I prefer the audacious audio player, which should be included in your operating system. It's easily added if you don't have it, get it from: audacious-media-player.org. It evolved out of the XMMS project. Linux users need to see the how-to further down this page for details on adding MP3 support to Red Hat Linux and its derivatives.

Streaming Internet Radio Stations

Below is a list of some streaming Internet radio stations I have enjoyed or at least found interesting in the past.

This type of list is impossible to fully maintain. Some of these may not work because the stations frequently change their stream URL and even stop streaming audio from time to time.

Please let me know if you find problems in this list, or if you have suggestions for corrections or additions!

Some of these require the RealPlayer software from real.com, but most are MP3 or WMA streams.

Enjoy!

How to Add MP3 support to Red Hat Linux and its Derivatives

Some Linux distributions, prominently Red Hat and therefore CentOS (and other Red Hat clones) and Fedora, distribute a version of xmms with the MP3 libraries disabled. The reason for Red Hat's decision is described at http://www.fedorafaq.org/fc3/#xmms-mp3.

The needed fix to restore MP3 capability are described on that page:

  1. As described on a fedorafaq.org page, add the following as a new file in the directory /etc/yum.repos.d directory. It would make sense to name the new file something like livna.repo. Individual repo (package respository) files are the new way of doing things. An older system may simply have one big /etc/yum.conf file and you would add the below blocks or stanzas to that file.
    [livna-stable]
    name=Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
    baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.stable
    http://livna.cat.pdx.edu/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.stable
    
    [livna-unstable]
    name=Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
    baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.unstable
    http://livna.cat.pdx.edu/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.unstable
    
    [livna-testing]
    name=Livna.org - Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
    baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.testing
    http://livna.cat.pdx.edu/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.testing 
  2. Run this command to download and install the xmms MP3 libraries:
    # yum install xmms-mp3 
  3. You may also want to add MP3 capability to Rhythymbox, Noatun and other multimedia packages by downloading and installing these packages:
    # yum install gstreamer-plugins-mp3 kdemultimedia-extras 
  4. And the lame command for converting WMA, FLAC, and other audio file formats to MP3, as explained on another page of mine.
    # yum install lame 
  5. And finally, the ability to convert MP3 to .WAV to create audio CDs within the K3B CD burner:
    # yum install k3b-mp3 

You can also use the RPM packages available at http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/xmms/
