    Is there a way I can listen to a local radio station on my mac? If not is there any accessory I can buy to do the same?

    Yes, but never used this particular product before:'

    I had used a Reveal FM (called RadioREVEAL) card back in the Windows NT days that worked great.

    That's pretty cool, might put one in a Hackintosh.

    $50 for a USB AM/FM Radio & software . . . :rolleyes:

    How about just buying a radio?

    Many cable tv systems offer local radio broadcasts, so instead of just radio, get an Elgato TV USB tuner and connect your Mac to cable . . .

    My thought exactly. Just because you have a computer doesn't mean it has to do everything.

    HAHA lies. I'm still pretty mad that my iMac can't play the piano. Is there an application that unlocks that feature?

    You need to pay Apple $ 10 for the firmware unlock to do it.

    kill 2 birds with one stone

    HI adityashah1989,

    yes there are a few accesories out there you can buy to listen to radio. i would suggest the AverTV Hibrid Volar Go M. it comes with the fm antenna and you can also watch tv on your Mac too. the quality of the image is excellent, compared to some other ones out there. give it a try!
