With Banshee 1.8 you can add radio stations to the dedicated panel. The 'Add a station' button gives the possibility to indicate the stream address, a name, a genre and so on.

However those informations seem to be given once and for all, as there is no 'Edit station' option in the contextual menu. So how can I modify the information associated to the saved stations, for example their name?

You are supposed to be able to right click on a station and edit it, but if you are using Banshee 1.8.0 or earlier you are out of luck, there is a bug, once you create a station you can not edit it, here is the bug report.

The problem is now fixed in the latest stable release 1.8.1 as of January 28, 2011, see the release notes.

I have updated Banshee to 1.8.1 and checked, you can now indeed, right click on a radio station entry and edit it.

Banshee 1.8.1 is currently going through the update process in 10.10 and should be provided as an update in the next couple of days.
