Similar problem here. I can hear the commercial on all AOL stations, but that is all, no error message. Can hear AOL directly from AOL's homepage, but not from Winamp. When using an URL entry I get error message no syncing.Plays stored files fine. Other radios connect fine (RadioSure)

Have latest Winamp, clean installation, win7 on Lenovo S12

What country are you guys in?

I'm in UK and the only way I can get any AOL Radio streams to play (via Online Services view)
is to click the "Add to your Winamp bookmarks" link on the Station info page,
then play it from the Bookmarks list.
If I just click the links in the AOL Radio online services pages,
then nothing happens (ie. nothing ever gets added to the playlist).

I'm not sure if it's a geo-blocking thing (ie. the streams are US-only), or if it's a bug.
Gonna have to wait until Monday afternoon before I can get a more definite answer...

Hmm, looks like it's some sporadic server issue, eg. a slow api

If I keep trying different streams, I can eventually get one to work,
and then other stations start to work.
But eventually, I'll get the "no load" problem again
so I have to just keep trying until one works again.

Oh, and by the way, you need the Nullsoft Flash Video Decoder to be present (in_flv.dll)
because the AOL Radio streams are in FLV format (AAC or MP3 in FLV container).

I guess there's also a possibility that the problem occurs if the ad server (adsonar.com?) is blocked in your hosts file, or blocked via some ad/script blocker... because the flash ad pre-roll refreshes every 5 tune-ins...

[Edit]

Oops, it was only working because I was on VPN at the time (i.e with a US ip#).
When not connected to VPN, I just get the "geoblocked" message :-(

I have the same problem. I'm in the USA. I have several AOL radio stations bookmarked. If I fire up Winamp by right clicking Winamp Agent and clicking one of the stations in the jumplist, I get the :30 disclaimer about geoblocking. The word "geoblocking" scrolls in the window and after the ad, Winamp stops. Same thing happens if I click on one of the radio bookmarks in the Media Library. However, if I click on AOL Radio under Internet Services and then click on the same radio station, it works.
