    Yep, I agree :) what is more, Real Player doesn't work on my computer :) I use iTunes - no problems! When I try to listen to BBC on-line, it asks me to use Real Player, which doesn't work... :( What to do?

    I've found a reply on their site...

    "Can I listen live to BBC Radio stations using iTunes?

    We have no plans at present to use iTunes to distribute our live radio streams. You can listen live to any of the BBC’s stations by using the BBC iPlayer. All stations are available in Real Media format, and some are also available in Windows Media Audio format.

    However, you can subscribe to and download BBC podcasts using iTunes. All audio podcasts from the BBC are in the mp3 format, and you can download a wide range of full programmes and best bits from the Podcast Directory within the iTunes Music Store."

    I've loaded BBC podcasts using iTunes and now I may listen to the radio through iTunes!!! :):):):):):):):):):):)

    One more variant to avoid Real Player is this site:
    Choose "Listen live - Win"
