Explaination on how to add Internet Radio Stations
I wanted to start this thread, as it wasn't too intuitive on how exactly to add internet radio stations -- especially if you aren't too mod/internet savy. Here are the steps:

1. Locate your game directory -- if you are running Win 7 - 64 bit, should be something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Beat Hazard

2. There are two radio files -- to add a radio station, you need to select radio2.txt

3. There is a sample on how to do it located in the file:
; for example - here is a Classical Radio station
http://www.sky.fm/mp3/classical.pls

Notice how the first line contains ; This will simply allow you to add comments to remember what radio station you picked. The second line is the actual station where the music streams from.

4. You can go to www.shoutcast.com for a great listing of thousands of internet stations as suggested by Beat Hazzard.

5. When you visit shoutcast, you simply right click on the blue arrow to the left of the radio station and select 'copy shortcut'. Then you paste the text into your data file 'radio2.txt'. For instance, if you wanted Radio Santa Claus, your address would be:
http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=96970

6. When you go back into game, you will see the download address indicated above, but as soon as you click over it and pause for a moment, it will convert the web address into the name of the station automatically and start playing the music.

7. You are done adding your first internet radio station! There are thousands to chose from, depending on your tastes. Enjoy!

Thanks for the explaination. One question though, can we play the game while listening to radio talk shows?

Yes -- you can play the game while listening to talk shows, news broadcasts, comedy shows, etc. As long as streams online in a compatible format, you can listen to it and play the game! It's great!
