LISTENING HELP

The Live Stream is 24kbps streaming MP3 on Shoutcast. This stream has a low enough bitrate that it should work fine on dialup connections. If you click "Live Stream" at the top of the page, and you don't start hearing the stream, here are a few things to try:

If you have a newer computer, install the latest version of the MP3 playing software you are using. This will usually fix the problem. On PC, I strongly recommend using the latest Winamp. On Mac, I suggest iTunes. They are both excellent programs, and they are free.

If this doesn't work for you, there is another method that will work with pretty much any program that can play streaming MP3s (ie, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, SoundJam, Audion, etc.): Instead of clicking a listen link directly, right click and "copy shortcut" or "copy link" (on Mac, control click). Then, in the program you're using, find a menu item called "Open Location", "Open Stream", "Open URL", or something similar. Paste the link, and the program should play the desired selection, be it the Live Stream or one of the on-demand MP3 streams.
