I would like to suggest a slightly different feature:

One should be able to create a "scannable" list of radio stations (or I
guess songs if one really wanted) that is accessed through the player.
It might appear as a new top menu. One would add to it through the add
button or by editing a file on the server. The key new bit would be
that this list is scannable so that clicking one key (right arrow?)
moves to the next station in the list. Perhaps a double click or some
other key would automatically move from one station to the next til you
tell it to stop.

So this ends up being like your friendly tuner.... Scan and search
functions, but just through the list of stations you specified. I guess
there could be a scan/search all stations too...

Could you not have a playlist of radio stations that would achieve this??
