I use Rhythmbox primarily for radio and I think this is a great idea.
For interface, I suggest two icons in "source" section. One could be
"Radio Favorites" would function the same as "Radio" does now.
Another could be "Radio Tuner", which would be the live browser.

This is how iTunes works, and I find it very intuitive and easy. No
sub-genres needed.
