Default App keeps closing when streaming audio

I love the program, it's very slick and responsive with a great feature set.

However i bought it primarily for streaming internet radio from URL's.

Trouble is, it keeps quitting. I have to restart it upwards of 10 times a day.

I'm running Lollipop 5.0.2 on a Vodafone Smart 6 Ultra.

I work as a courier and have to run the company's app in the foreground, so i keep BSPlayer in the background, streaming LBC radio:

LBC London

LBC News

I've seen some suggestions online that Lollipop over-aggressively kills background apps, especially those streaming audio - and indeed, have this same issue when using VLC Player for internet radio too. But BSPlayer's much better than VLC, hence why i paid the licence for it...

I also use Rocket Player, and notice that it doesn't seem to have this problem, although it's just playing local files, not streaming (which it can't do). Still, it just sits in the background all day playing tunes until i tell it to stop...

Any chance BSPlayer could be made similarly persistent? I just want it to keep streaming internet audio with single-minded resolve, until i tell it not to. Even if it's in the background, which it normally will be. Even if Lollipop tries to kill it every 10 minutes, which it evidently does. And even if it temporarily loses the signal, which is sometimes inevitable - i just want it to stay put and wait patiently until it can re-acquire the data stream, and then start playing it again automatically.

I don't want to have to keep fiddling with my phone to get the radio back on - especially as i'm driving all day! It's a distracting nuisance!

Many thanks,
