Hey all,

OK, I've looked, and looked, and looked, but cannot find a way to do this... can you launch iTunes and have it automatically begin playing a particular radio station? I don't use it to play my WMAs (I use Windows Media Player on my PC for that), but I do use it for the radio... it would be nice to just be able to launch the program and have it start playing right away.

Thanks for any assistance!

If you're on a mac...

If you're using iTunes on a Mac, a little Applescript should do the trick. In iTunes, make a playlist called "Radio" and drag your favorite radio station into it. Using Script Editor, make a script using the following code:

Code:
tell application "iTunes"
	play playlist "Radio"
end tell
Maybe somebody else will find this useful. :p
