Is it possible to use BB Pearl as a radio to tune into radio stations that broadcast via the web

There is no AM or FM radio tuner built inot your Pearl. You "might" be able to find a webiste that will "stream" music to your pearl

Didn't try last.fm as it requires you to sign up and what not.

But I did come across this site Radio-Locator. You can find whatever radio station you're looking for and then go to their site and listen off the stream..

There's a beta version to stream radio stations to your Blackberry 8100. Do a search here. It's someplace here.

From what I heard, it's ok but it still have some bugs in it.

Keep in mind that the 8100 was never designed to do streaming videos and audios.
