Actually you came oh so close. That .pls is a playlist, which is a text file containing the media stream URL (plus two backup streams), viz.,
Choose one and paste it into Firefox to bring up your media player plugin and KLOS plays loud & clear. (Well, that's what happens provided you live in the USA.)
<strong>However, </strong> you are never going to be able to listen to this station via YOURMUZE because the KLOS site denys Holland-based YOURMUZE a stream, citing "Geographic location forbidden". This means it recognises YOURMUZE as being located outside America and KLOS <em><strong>sure don't want no aliens listenin' in!!</strong></em>
So you are out of luck. Totally. :-((
The good news is that there are plenty more stations in the world. Besides, if you are in the USA then can't you simply click on one of those URL's I listed above and listen directly without going through YOURMUZE? It's a relatively low bitrate stream, probably about 28 kbps so you really don't need YOURMUZE.
I'm outside the US and to receive a feed from KLOS to my laptop I need to browse the KLOS site using a US proxy server as an intermediary so that to the KLOS server I <em><strong>appear</strong></em> to be on USA soil so am regarded as a worthy listener.
