    Before i switched, I could listen to my favorite radio station from where I used to live while I was online. I try to listen now on the Mac, in fact I try to listen to ANY radio station streaming their feed, and I cant. I get an error saying my browser isnrt supported. How can i do this? How can i listen to the radio stations? It wont work in firefox OR Safari.

    Any suggestions?

    Try using Internet Explorer for Mac. I've found that whenever I run into a site that doesn't like Safari, it will like and work fine with Internet Explorer.

    Also, iTunes has a few Internet Radio stations, you may want to look there.

    There are several streaming formats (Real, Windows Media). Mac versions are available (versiontracker.com). Make sure you have them all installed.

    There's also a way to make Safari appear as Windows IE 6. Do a search for it, to be honest I can't quite remember how to. You have to enable a hidden menu. And yeah, be sure to have Windows Media Player and Real for OS X installed.
