Is there a Linux Radio program?
I do not understand about how radio broadcasts over the internet are done. But i think that realplayer can play radio streams broadcast over the real player network. Also, its possible to log onto certain websites & a window will pop up where you can listen to live or recorded streams.

My question is, is there a standalone program for Linux, where you can tune into various online radio stations - without having a am / fm adapter installed into the computer?
