Accessing Internet Radio Stations from iTunes
iTunes is often associated with the iPod music player. Over 220 million iPod players have been sold, but it is likely that over twice that many copies of the iTunes software have been downloaded. Each one of these provides an opportunity to access all the music available via Internet radio stations.
On the left hand side of the iTunes screen, select the Radio option from the list of music sources.
In the main screen, you will see a list of music genres to choose from.
Click on your chosen genre and you will see a list of stations to choose from. Each station lists the bit rate used for the audio stream. The higher the bit rate, the better the audio quality
If you don't see your favorite radio station, then iTunes offers an easy route to adding your favorite radio station. From the Advanced menu, choose Open stream and type in the URL of the internet radio stream directly. ITunes will add the stream to your library. However, when I tried this with some of my favorite radio stations, iTunes struggled to pick up the audio stream, as opposed to the default channels, which loaded quickly and easily.
