On Vox: Internet Radio At My Fingertips

I just figured out I can customize my Windows Live sidebar thinger on my work laptop.  At first I thought, woo great, now I have a clock and the current temperature on my desktop (boring!)  But then I browsed through the widgets you can download and discovered this ugly but handy little guy (thanks to Michael for making it):

Oh hai, internet radio at my fingertips!  You can customize your buttons, which I've done for about half of them so far.  This means that I can click around to BAGeL, KEXP, KCRW at will by the click of a button!* 

 

Other than BAGEeL, KCRW and KEXP - oh, and I'm about to add SOMA - what are the other wonderful internet radio stations I need to add?


And does the KEXP stream cut out intermittently for the rest of you like it's doing for me?

*I'm sure there are five more elegant options that I don't know about and that Macs handle this much better than a PC, blah blah blah, but I found this option and it made me happy so don't burst my bubble!  That said, I'm open to suggestions.
