I've started this topic so MusicBee users have one collective place to post their favorite radio station URLs or even links to exported xml station lists.  I personally use MusicBee for streams about 60% of my listening time, and have found it the most well-optioned player to do this by far.

Stream links can be mercurial;  they come and go, change URLs, can be difficult to uncover, and even "exit stage left" permanently.  Hopefully this will be a good spot for users to ask questions and get answers from MusicBee's contingent of radio fans.

So, have at it, share some favorite genre links, help dig-out direct URLs of web-based players, etc.

Note:  When importing stations from a pls/m3u/m3u8 playlist into MusicBee as a MB playlist, stream track metadata (artist/title) will now be shown if the playlist is in #EXTINF:-1 entry format.  The format does not apply to using the Radio Station "New Station" method for entering a direct URL.  Be sure you are using MusicBee 3.3.7232+ .  Stream playlists you had added prior to that version will need to be re-imported for the metadata to show.

For fans of female vocal symphonic metal/goth:  after a long absence, "Wildcat -- Gothique" is back on the air again with a very good quality 192k mp3 stream and full track metadata:

Can anyone suggest some quality Progressive Rock streams?  While my station lists in other genres are growing, this one seems to be shrinking.  No ads, etc.  Thanks for any info.

Happy the website migration went so fast, and what a difference!!  In the process, like we were warned some recent posts were lost, including those in this thread.  Someone--Stardepp??--posted some great German radio URL links to various genres, and Bee-liever also, thanks gents for starting to get the thread off the ground!  PLEASE re-post the info you sent that was lost in the website transition, thanks!  I now do likewise for the Digital Impulse playlist I had put up recently;  these are all 320k MP3 streams with track metadata:

Code
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Ambient Fantasy
http://orion.shoutca.st:8193/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Ambient and Chillout
http://orion.shoutca.st:8994/
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Christmas Channel
http://orion.shoutca.st:8982/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Classical

#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Best Dance '90s
http://orion.shoutca.st:8643/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - House
http://orion.shoutca.st:8986/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Techno
http://orion.shoutca.st:8938/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Global Trance Channel
http://orion.shoutca.st:8704/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Hard Rock & Heavy Metal
http://orion.shoutca.st:8165/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - New Wave '80s
http://orion.shoutca.st:8123/stream
#EXTINF:-1,DI Radio Digital Impulse - Psy Trance
http://orion.shoutca.st:8049/stream

Copy into a text file, rename to a *.m3u extension, and File/Playlists/Import Playlists into MusicBee to try some or all of these.  Or, copy just the URL into the Radio pane's "New Station" context menu from the header.  You cannot use "Import Stations" from that menu as it only supports MB-formatted *.xml lists.

Radio Caprice is a Russian stream network with a whopping 430 stream addresses, each one dedicated to a specific (sometimes "overboard" specific!) music genre.  The streams are ad-free, have full track metadata, and are all 96k variable AAC+v2 format.  While not HQ, they are surprisingly good sounding and certainly suffice for the curious user who wants to try out a new genre and/or get some artist/title leads to follow up on elsewhere.  The website is in Russian, but a category listing titled in English is here: http://radcap.ru/index-db.html .

Luckily, a helpful chap has composed a playlist (m3u8) of all the station links complete with genres.  It was posted on the public AIMP player forum by "Danfocus" on March 11, 2019.  I have uploaded a zipped copy of it to TinyUpload for those who would like to give it a try;  click this link to download: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=09824242552614696855 .

Once imported into MusicBee as a playlist you can of course weed it out to your heart's content.

Man it's LONELY here, surely someone has some favorite radio stations to share?  ANY genre...

There are FLAC streams for sure, but here are three "freaky quality" FLAC streams:

24-bit, 44.1KHz :  Intense Radio (dance/club)  http://secure.live-streams.nl/flac.flac

24-bit, 48kHz:  Riverside Radio (modern mix) https://stream.and-stuff.nl:8443/live-riverside-flac

16-bit, 96kHz:  JB Radio-2 (alternative) http://199.189.87.9:10999/flac

Lots of views, not a lot of sharing..  Please, feel free to share the stations YOU like best, of ANY genre/language/location!

Here's an "odd" one, I'm not into dance music, but this stream calls itself "Double A projects Stereo Tool processing output", says the audio input is FLAC/DTS, has an Opus extension, but is actually sending 320kbs AAC+.  OK, it SOUNDS good anyway: http://nebula.shoutca.st:8751/aac320.opus .  Doesn't seem to be on 24/7.

Hi sveakul and thanks for all your offerings and suggestions.
We have been listening to station "Groovy Reflections Radio"

http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=1786527

Lots of oldies and goodies from 60's and 70's, UK / USA genres, nice clear sound, 320kbs MP3's.
All tracks tagged so simple Theatre Modes view work well. Small gaps between tracks!
24/7 streaming, Almost no adverts.

Freddy

Punk from mostly Swedish bands; an Opus stream that thankfully includes track metadata (often absent in that format's streams).  Not HQ but where else could you hear this stuff:
