Here's what I do.

First I create a directory called "Radio."

Then I go to either Shoutcast or a radio station website (like for stations 
KBAQ in Phoenix or KXPR in Sacramento) and save the pls file.  I then rename 
the pls file to something that I can recognize such as:  kbaq.pls, kxpr.pls, 
wnyc.pls, russia.pls.  So I don't deal with the long URL's.

When I want to play I do the following.  I click on the sixth and last button 
on the bottom left hand corner of the XMMS player.  That opens a box that 
lists directories.  I then navigate to Radio and all of my pls files are 
listed.  I then select a file to play that station's music.  

But note that I only navigate to Radio once.  That's because the next time I 
click on the sixth button, the box will automatically take me to the Radio 
directory.  So if I don't like what one station is playing I can quickly 
switch to another station.
