I'm guessing you are referring to the ones under 'Radio'
last.fm might be problematic too
Tho these fall probably fall under the non-free service category (like a website) the referende to them should still probably be cleaned up.

Clearing the iradio plug-in playlist isn't too bad (see patch)

Is this issue about the radio stations serving non-free cultural works, or them (stations) being non-free services? Judging by your comment it looks like the latter. There's been a thread [1] in Assist mailing list with messages from RMS on very similar subject. The first message has a link to his article [2] on that as well.

I'm just trying to understand if there's a real freedom issue here. For example the one interfering with Parabola Social Contract.
