Helium - Kaushik is talking about a software player. Not a physical one.

I've been using Total Recorder to listen to and record radio for years. It is good, but it is not free, and its drivers can cause problems. I'll certainly take a look at Radio Master.

I think that many of the media players will play from a URL, making them into radio players. Anyway, I'm interested to see what radio master has to offer; thanks for the recommendation.

as thevortex said.. its a software only player , but there are fully hardware internet radios as u might be knowing
like

Aluratek AIRMM01 ,
Coby Ir850 and Logitech Squeezebox Radio

All these run without PC and give u access to thousands of stations all for free

Warning

Not 100% sure that this was the culprit, but fairly sure that installing this led to various unwanted "ebay" (I did not click on them) icons on menus and desktops, and a very unwanted Forex pop-under when starting Firefox.

I guess I'm lucky, first that I never before got anything unwanted from downloaded software, and second, this thing doesn't seem (fingers crossed) to be too nasty. Have run Spybot S&D and also cleared away cookies etc with ccleaner.

Maybe I'm missing the boat... but why would anyone listen to internet radio considering the low bitrates for the music as well as not having any control over what's being played.

I guess discovering new acts/music could be a consideration but then again how much of the actual music played on radio leads to the discovery of new artists and music... probably in the range of 2-3%. I remember I used to watch MTV Top 20 from US and Europe back in the day and it was the same scene... I'd probably follow up on 2-3% of the new music/musicians they would air.
