I know iTunes has Radio and it can be streamed wirelessly to my AppleTV connected to my home theatre.

However, if I want some other local radio stations not part of iTunes (e.g. 680 news in Toronto) and would like to stream that wirelessly to my Home Theatre setup, how must I go about it?

Ideas?

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Don't most home theater systems that center around a receiver have the ability to pick up local radio stations over the air? Therefore why the need to run it through your Mac?

You are right however if I am vacationing at my other home for week, that happens to be off limits through the air waves, I can still listen to that on my computer. So then all I need to do is figure out how to stream non-iTunes audio through airport network.
