Alternatively using the keyboard, hold down the following keys (ignoring the square brackets): [CTRL] [,] [+]. If you don’t see the menu bar at all then you can enable it by holding down the [CTRL] key and pressing B.

4. Click on the General preferences tab if not already displayed. Look for the Internet Radio option in the Sources section. If this isn’t enabled, click the check box next to it.
Click the OK button.
