Could anyone advise what I would need to be able to get streaming audio from radio stations that are online? I've been able to do that on my old iMac for years, but I am unsure what software I would need to also do that on my brand new Macmini.

There are also many widgets that pull up internet radio station feeds. Start looking here: http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/radio_podcasts/

I have a few of these and my favorite is Rabbit Radio which lets you pick from a list of NPR stations. For me, these are among the most useful widgets I have--it's a particularly good use of the Dashboard.

Thanks, you guys. I have downloaded the suggested software, as well as a few widgets and am now, once again, able to plug into online radio! Thanks for the help!

I just use Itunes to play internet radio feeds.

It also works for the college radio station of my school (I play DJ there sometimes :p).

I use iTunes for on-line radio but the selection is limited.

Is there anyway to add to the radio stations that are prepackaged with iTunes?

You can add streams to a playlist by downloading the .pls file.

From all appearances, stations can be added to iTunes’ Radio list only by Apple. You can, however, add other stations to the iTunes Library and playlists of your own.


To do so, find a station you want streamed to your computer (the free Shoutcast provides a load of links to streaming stations). Click the link to the station and download the resulting .pls (playlist) file to your computer. If the playlist isn’t automatically opened in iTunes, drag the file into iTunes’ main window. It will be appear in the iTunes Library as an MPEG audio stream. You can now create a new playlist and drag your stations into it, thus giving you access to all your custom stations from one location.
