  • Recently played list
  • Icons for local stations
  • Visit homepage of local channel with right click
  • Station info box

Rhythmbox Radio Browser has been recently packed and uploaded to Ubuntu Lucid repositories (so to install it in Lucid, simply: sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-radio-browser). The Lucid .deb also works for Karmic (might work on older Ubuntu versions too), so you can download the .deb from HERE (look to the right, under "Builds").
