It ain't easy!

Go to the site.

Click the link to make the station play. Make sure it opens WMP in a new window, NOT part of the web page. You might need to right click the WMP if it opens as part of the web page and choose play in default player (assuming WMp is your default).

The once in the main WMP window, Click

File -> Add to Media Library -> Add Currently Playing Track.

Then go to the Media Libray section of WMP and scroll down to "Other Media" (below Video, above radio Stations) It should be there under Genre, Unknown.

To check, close the web page. Close WMP.

Restart WMP, go to media Library, scroll down and when you find it click on it. It should start after it has buffered.

BTW. You can Right Click on the word Unkown in the Media Library and rename it. It will stay in Other Media, but you can call it Radio City 96.7
