Right-clicking on XMMS there is a menu entry: "Play Location". The radio
station you reference is a *.pls and can be opened directly from within
the web browser by right-clicking on the link and selecting "Open With"
or by saving the *.pls to hard disk and then opening from there or from
within XMMS: right-click menu entry "Play File/Directory". And if you go
into XMMS preferences under "Audio I/O Plugins" under the input plugin:
"MPEG Layer 1/2/3 Player 1.2.8 [libmpg123.so]" you can configure it to
save your streams to disk. ;-)
