You can listen to FM radio in Windows Media Center and create presets for your favorite radio stations.
To listen to FM radio in Media Center, you'll need an FM tuner connected to or installed in your computer, and an antenna connected to the tuner to receive a signal. FM tuners are very similar to TV tuners—in fact, many TV tuner cards have an FM tuner built in.
