You have to register with Live365 if you want to avoid the commercials,
but if you don't mind advertising, you can listen all you want for
free. I normally play Live365 stations through iTunes. After I've
launched a station from their site once, it appears in the iTunes
library and can be launched directly from there.

Here's the PLS:

[playlist]
numberofentries=1
File1=http://www.live365.com/play/237745?LID=656-usa&lid=656-
usa&SaneID=24.27.221.131-
1043025597536&AuthType=NORMAL&VisitCount=14&membername=givie&bitrate=128
&now=1079800837100&session=52LHOGUmLJY3Y
Title1=Pacific Islands Radio
Length1=-1
Version=2

Here's the M3U:

http://www.live365.com/play/237745?LID=656-usa&lid=656-
usa&SaneID=24.27.221.131-
1043025597536&AuthType=NORMAL&VisitCount=14&membername=givie&bitrate=128
&now=1079800837100&session=52LHOGUmLJY3Y

I created the PLS by copying the example in the Slimserver docs and
changing the relevant portions (File1 and Title1).

I appreciate your time.
