    It seems to me that the internet radio stations is blocked in the firewall settings. So to unblock it follow the below steps:

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. Type wscui.cpl, and then click OK.
    3. Click Windows Firewall.
    4. In the Windows Firewall dialog box, click the Exceptions tab, and then click Add Program.
    5. In the Add a Program dialog box, either select the program from the list that appears, or click Browse to locate your program.
    6. After you select your program, click OK.
    7. On the Exceptions tab, make sure that the box next to your program is checked, and then click OK.

    Because Windows Firewall with Advanced Security blocks all incoming unsolicited network traffic by default, you need to configure program, port, or system service rules for programs or services that are acting as servers, listeners, or peers. Program, port, and system service rules are managed on an ongoing basis as your server roles or configurations change.
