Yes, providing the station provides it. Not all stations do. Many provide artist/track details, but very few provide individual album covers in the way last.fm, rhapsody, etc do.

Can you give specific URLs for stations to test.

IIRC many CBSradio stations use Flash to stream. Flash streams can provides audio and images but Touch does not support Flash.

However I thought iPod Touch didn't support Flash so are you using a special App to play these stations ?

Yahoo Radio will not display album art on SB players, only the generic Yahoo icon. It will show artist & song info as text.
I've not tried CBS Radio.
