You can hear the FLAC stream in a compatible browser here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/taster/projects/radio-3-concert-sound2.
You have to click 'play', but I don't know how to get at the URL. And I don't know if an FS-based internet radio will be able to play this experimental format in a stream. Yes, it can play FLAC from a medium, but delivered in an MPEG-DASH stream?

EDIT: there are a few URLs to try in this forum: https://www.computeraudiophile.com/forums/topic/31462-bbc-radio-3-testing-lossless-flac-streaming/

EDIT EDIT: I tried a couple of URLs near the end of that thread, but they don't work.
