Which is it? So far it looks like the BBC Radio widget sounds the best to me, but it does seem to be very buggy.

I'm looking for streaming internet radio - not something that requires one to create a playlist and then listen to it. Something where a RJ has already made a playlist and is playing them at >128KBit quality.

Thanks! :)

PandaBar - Pandora is nice it just costs $$.
I haven't used Pandora but it is only because I was told it was a place where one has to make a playlist and then listen as opposed to like a true radio station. Was I under the wrong impression?

And also, I'm guessing Pandora doesn't work outside the USA?

You're right it's not a true radio station and yeah not outside the US.

I seen app 'Radio Recorder' at Mac App Store. It has ugly design and description (and, damn, it's overpriced), but it seems to be able to record songs from radio, and has a lot of predefined stations.

Also, why not to use iTunes to listen to radio? It has a lot of predefined stations as well.

I tried Pandora, LastFM & Radium but ended up with SnowTape which i think is the best one, it can both stream & record and has a really nice clean interface.

Highly recommended! :cool:

Snowtape.
But I think it does not update often, I hope it will be supported for the future.
