Radiotastic v0.93 does work under Snow Leopard. But you will likely need to install RealPlayer before you can listen or record MP3 streams.

Also please note that Radiotastic continued to play and record radio stream when you closed the Widget Panel (f12). This NO LONGER works in Snow Leopard. In other words, Radiotastic works fine as long as the widget panel (F12) is foremost, but stops on returning to regular Mac environment. This makes this widget almost useless in my view.

Also Radiotastic will NOT play SHOUTCAST playlists in this form:

It does N(OT like the ?id=xxxxx ... Pity.

And finally, it looks like Radiotastic has been abandoned by the developer. No update or fixes for a long time. I would avoid.

This is a very nice radio widget, I was happy using RadioTuner before but Radiotastic has the advantage of being able to play all kinds of streams, not just Real Audio, so you can add any station and store them all together.

The other advantage is this allows you to record from the stream, but you do need to pay a shareware fee for that.

I should have added - I think the $15 shareware fee is worth paying, the recording feature is very neat, obviously the quality depends on your connection but the feature is nicely implemented. For me it's worth it to record special music shows and live sets or interviews on my favourite radio stations. You can also add any stream, even those in the BBC radio archive for instance, so you can record a single programme.
