the short answer is no you cannot listen to download streams of music. Not something BB will allow. If you could download the whole stream intact like a long song you could then listen to it tho!

None of the BBs support streaming now. I've heard rumors that the next major OS upgrade will support streaming. You could download a podcast or mp3 to listen or transfer them to your BB from your PC using Media Manager.

There are many factors working against this working properly. Data Transfer rates, BB hardware, OS config, and all lead to so many issues that streaming to the device is not enjoyable. The best I have gotten, on the stations I care to listen to, is 10 to 15 second clips of the stream. Dollar5 and RadioBee are two of the many apps I tried, and seemed to be the closest thing to promising.
