Yeah it uses the standard Radio Browser resource just like the one added to Foobar v2 versions.

Why on earth would you NOT want the option of lyrics from streaming??  I assume you mean viewing them when they are sent as radio stream metadata, which can be turned off if desired in Prefs/Tags(2)/auto-tagging/lyrics/auto-retrieve.  It's true they get downloaded and cached, but that can be dealt with in a jiffy using the batch delete file posted here:

Run that regularly (after changing the "set dir" path to match yours) and you'll be clean and mean!

The Radio Browser database is stored online (https://www.radio-browser.info/), not within MusicBee (or Foobar)!  The searcher that uses it in MusicBee is the 4th tab in MB's "Show Station Directories" window choice from the Radio header menu.

You never did answer my question as to WHY you want to disable radio station lyrics but that's up to you.

hi sveakul
maybe I could ask if there could be possibile search the radio station name or the nation, what do you think?
could be even better searching for a nation or name , there are radio like radio paradise ,I guess it's "eclettic  music"
but is there an option to avoid to download lyrics for streaming?
thank Pal!

FYI...

The Radio Browser is currently showing an error when attempting to select a genre. "Bad Gateway" coming from the Radio Browser side - not MB's error.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
