    Is VLC safe to install? Absolutely. Many of us here use it to watch/listen to audio/visual content. I have no idea if it will work with those radio stations but it's worth a try.

    Yes it does work. In VLC go to 'Open network' in the address spot paste the address for the 'listen live' for the live stream. I did it and it worked fine.
