I am getting my 6 year old into our squeezebox, anyone know if there are any radio stations programmed for children that I can acces?

I found a children's program on our Digital radio the other day:
http://www.funradiolive.com/
It broadcasts from the web site in a Microsoft format I think, at least, when I clicked on the radio link using Firefox I got:
"Sorry you must have Interent Explorer to Listen Live" (sic!). Looks like a high quality affair. :-)

To detect the url, use URL Snooper:

(I'm not associated with them). It's free and it works.

There's also a lot of stuff over at BBC7: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7/bigtoe/ some of which will be on AlienBBC

dunno about radio, but my kids (6 and 8) are listening to the family
collection. Favorites are They Might Be Giants, The Ramones, The
Proclaimers, Jonathan Richman, and Tom Waits (recently got tired of
the Bach that we play at bedtime).

We don't particularly care about language, but would have an issue
with them listening to a lot of Ween... it hasn't been an issue yet
though.

Thanks ModelCitizen, Bonze etc. BBC7 is quite good, I found a podcast on BBC7 called Big Toe Clippings that was the kind of thing!
