What do you mean "real internet radio"? iTunes has some awesome stations.

yeah i know you are totally right. the real reason was a bit longer to type... and i didn't really want to go into so much details but here goes...

i've got a load of apps open on my powerbook and it's running a tad slow even though i have a gig of ram. i had this bright idea that i could stream somafm through VLC and hook it up to my airport express so i could close itunes down and help speed things up a little. i know itunes is not a massive app but i would assume that it uses up more resources than VLC. all the other apps i need open to complete the work i'm doing.

i guess not only am i a cheap skate i'm lazy at typing too!

LOL, good enough. Was just wondering because I used to run Winamp on my PC and I absolutely loved the Digitally Imported internet radio station as well as Groove Salad. I was thrilled to see them both available thru iTunes.
