iTunes + Radio

Does anyone know how to get radio stations, such as radio 1 and XFM, set up in iTunes? Is it possible?

The podcasts and "listen again" things on the BBC just work, I think. They only broadcast streaming in RealAudio and Windows Media, though, neither of which iTunes supports, so that's a no-go.

As for XFM I've no idea what format their stream is since it seems to only be available through the flash thing on their site.

Yeah, I wish there was a thing for that in iTunes. I read some link with loads of them though, apparently they shift around the link a lot :S

I think iTunes can understand plain MP3 streams over HTTP (what Shoutcast does) but that's less widely used commercially.
