Music Internet Radio

Well, being bored with what I find on my computer, and not wanting to make my own playlist, I figured I'd strike into the net and find other who have already done it for me! Part of that includes making this thread discussing internet radio stations. Share your favorites!

First off, the obvious mega-sites:

Pandora Radio -- Using a handful of atists or ons you can generate your own radio stations... and save up to 100 of them.

Last.fm -- The music-centered social media site. Not only can you seek out various radio stations and playlists, but it'll generate recommendations for you based on what you like and listen to.

Now, let's get to a couple specific stations that I've found.

BassDrive -- Drum & Bass and Jungle. Very nice to put on in the background when working, or to just generally chill with. Features live DJs.

8bit FM -- Video Game music, the majority of it being 8bit chiptunes, with a few remixes and other tracks thrown in for a little flavor.

I'm a Last.fm guy. Even publishing my own shit there.
Since they brought back streamable tracks after a short period of being a linking service, more or less, they're a good place for independent artists again.
Downside for Last.fm clearly is that you have to pay for the radio if you're not from the US, UK or Germany (free streaming still works, though, yay). but at least the site doesn't block visitors from outside the US like certain other sites and the subscription fee is reasonable. Or so I've heard.

I also sometimes use Grooveshark, despite being one of those dumb eye-candy laden sites. Mostly because you can listen to virtually everything and make playlists on the fly. But I rarely use that site. Because, well, fuck, what idiot thinks eye-candy is a good design choice?

Arrow Classic Rock

Just as it says on the tin. Classic rock, interspersed with some modern rock. Also, occasionally some blues and blues-rock. Is very nice, eh?

The website is in Dutch, but the mediaplayer speaks for itself. It's a big "Play" button. You don't need to be able to read Dutch to work that.
