Radio streaming and data usage

Does streaming radio for 20 minutes a day use much data? Sorry I'm not savvy on these things

Depending on the bitrate of the audio stream, you can use from around 60MB to 120MB per hour.

Anything you do on the Internet will use data.  How much depends on many factors; you may need to install something to monitor usage, such as the free Glasswire, which is available for Windows and for Android.
