Is there a iPhone (or even better iPad) alarm clock app that will play a radio stream of my choosing to wake me up?

With custom stream I mean the possibility to enter a custom URL to a .pls file, and that pls contains a URL to a mp3.

Something like TimeTurner but with the custom stream support.

TuneIn Radio. I've not looked back since.

It's good, but the iPhone app at least doesn't seem to have an alarm function. – Mike Howard Mar 3 '13 at 13:52

Radio Alarm is a great iPhone app that works well with custom streams (.pls file that points to a MP3) and has a lot of well working alarm features.

Tunemark Radio is a iPad/iPhone app that support custom streams (.pls file that points to a MP3), but isn't really written to work as a alarm clock so has poor alarm features.
