it seems that at the BBC radio player www site, you can only select from 
among the channel choices in their menu which does not include US (NPR) 
programming.  The NPR.org www site only gives the site visitor a choice 
of using real player or Windows Media Player. NPR is not a radio station 
per se. They supply their content to radio stations throughout the U.S.

On the other hand I just discovered that my local radio station which 
carries most of the NPR "feeds" does have an option to receive a .mp3 
stream instead of real audio or windows media player. I tested it with 
the N800 player and it works fine!
