The radio stations that come with iTunes are pretty good.

www.pandora.com is quite good if you know the sort of thing you want, but aren't after specific tracks. Your first 10 hours are free.

Really cool :cool: eclectic collection from around the world.

New Sounds - on WNYC - New York City
http://www.wnyc.org/shows/newsounds/episodes/10272005
Telepathically tight and musically adventurous, the members of the Bad Plus test the limits of what an acoustic bass-drums-piano band can do. This time around, their latest release, “Suspicious Activity?” contains mostly originals, with some doses of seriousness, taken with a shot of abandon, a chaser of meditation, some communion with jazz forebearers, and the inevitable cheekiness. On this New Sounds program, we’ll sample from “Suspicious Activity?”, and dig into the new record from the Brad Mehldau Trio. The Trio’s “Day is Done” features more interpretations of tunes you might recognize - a Radiohead tune here, a Beatles song there, Nick Drake songs, and a version of the Burt Bacharach tune “Alfie.” Also, there’s music by Michael Manring, from a new solo CD of works, recorded without overdubs, and containing the oft-requested “Selene.”
Manring's "Selene" and "Orpherius [sp] Wheel" are really good - Album is "Soliloquy". Manring plays a hyperbass - you have to hear to understand it.

Viktor Krauss's "Split Window" from his album "Far from Enough" is interesting.

New Sounds - http://www.wnyc.org/shows/newsounds
Hosted by John Schaefer
Airs daily at 11PM on 93.9 FM

Tune in for the next wave or the most ancient forms of music.

I don't but I'm sure I've had more than 10 hours out of it without it asking me to pay...
