Free is always good, I listen to BBC2 , BBC4 and Classical mostly.
I have a laptop (PC) connected to my amp (Marantz PM6010KI) with an external usb drive for storage, running Vista 32bit and use Foobar for playback controlled by a Nexus 7 tablet.

Are there any free radio programs that will allow me to listen to any or all of the above stations with remote access through my Android tablet?

Can anybody please help me set this up?

I think the concrete solution you search for does not exist. It's something like airplay (or sending the audio to another device), and having the whole thing on your phone/tablet.
In theory, it should be possible to do with UPnP, but the radio application in the phone should be able to tell the upnp player to play what it says (in this case, a remote url), while the app itself manages all the rest of the info. In other words, it's not a remote. It is audio played remotely.

In my Samsung phone, the player app is able to send audio to an upnp player (like the TV, which is connected to the stereo), but i haven't really found a nice way to play online radios. (For that I had to do a cumbersome solution setting an upnp server with the online radio links).
