Online Radio Fun

In the spirit of old hardware and minimalism I've set up my fave radio stations in a little bash script. Perhaps not the most elegant solution, but it works for me. Especially since I employ Debian Multimedia's mplayer-nogui package.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
# This is my online radio station list/script. Simple and relatively easy
# to use, it gets the job done without an irritating GUI.

This isn't a howto but rather a basic example on setting up "sudo".

The special registers * and + do not function in console vim in Slackware. Vim has been compiled both with -clipboard and -xterm_clipboard. If you enable GPM, you can shift highlight in console vim to middle click past in any x application. You can also Shift+middle click in console vim to past text from any x application. If you don't want to use the Shift modifier, you can sacrifice mouse functionality and type ":set mouse=r" in normal mode. This issue does not affect gvim.
