At the club today, our local industry insider (whose name, unfortunately, I did not catch) announced that a new station started broadcasting: 91.8 The Fan. Although the site was attractively designed, finding their stream was a chore (I only saw a Flash applet), so I hopped on their IRC channel. Sandgolem himself linked me the location of their .pls: radio.918thefan.com:8000/listen.pls. Other friendly chatters gave me a link to their forum thread, which referred to pspradio.co.uk. This player addresses essentially all of my previous issues, so I'm quite happy.
