TuneIn.com? I'm not sure what exactly you're looking for.

Thank you.
WTVN am is not available via tune in, only iheart.
If I knew the URL for WTVN am Radio I could enter that URL under radio with ipeng and then stream WTVN with my SB.
What I was asking is if there is a special app or a special web page to enter the call letters of a specific radio station and finding its URL? I hope Im explaining this ok and I thank you for your response. Michael, I appreciate your hard work for us all on these forums. Thank you.

There's an iHeart plugin. Please search the forum.

In that case, it is even easier than you might have thought ... take a look at the relatively new add-on from bpa

The above is only for iHeart because iHeart does not provide URLs to aggregators such as Tune-in.

The simple iHeart plugin does not handle the Streamtheworld URLs which for a few stations is the only URL possible. To get the STW URL would need some more code

In reply to the OP's question - "how to find an URL" - in reality unless a station offered the info to an aggregator such as Tune-in, finding an URL for each station is different and some are in fact transient - valid for one use or just for a limited time period only - in which case a plugin is essential.

All true.
The good new for OP is that for WTVN (610 WTVN WTVN-AM) in particular - it is available via the iHeartRadio plugin and works fine so no need to search for URL etc in his particular case (of OPs 2nd post).
