I was pointed to AudioFeast as a similar Web utility to what I'm trying to create with RadioWave. It has downloadable radio channels including music and specialty news channels. There are eight free "basic" channels and then additional ones that seem reasonably priced. Their What You'll Hear page lists the major categories and shows, with everything they offer listed in their Audio Library.

I suspect that most of the content is simply redistributed from the source either by contract or by some sort of fair use. For example, NPR offers access to archives of many shows such as Fresh Air or The Motley Fool. AudioFeast simply rips them and provides them as downloads instead of streams. Much of the streaming content out their is open for anyone to grab.
