Create a .webloc playlist of streaming radio stations Internet
Here's a neat trick with Safari's webloc/inetloc files.

Let's say you like all these streaming radio stations, but the players they require are all different -- some are Windows Media, some Realplayer, some iTunes, etc. And let's say you want a simple, convenient "play list" that has all these stations in one spot to be launched with a double-click. Here's what you do: go to each station's web site and find the link that you would click to "listen live." Right/control-click and copy the URL to the clipboard (it's usually a .rm or .wmp string). Then, paste it into Safari's URL field. Then drag the URL to a folder. Inside the folder, you'll now find a standalone .webloc file that you can double-click, and it will invoke whatever player it needs. And you can rename it something simple (like the station's call letters).

With iTunes it's even simpler, because you just go to the iTunes station and drag its name from the playlist to your folder.
