    is it a local FM station?

    if so all you need is a receiver and you can purchase some tv tuners with FM receivers... no sure off the top of my head if there are dedicated FM receivers by themselves...

    Haven't they got an online stream?

    You can get a TV card with FM capabilities, which is quite expensive, or you can get dedicated radio tuners which usually connect through USB, which is again, quite expensive. Well they're not really expensive, just not worth the money if you see what I mean :D
