Why not listen in via local radio - Try the Brazil and Louisiana USA sections via the clickable maps at the always excellent radio portal Live-Radio Net (which only features "real" radio stations, not internet-only):  

From Rio stations include:


JB FM:  Adult contemporary and quite nice in small doses and quite a mixture-e.g. Gilberto Gil, 1970's Al Stewart and the ubiquitous Mariah Carey.  A little more local fayre would improve this station IMHO.
