Whats the radio station ?

As it's audio it's not going to be a DIVX issues as thats for video.

You could try installing Perian or Flip4Mac on the off chance it is some weird codec they are using but it might be you just need Flash Sad or Silverlight Confused

Ok, here is what happened for me.

I searched for KVLG, and went to the web site.

I clicked on the 'Listen Live' image and was given "broadwave.asx.'

I tired opening it with QuickTime, and Windows Media Player. Both didn't like the broadwave.asx file. VLC opened it and is currently streaming KBUK.
