What online radio do you listen to?
Local radios in my area suck, so I got into the habit of listening to online radio using RealOne Player, WinAmp, Windows Media Player, and even iTunes.
http://www.winamp.com/ has a list of shoutcast stations - I have a bookmarked list and switch around.
My DSL provider gave me a free year of Rhapsody radio service, which I'm enjoying.
ShoutCast.com has a ton of good ones. Most of the Top 10 are very good ranging from 80s to Alternative to Lite Jazz to Classical. You can break down your query by type of station and the search feature allows you to see which stations are playing the Beatles for example.
I always listen to my vast collection of *legal* mp3's. In the past I have tried online radio, but founding annoyingly choppy (on my cable modem) and have not tried it in about two years. Is it still a challenge?
KPLU. Best jazz station in the country. http://www.kplu.org
KEXP out of Seattle. http://www.kexp.org/
KCRW out of Santa Monica, especially for the "Morning Becomes Ecclectic" program. http://www.kcrw.org
The BBC offer a good range of stations.
It's all about http://www.digitallyimported.com.
Dude, patriots.com radio! PFW in progress, Pats playbook with John Rooke, I love it!
I'll second KEXP, it's the most wonderful radio station.

wfmu.org is VERY eclectic, comes out of the NYC area, so it's kind of fun to listen to here in the Pacific Northwest. Program titles range from stuff like "Jewish Moments in the Morning" to "Antique Phonograph Music Program" to "The Pounding System (dub, electronica, beat)", etc, etc......
sorry, should have made it clickable to begin with or all the lazy fingers won't check it out: http://wfmu.org/
And did I mention the show entitled "Give the Drummer Some" tomorrow at 9am (eastern time) described as "The finest in Micronesian doo-wop, Appalachian mambo, Turkish mariachi, pygmy yodeling of Baltimore, Portuguese juju, Cajun gamelan, tuba choirs form Mozambique, Inuit marching bands, Filipino free jazz, Egyptian kabuki theater, and throat singers of the Lower East Side." huh? Gotta give it a listen now don't you? WFMU :)
