    You know what I really would like in iTunes?

    Radio presets!

    Six or so Little buttons placed horizontally above the search window. Then I could pick 6 of my favorite stations without navigating through folders.

    Is there a third party addition?

    You can also drag stations into a playlist - I have one called "Radio Presets" where I have all my favorite stations. The stations don't get added to your library so you don't have to worry about them coming on if you're playing your whole library on shuffle (I actually don't know if they would, but the playlist works well so I do it that way).

    Still Looking For iTunes Radio Presets

    I have been using the play list feature in iTunes ever since "voyagerd" hooked me up with info, but I still would like some sort of preset radio buttons either floating above all windows (when desired) or along the top of the menu bar. Its a pain having to open the iTunes window/navigate to station/ click on next station/ close window, reopen the window I was working with. I change stations often due to songs I don’t like or endless "rebuffring".

    My second thought was to find an appleScript that might utilize the function keys on the keyboard for the radio presets; I have been unsuccessful so far searching the web. Does anyone know of such a script?

    Thanks

    might need to but I dont want to re invent a wheel, plus I dont have time to learn advanced applescript no matter how easy it is at the moment considering I am up to my eyeballs learning php, xml and mySql intergration with flash

    P.S. I just gave applescript a go thinking it would be as easy as RECORD/press function key/bring itunes to the front/click radio station/STOP but its not that easy.
