Default Internet Radio

As I happily post away each and every day, I get tired of my MP3 library...yawn...and I only know of a few internet radio sites. Now I know that there was this whole dabacle with internet radio and the RIAA, but one of my faves is back up and running.

Does anyone know any good net radio sites? What kinda stuff is out there?

Not a site plug, but I like www.netmusique.com

I like to listen to this if I'm using a computer with a good IC.
Otherwise I'm stuck with 56K. :( But you already know this site.

Sure.

If you have winamp or windows media on your computer, internet radio will work. Basically it is privately run websites that have massive databases of different genres of music. Whether it be jazz, hip hop, rock, pop, swing, latin, spoken word, comedy..whatever.

Some radio stations also have the option to listen online. With those sites, you get the commercials, but you also get the disc jockeys.

Visit some of the websites listed above and check it out. Recently the RIAA (recording institute association of America) ruled that the webcasts of music was illegal and all sites where shut down for fear of royalty payments. But a court injunction in the US has allowed internet radio to get back to what they do best.
