There are many ways to listen to radio on the web. I'll list a few ways and then give some instructions.

1. Find the station and listen. Many times the station has the call letters in the address. Others have special addresses.
Here is an example of some from Las Vegas:

2. Use any of the media programs available like Windows Media Player, Real Audio, WinAmp, QuickTime, Quicktime alternative, MusicMatchJukebox

The other players listed require downloading and installing. Click here for a discussion on downloading.

If you go to the web site for Windows Media Player you can click on the Internet radio for a guide and listening.

This one discusses streaming radio & the programs needed.
http://www.live-radio.net/streams.shtml and of course the parent site is
http://www.live-radio.net/ and has links to lots of resources and various parts of the world.

3. Use a search engine to look for radio stations by location, genre or other category. Here is a list of places to find radio stations:

http://music.yahoo.com/launchcast/

I got all this from a search on Yahoo. I'm sure a search on any search engine will reveal similar results.

http://www.radio-locator.com/ promises to locate stations anywhere in the world.
Found this one from an Excite search for "radio +Internet". Click Here for tips on searching.

http://www.radiotower.com/ has a list of Internet only stations

http://www.nexus.org/Internet_Radio/ has special stations from various UN agencies. 2006-
Be sure to read the information. Budget cuts have changed their format.

http://www.radiofreeworld.com/ an interesting variety of choices including TV on line. Educational.

http://www.folkscene.com/ another interesting site with links to a good variety of music.

4. Special areas. I like the old radio shows that I grew up listening to in the 40's and 50's.
You can search for "Old Time Radio" and find many that you can listen to in streaming audio or download and listen to anytime.
I found these sites with a large selection:
http://www.radiolovers.com/
http://www.archive.org/details/oldtimeradio
http://www.otrcat.com/ is a commercial site but they do have free downloads.
Look for the link at the bottom. You can download one at a time. They try to sell you a CD.
http://www.oldtimeradiofans.com/
http://www.old-time.com/

Be aware some of these offer free downloads, some charge.

Also many of these sites now offer listening on your smart phone.
