I used to listen to Live365, but I got tired of hearing the same commercials for Live365 and the CIA recruitment. Now I listen to Pandora.

Chances are, the blocking that is being done is not of stations, but of the streaming protocols themselves (WMA, Real, MP3, etc.). That means it won't matter which station you choose, the network at your workplace is set up to block any and all network traffic in those formats.

Big R Radio has the best selection of '70s music that I have come across online.

I am able to access internet radio @ work. I listen to www.181fm.com -- has a great variety of genre to choose from.

We can't stream at my job, but I just use my mobile phone to stream radio.

I work at a radio cluster. They prefer you do not listen to radio on the internet. Not because it's competition, but simply because streaming slows down all the computers in the office.

Palm Centro. I have an unlimited data plan with Sprint. I think you should be able to stream with almost any mobile smartphone now. You will need to get an unlimited data plan, since streaming uses a lot of data.
