Truly free on-hold music stream or music files?

Whenever I set out to find free streaming (Bach piano preferred) I end up at paid sites.  Does there exist and actual site where I can have a good assortment of royalty free music that could be used for on-hold?  Alternatively is there a source similar to Pandora from which I could stream a classical or jazz radio station into my IVR on-hold?   Thank you.

I would worry about anything streamed as it could be interrupted and stop working without you knowing.  It could be a pain constantly having to restart the stream.

Personally I found it easier to simply buy 2-3 albums from iTunes and use an iPod.

you can get free radio apps for iPod touch / iPhone that would work as well.

You cant just buy a couple of albums and use them. It doesnt give you the right to use them for music on hold. You would need to buy a PRS license aswell.

The easiest way would probably be to look here - http://opsound.org/genre/classical/
They use the creative commons license so you can use it for music on hold. The popular Asterisk phone system uses a few tracks from that site as it default music on hold.
