currently I use Winamp, but I am looking for an alternative with a less clutteres interface. Winamp is currently having far too much functions for a normal user. I am just looing for a simple program.  :Thmbsup:

I haven't tried a lot of players, just WinAmp and SpiderPlayer.  But the latter quickly became my favorite.  It provides access to the thousands of Internet radio stations from Shoutcast and Icecast, and you can add other stations quite easily.  There's both a shareware and a freeware version.  

Earlier this year (April 2009), there was a very positive review of SpiderPlayer from the Neat Net Tricks software review panel.

Screamer Radio is perfect for me. I switched from Winamp's MP3Streamer to it. Cool .  :up:

I use foobar2000 (I also use it to clean the house and pet cats, but that's another story ;D). Pretty much all the major audio players can handle streaming, including those with a less busy interface, like XMPlay, VUPlayer or AIMP.

I use Quintessential Player for Y E A R S now, must say for me it is the best by far! I also tried Winamp, Foobar & co. but QCD beats them all  :)

Hope this helps...

I also have my own Radio-Site, I hope you'll check it out & let me know how do you like it, OK?

I prefer Jango.  It lets me build a station with only the artists I want to hear.  I can also select individual songs I never want to hear, songs I want to hear sometimes, and those I want to hear a lot.

I like radio 365 very good if you like original country music from most countries.

Also caters for most other music as well

Thanks for recommending RadioSure.  I am amazed it has 12,000 radio stations.

I tried Winamp. It's really good, but I agree too much for my simple needs. I use Screamer and WMP.

Used to only use Screamer, but settled on Spider Player Pro awhile back. Radiosure's been getting some buzz lately, but I haven't gotten around to trying it out. SPP's working very well, so I'm not likely to change unless Radiosure has significantly better reproduction abilities.

RarmaRadio (shareware) is probably the best program for those that are passionate about internet radio (it offers the possibility to schedule recordings).

RadioSure (freeware) is the best for casual listeners like myself, because it's easy to use and has enough radio stations included to suit all the tastes.

RadioSure ...it has 12,000 radio stations.
Yes, I think that would be enough for me.
