Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza: How to listen to audio online
Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza:
How to listen to audio online
Free audio players, streaming vs. downloading,
dial-up modems vs. fast connections.
To hear MP3 archives of past shows, or the internet simulcasts of live shows:
"Listen" vs. "Download":
If anything doesn't work, or you need any assistance, please e-mail Ken. CD's of shows are also available.
- Use a Listen link if you want to listen to an archive immediately (i.e. "streaming"). On a slow connection, use a "dial-up" link. On a fast connection (like DSL, cable modem, or a T1 at work), try a "broadband" link first. If it keeps skipping while playing, try a "dial-up" link instead.
- To listen to the high-quality versions even if you have a slow connection, try Downloading a "Hi-fi" MP3 instead of using a Listen link. Your computer will work on downloading the archive to your hard drive, and then later you can listen at your leisure, and not worry about skipping.
- Use a Download link to save the show for later, perhaps to make your own CD.
- If clicking a Download link doesn't immediately bring up a "Save" window, or if it just starts playing:
Click on the Download link with the right-hand mouse button (on a Mac, hold down the mouse button for a couple of seconds, or hold Apple key while clicking mouse button), then choose "Save Target As" (or "Save As") on the menu that appears.
