The $40 yearly fee, though, allows you to record webcasted shows and move them to a digital music player.
Sadly, they only have seven mainstream country stations thus far. But, since one of them is an A&O client (CHAT), the service caught my eye.
Not surprisingly, they have ten times as many alt.country and classic country ones (if a tree falls in the forest and no one is listening, is it making any sound?).
