    I tried this free site out and it works pretty good for your favorite internet radio streams. You need a PC though and it must be connected to the internet at all times. But I have a PC here at work that always stays connected so I downloaded it, it did its automatic configuration and off I was. I found some internet radio stations that I like from shoutcast and then under my radio favorites at orb I plugged in the url's. When I went to and signed in (on my iphone), my streams were there (also all the streams my computer automatically detected when I installed searches your computer). I was on an EDGE connection and it played the 128kbps streams no problem (the website detects your internet speed). It loaded up quicktime and had a four hour stream (what is actually playing at the time/I checked it on my computer). I didnt listen to the whole 4 hours I guess it might stop then, but that's a long time anyways. Anyways for now, it's a nice way to listen to your stations and that is what I've been looking for. You have to have a PC and it has to be running (the downsides). You can also use the site to watch your video and regular music off your computer, but I don't need it for that. I buy my videos from itunes store and music, but I like the variety of internet radio from time to time. I tried that jailbreak program called iRadio, but it crashed a lot and only had ambient music streams. Until something comes out that's better and works, this seems to work for me. Hopefully someone will write a program for it, I would if I knew how. If anyone knows of any other means to listen to internet radio I'd like to know. Thanks.

    stream radio to iphone

    if you're still looking, ooTunes is like orb, but runs on mac and linux too, and doesn't require a jailbreak to listen. It streams most radio stations as well.
