Hi Webmaster,

I switched to The Ed Show, I am listening right now, 17:40 GMT.

I almost always listen right after the Stephanie Miller Show.

The error message I get from Realplayer (take it for what it is), is:

A General Error has occurred
http://cast.voxcdn.net:8000/4745-WYD-stream-1

You can't get a lot of the online stations when listening outside of the US, but what I can get are:

WCPT AM
KRXA 540
AM 950 KTNF

I use the MP3 Stream to listen to the Thom Hartmann Show through Realplayer.

By the way, this is after

By the way, this is after using the usual MP3 stream url. You use:

Quote:
http://www.thomhartmann.com/streams/mp3stream.pls

and you get bounced to:

Quote:
http://cast.voxcdn.net:8000/4745-WYD-stream-1

which gets the error message 'file not found', in RealPlayer.

Good argument for why in this

Good argument for why in this global Internet age we need to get rid of time zones and just use UTC (GMT).  Thom would just say the show moves from 5 PM GMT to 8 PM GMT, DST (or BST) notwithstanding but that's another issue that needs to also be punted.  And actually that would probably be said in 24 hour clock time or from 17 hours to 20 hours GMT.   It might take a few years to think in but there would be a market for two faced clocks for awhile. ;)

Roger that .pls means it is a Perl script which contains a playlist of direct streams.  They may contain several streams in the playlist and the player connects to the first one it can connect to.  Thom's may only have one direct stream but they change from time to time.

It only works when the show is live.  It's working fine for me.  I play it with VLC (VideoLan):
