I use the dreaded Psion Wavefinder which (as long as you can make it work
with your USB chipset) integrates nicely using DABBAR as the stream source.
You then just add each station as a playlist and away you go. Windows only
though.

As a reminder --- The BBC are still trialling a new service, allowing
listeners to download an MP3 each week of the show "In Our Time". You can
get it here:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/history/inourtime/mp3.shtml

While this particular show may not be to everyone's taste (although it can
be pretty interesting), I'd once again encourage everyone to download a copy
and to email the BBC applauding the trial and suggesting that they extend it
to more programmes - there's a comments form on the download page. Mention
the Squeezebox and the proliferation of streaming MP3 devices perhaps.

It *could* possibly lead to a long term solution to listening to the BBC
online without having to transcode other formats...

How do I do that for the BBC stations (without using RealAudio ?) - the DAB
broadcasts are mp3 (or mp2 I think).
