HI, I get the same problems, but all you need to do is when the script error occurs, click, yes or continue and you will get your radio stations to work fine, i think there is a bug in the WMA some where

I had the same trouble at one time. I wanted to listen to the BBC radio 6 and I only had WMP 9 installed. I installed the free version of Real One Player and use this to play all the radio stations.

I get access denied on the BBC radio player with WMP 9

Try disabling your firewall, that works for me.

Have you enabled all the audio/video/DVD file types from Tools>Options>File Type tab?

The BBC website uses either its own player or RealOne if you have problems with its own - Real used to be the default.

You may need to configure/permit your firewall (I use ZA) to allow Internet Explorer to access the Internet, which will also allow the streaming of audio or video into your system.

Have you also checked IE's Security and Privacy settings?
