RadioTray in Ubuntu

Radiotray is available in the Maverick repos, as explained here, so it's very easy to install.
I, however, found that I needed to additionally install both gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad and gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly to get some radio stations to play.
Nevertheless, it is a very nice, minimal radio player which, importantly, easily plays my favorite stations once I'd been able to track down the urls.
Here they are, although I realize that my preferences will seem decidely dull to anybody under the age of about fifteen.

BBC Radio 4 FM
BBC Radio 4 LW
BBC World Service
