    Howard Stern streams are all over the net....
    All seem to be either shoutcast or flash.

    http://www.howardstern.com.tw/

    Is there any chance that this link is "listenable" now or in the future on iPhone?

    If not, how difficult is it to get the site "iphone" compatible? Any tips I can forward to the webmaster of the site to help him turn it into iPhone friendly streaming?

    Thanks!

    How would we know let alone care...
    Perhaps dropping an email to the webmaster of said site would net you a faster more accurate answer?
    Depending on the web masters skill set and what he wants you to experience on the iPhone i'd say down right easy to unimaginably difficult.
    Check the app store for a Serious satellite app, seems there was some banter about that at one time or another.

    Thanks for the brilliant reply.
    The question I had is that is shoutcast or audio streams something that is difficult to port over to the iPhone platform, or does anyone know if someone is working on an app to play these streams since Apple stubbornly refuses to support them?

    Here's a native Sirius app currently under development:

    Not sure if this is the kind of thing you're looking for since you seem to have linked to pirated Stern broadcasts.
