Playing streaming music

Now that I have my sound card working, I was wondering if there is a
port to play streaming music from my favorite college radio station?
The live streams from send me "PLS" files, which
I understand to be WinAmp "playlist" files.  Is there a FreeBSD app
that can play this streaming format?

I installed XMMS, but I'm not really sure if there is a plugin for
these files.

UNIX is user-friendly. It's just a bit picky about who its friends are.
