The folks at WinAmp promised it’d be coming, and come it shall: the latest update to the WinAmp update will give you the ability to to tune in to over 44,000 SHOUTcast radio stations once the update goes live. When that’ll happen? There’s no word on that yet, but DownloadSquad – a sister site of NullSoft – has given us a nice preview of what to expect. I’ve included one screen here, but be sure to pop over there for more.

For this alpha build, Nullsoft has focused onSHOUTcast integration. The implementation is still a little rough around the edges, but it works — it worksreally well. You can browse the top stations, and browse by genre or search term. Click a station to listen to it, or push-and-hold to add it to your favourites for easy access in the future. Presumably, if you listen to one station enough, it might be automatically added to your favorites, too. Rounding up the changes, there’s ‘My recent stations’, which is exactly what it sounds like.
