mplayer (and other media players too) can play most Windows Media files. there is a w32codecs pack available from mplayerhq.hu (and others i'm sure) which mplayer can use to interpret the stream. once that app is working you either *may* be able to play it via the mplayerplug-in app or alternatively view the source code for the page you want and find the link to the media. copy it and run it directly with mplayer.
I would contact the stations and tell them you are sorry to stop listening, but that's what you will have to do unless they produce a Linux compatible feed. There are always other stations with a similar format.
