You can also use iTunes to play the stream. Go to Advanced > Open Audio Stream... and paste the URL.

where is "media?" Sorry, I'm a brand new Mac user; just made the switch from using a PC :-) – Michael Andresen Jan 4 '10 at 22:12
Media refers to one of the top level menus you should find in the menu bar when VLC is running. On a mac it may just be the VLC menu, sorry I don't have access to Mac right now to verify, but I'm pretty sure that's the menu structure. – heavyd Jan 4 '10 at 22:24
