Unlikely.

The SB2 can only play feeds in specific formats (currently only mp3).

The BBC feeds are in RealPlayer format.

So, until the SB2 can decode RealPlayer streams and/or the BBC start
streaming in MP3 format it will not be possible to play BCC streams
without some sort of helper/conversion function running locally, e.g.
AlienBBC.

Not as it stands at the moment, the squeezenetwork only supports mp3
audio streams.
The BBC listen again audio is in Real format.

For the squeezenetwork to support this either :

a) BBC changes over to mp3 streams (Unlikely)
b) Squeezenetwork supports Real audio (Possible, but no hints about
when slimdevices might do this.)

It's not all bad though, the BBC has started trials of podcasts in mp3
format, supporting of this is easier to do,

I posted an enhancement request for this the other day:
