Does anyone know of any apps for streaming live radio from the UK (I live in the UK), to include BBC stations ( - without jailbreaking)? I know some only work on the iphone.

I've heard of Wunder Radio app - does that work on the iPod Touch? and is it any good? Are there any others?

I have a 2nd Gen. iPod Touch 16GB and am new to ipods. I bought it recently and am trying to use it to listen to BBC radio stations live via wifi.

Any help would be appreciated.

I use FStream, which is free and accepts BBC radio links (and any others you care to try). For BBC World Service I added http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/meta/tx/nb/live_news_au_nb.asx at the 'edit presets' menu. I think you can find others by looking at the links on the BBC website.

Thanks for your reply, chrisz. yes, I've already got FStream, and use it for Leo Laporte's podcast radio programmes streaming. It works v well, once configured. I'll look on the bbc website as you said for links for the other bbc stations. You can't recall whereabouts on the bbc site they'll be found ?

Correction - managed to find URL for the links for FStream - http://bbcstreams.com/ has a full page of them, if anyone's interested.
