Streaming audio client - can you name it?

There used to be a pretty good streaming audio client, possibly powered by Real.Com but I'm not sure if that's right or not, that had a large selection of streams, stuff like "Funky Holiday" and "The Piano" -- does this ring a bell with anyone? I'm striking out on Google. I thought it was "RadioOne" but that's not it. Any suggestions?

My only guess is rhapsody.

Thanks, but Rhapsody wasn't it -- this was a free streamer, not a subscription service. Whatever the heck it was, it came out a few years ago and the streams were still working as of last fall, but since I can't remember the name of client, I'm striking out trying to find it.

It was called Spinner, but now it's Radio @ Netscape. I loved Spinner but can't vouch for R@N.

Spinner/R&N.....aaaaahhhhh, that's it. Thx for the link. African Music and British Invasion and The Piano, here I come....oh, wow, they even have an all-Doors channel now...

Another good one is Live365. Very wide variety.

I like Live365 as a source for my WinAmp streams; likewise ShoutCast. I don't know of any way to access the Radio @ Netscape streams other than through their client. If I could access their streams over the Web and listen to 'em on WinAmp, that would be far better than having to use their dedicated client, which put all kinds of AOL sneakware on my 'puter.

You can use Live365 with WinAmp? I did not know. Now if only people would stop hosting their streams on ports that are blocked by the old corporate firewall.

Try SpinAmp. I don't know if it puts any bloatware on your computer, though.
