You are correct.
I would say there is no service that does not use Flash when used in the browser. I do not believe it possible to stream audio without Flash in our HTML 4 web. HTML 5 has the capability to. We will have to wait on it.
However, it is possible to stream audio through other channels.
Internet radio, for instance. The website gets you hooked up with a file that your media player (totem for instance) uses to stream audio. Once the media player begins to work, the browser can be closed. Of course, the service isn't as slick as Pandora, so lower your expectations a bit.
Try that, and see how it affects performance.
