To listen to an Internet radio station:

1.
Click Radio Tuner on the Features taskbar.

2.
To listen to a featured, preset, or recently played station, click the arrow to the left of the station’s name (Figure 10.16).

Figure 10.16. Radio Tuner’s left side is divided into three expandable sections: Featured Stations (starter stations chosen by Microsoft), My Stations, and Recently Played Stations. The right side contains genre links and a search feature.


or

To find a radio station, click Find More Stations on the right side (Figure 10.17).

Figure 10.17. You can browse radio stations around the world by genre. Hidden by the expanded drop-down list are two search boxes that let you find stations by keyword (enter a talk-show host’s name, for example) or zip code (U.S. only). Advanced search criteria such as country, language, and call sign also are available.
