The stations are independent organizations that purchase programming
from (and sell it to) NPR.  They are not under central management.  What
works with one won't necessarily work with another.  I can listen to
WGBH and MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) with vlc but it looks like WBEZ
wants you to use their widget (which works for me on Iceweasel).
Possibly you could dig out the URL for the stream and feed it to vlc but
they don't make it easy (and they have nothing I want so I'm not going
to try).
