.
By confidence I mean the confidence I lost from them not having the code open while stating that it is, which then would be a false statement. I do NOT intend to trust a liar. And if this were really the case, there were probably people who contributed to this project by suggesting in radio stations because they thought it was an open source project, who got dunked on. I hate to imagine this were the case, but judging from my limited information, it seems this could actually be the case.
