What classical music webcasts do you recommend?

I was a frequent listener to WQXR, but they seem to have suspended their webcast (anyone know why?). I like WCLV, but I can't always get their Ogg stream to work. WKSU is fund-raising this week. Ogg streams are good; top-of-the-hour news is a plus but not required. What do you listen to during the day?

I've some trouble remembering for sure, but this Chilean station Radio Beethoven is supposed to be pretty good.

Good classical webcasts? They seem more difficult than merely classical webcasts. Try (cut'n'paste into winamp)

Hector and France Musiques from Radio France.
Cro 3/Vltava from Czech radio.
P2 Musik and SR Klassiskt from Swedish public service radio (click "Lyssna direkt").

I enjoy CBC Radio Two. (Scroll down; it's on the right after Radio One.)

And BBC Radio 3.

Also, Mike's Radio World has a lovely list of streaming stations classical.

It's not a webcast exactly but it's not far off, and it has an amazing interface to boot.. The Glass Engine. Tis very clever.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. Some of the webcasts were full when I tried them (AskMe has a classical contingent?) but I caught some good prgramming on CBC2 yesterday afternoon.
