    I have tried to add stations such as WBBM or WQXR, but they take me to a “Player” instead of an IP address. How can I get that kind of a station into the Playlist you have described???

    Rick: You need to look on the site for a .m3u stream or some other format of stream. You need that direct link. If you can’t find it, maybe try to contact them and ask. Of course, it could be that they just don’t offer it.

    Hi Gary,
    Nice tip. Can you do the same on an iplayer / ipad?

    Bob: I don’t think so. No easy path to do that as the Music app doesn’t seem to support this function of the Mac iTunes app. However you can certainly listen to those streams in Safari, and there are a variety of apps in the iOS App Store that support streaming radio.

    Hi Gary,
    Internet Radio is grayed out in iTunes so I can’t select it. I am running iTunes 12.5.3.17 and MacOS 10.12.1
    Thanks!

    Keith: Can’t think of any reason that it would be unselectable in the checklist. Are you connected to the net?
