    OH MAN! Look no further than Nicecast. It's easier than picking your nose, if that's your thing. Seriously, download it and you will have a streaming radio station in 30 seconds, no joke. It can't be beat. Period.

    You have to watch out with that, there are lots of laws to watch out for regarding streaming music, especially if you don't own it and haven't licensed it. Cough-Cough.
