Hey Stomp, My wife and I really enjoy this app. It's easy to use and the music stations are excellent. That being said, I don't like my wife poking around in Homebrew with all my apps, DOP-Mii, Wad Manager, Channel Updater, etc... Is there a WiiRadio Channel or forwarder that you know of? I've been searching and found a wad on mediafire but it gave me a file is corrupt, see your wii manual for help message after I installed it. I'm not going to keep messing around with it if nobody knows of a working channel. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'll give a look around for one, you may also want to search for a thread here where a few members posted links to other threads where forwarders were available to download.
Thanks for the help. Let me know if you happen to come across one that works. I've tried a few from links found here and I'm not having any luck with them working properly. I've also tried a few from Youtube links but they wouldn't sync to my wireless network and would eventually give me a dump error.
give a look here Animated Forwarder & Hybrid Channels By pepxl - GBAtemp.net, read the warnings in the post before installing.

Thanks Stomp. I've tried many others and none of them worked but this one works great!
Great app !
My problem : I put on SD a pls file containing about 30 streams but only first one is listed in Wii Radio
Can this be fixed in next version ?
I love the program, very nice work. But am I missing something? No sense in listening to great music if its a low bit rate. Is there any way to filter shoutcast stations by bitrate.
my problem is this program lags on my wii really bad when i pick a music channel i have to wait like 5 min my pointer freezes during this process and then finally it unfreezes and it starts buffering and playing i think there is a bug in this program other media apps like wiimc never laged for me and had no problems and yes this is with the most updated version i downloaded it from the homebrew browser
im having the same prob as lunarweblink is i pick a channel and it takes at least 3 mins to load...i mean once it loads it works beautifully however it takes a very long time to load
