    Are you asking for someone to write a tutorial or if you should write one?

    It isn't hard. Just take a look through your vast menu of applications (start with the Multimedia one, of course ), and try different apps for internet radio. You can also go to the sites of the stations (WBUR in Boston has an excellent stream, though I don't know if any of it will run on Linux). Does Real Player run on Linux? I think the choices are usually QT, or RP, or Windows. Possibly the Windows stream will work with Xine, like it would for video? Guess I should try it out in Linux and get back with you.

    The two sites I use ALOT for streaming radion is www.DI.fm and shoutcase.com. Both sites stream music that XMMP will play, since that is about the easiers player to get working. Amarok is nice because it has a prepopulated list of streaming servers you can just drag and drop the one that you want.

    Usually streams are a link directly to the stream like (http://321.321.321.321/stream) or it is a link to a .pls (playlist file). I will many times just download the .pls file (right click save-as) and save it somewhere so I can easily access it again later.

    Xm radio is currently give a free three day trial of their "Online" Satelite music service. Its not bad. If you already have an XM subscription, its just 4 bucks more a month to add the online. For just the online its 7.99 a month.

    Their documentation was fairly certain that it would work in windows (Which it does, as it uses WMP) and in Max osX with the Mac version of Media Player and not at all in Linux.

    However, determined to get it working, I installed the mplayer-plugin for Firefox/Mozilla and I am proud to say that it works.... I may actually pony up the $8 a month for the service......
