Stream Dance via Ubuntu

These are some of my favorite Internet radio stations that I used to access via iTunes. And this setup is way easier to use.

I performed the following in Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) x64 to install Radio Tray:

sudo apt-get install radiotray gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly

If you’re using Unity like me, be sure to select ‘app indicator‘ when Radio Tray asks.

Radio Tray >> Preferences >> Configure Radios…

Add the following streaming URLs:

One of the obvious benefits of streaming using Radio Tray is it will show you the song that is playing which is great for looking up an artist later. It also uses, like, 1000x less resources than iTunes.
