Amarok has scripts that add new radio stations, but Clementine 
comes to mind as a player with quite a few stations available by 
default. Probably they are shoutcast or icecast streams. Which means 
you can also just use a browser from either of those sites.

There are also a few players listed in the package manager that offer 
these streams.

I don't know where your player went, unfortunately :/
