    Who here actually uses the Radio in iTunes? I use it all the time when I don't feel like listening to my favs.

    Hard rockin 80's is my favorite.

    I love it also... I have heard songs on there that I haven't heard since I was a young teenager!

    Very often. I'm in love with SomaFM's Space Station Soma and Secret Agent.

    The problem with the 80s pop and rock selections is that the stations regularly don't work, and even when they do, they're soooooooooo low quality that it's not worth it. I really wish you could customize the station list, as it's messy to have to keep a bunch of pls files around for other stations.

    I love internet radio, though I don't use the iTunes browser much as my ISP relays the majority of stations I listen to. I sure wish I could add/replace the ones in the radio browser with the addresses of my ISPs ones, having them in the music part of my library just doesn't feel right.

    I use it a bunch. ChroniX is probably my most listened to.

    I have to say though, it's weird hearing DJs with foreign accents telling me about foreign news items in far off and distant places. :cool:

    Must be nice. If anyone streams anything where I work, you can bet that the network arch. manager will be at their desk within 5 minutes to remind them of the "acceptable use" Internet policy that they signed during their orientation. :eek: :D

    There is a very awesome 80's station I found where the songs are all 100% US 80's hits, but all of the breaks/commercials were in French. That was neat. (Then again, I'm easily amused. :))
