While searching for a song I heard on a local radio station the other day on their website, I realized that iTunes does internet radio streaming too. Is there a way to add a local radio station to the streaming list in iTunes? The local station streams live radio via their website... so is there a way to point iTunes to that particular site and have it pull the stream down? Or any other way to accomplish this would be great as well.

Depends on how that station streams it's content.If it uses WMA or other Windows codecs iTunes won't play it.I believe.

Go to the website and copy the link for the stream then drag it into iTunes.
For example go to http://www.hober.com

Hober streams in mp3 format and it has a link.Copy that link then in iTunes click on advanced>open stream.

I see that link on hober.com, and I got that to work. Unfortunately, the site Im trying to get to work isnt working quite as easily. Heres the site, maybe you know something Im just missing:

That's a typical WMA media player window.It's designed that way to keep people from copying the link.


Install flip4mac and you can listen to it stream but I'm afraid it won't work in iTunes.
