Listening to these Internet Radio Stations works better if you have a fast connection, such as DSL or Cable Modem. They require either MS Media Player, RealAudio Player, iTunes, or MP3 Stream Player (links to download are available on the sites.) Also, sometimes one player program will work better than the other on any one site, if they offer both that is. The quality of the sound will vary from time to time, depending upon 'net traffic and other technical issues. There are tons of choices and more every day. I've tried to list a few that might be of interest to you. The 'broadcast' stations generally have the poorest sound quality and commercials, but may have greater local interest.
