It has a sound card and I bought ear buds. They opened up the firewalls so we can get to you tube and I listened to some music from there. But that doesn't really work all that well because you have to select a new video every 2 minutes.
I didn't have a chance to try to find a radio station on the computer - is there such a thing?
Do you have to buy access or have an account (we can't usually "enter" or sign into places from work even if we have an account).
Tips? Ideas? Technical explanations?

Thanks

Personally I think this was better suited to the music forum where I originally posted it!

Maybe from a CD-R, but the company doesn't allow personal flash drives.

Pandora. Not only it is like a radio station the goal is to try and turn you onto new music.

If you have a station you listen to in the car or at home, there is a high probability they stream to the web as well.

Yes there are hundreds of inet radio stations, do a Google search.
For example look at this site: http://www.radiorow.com/

The above site lists many radio stations both by location as well as genre.

You can't attach new hardware to your work system but can you play CD's on it?
