Command line or text based radio app.

Hi Anders,

there is something called WhichSTation,
the one and only big problem with it is the maintainance: I'm the author of
whichstation, it's a quite simple cli-driven Bash script; it does uses mplayer
and by entering a number with the numeric pad it will select and play the
radio stream; entering 0 will quit, that's all.

Just put the script itself + the .lst file into /usr/local/bin, be sure
mplayer is already installed, then run: whichstation <ENTER>

I still haven't found any good method to maintain it because of continuously
changes on streaming servers; feel free to give it a try at your own riscs:
there are not really problems with it, except the need for me to find a way
to maintain streaming-urls and to extend the offer to more countries
(currently only BE FR + some other stations.)
