Boy do I love Internet radio. Other than these forums, it's what is keeping me sane while I'm working. I've discovered a number of stations that I think are great, but I want some more variety. In particular, a good modern jazz station would be welcome. None of that "smooth jazz" crap, though. I'd also like to find a station that plays a better mix of music from the '80s. All I've yet found are Top 40 (ho-hum) or classic rock (ho-hum) or dance (ho-hum) or electronic (ho-hum), and so on. The problem is not necessarily the music played on these stations, it's just that it's way too focused. A mix of genres from the '80s is what I want. Not too much of anything in particular.
As a measure of good faith, I can strongly recommend the following stations:
* Radio Paradise: This is the single best station I've yet found. Easily the most eclectic mix of music, everything from Billy Holiday to Sufjan Stevens to Kronos Quartet. No genre goes untouched, and I've discovered more bands through this station than I can name. The focus is strongly on rock and popular music -- modern, alternative, pop, oldies -- but every once in a while something else gets tossed in. This is the only live, DJ-mixed, commercial-free internet station that I am aware of.
* RadioCrazy: A Swiss site hosting a number of different streams. I like the classical, opera, and jazz/swing streams immensely. Unfortunately, their modern jazz stream has never worked for me.
* Egg Radio: A decent rock/alternative mix, but not as diverse as Radio Paradise. Also tends to play more "heavy" alternative and punk than I want. I stopped listening to it a few months ago because, although it is commercial-free, I got tired of hearing the station ID after what seemed like every song. Tried to go back a few times this week, but the stream hasn't worked for me yet.
* FrobozzRadio: Rock, punk, alternative, electronica. I'd listen to this station more, but I do have a sick desire to listen to popular music, too, and so I find that I tune in to this one for only a few hours every once in a while. But it's definitely an interesting station, though, like with Egg Radio, I'm not as into the heavy or punk scene as the rotation supports.
* the pAved earth: An excellent rock/alternative station. The only problem is if you listen to this station for more than a couple of days, you will have heard their complete rotation. They are promising to do a better job, but I haven't been back to check in some time.

I don't listen to internet radio much, but when I do I just browse through iTunes' radio stations and find something like what I'm listening to... when I want new music to listen to I just go through lists of similar artists and "people also bought..." and expand my library

www.somafm.com It's all great. superior space-ambient music. I credit it with keeping me calm and centered when I'm boiling over in my own head.
WHFB: Dwarfs || WH40k: Imperial Fists, Necrons || WM/H: Trollbloods || BFG: Necrons
When I do its www.di.fm . good selection of different kinds of genres. The sound quality is usually quite poor though and I hate to listen to poor sound quality thus I tend not to listen much to web-radio.

Channel X from 1.fm.
While 1.fm has a large selection of channels, Channel X is the only one I've ever bothered to listen to. They used to be known as Energy Radio, and have no ads, with the exception of about once an hour they'll announce who they are (which I believe is FCC required).
http://www.funkymonkey1049.fm/main.html They are a local radio station but you can listen to them live over the internet. best rock station I have ever listened to.

BBC Radio 2 is my favourite radio station.
The best stuff is the daytime(Bristish time) with the DJs; Ken Bruce, Jeremy Vine(Current affairs), Steve Wright and Chris Evans. But you can choose who to listen to as they are all recorded and uploaded separately using the 'Listen Again' feature.
Not dedicated 80s but alot of eighties gets in.
