I'd like to be able to add radio station KRCW. They have streams at

http://krcb.org/listen/listen.html

I've tried launching the WMP version, and putting its properties (http://www.krcb.org/listen/krcb.asx) into my Favorites, but that isn't working.

Try this.

http://www.krcb.org/listen/krcb.pls

I put this in the tune in radio station and it worked straight away.

Then if you are using SC7 you can add it to your favorites but if using SC6.5 then it can be added as a playlist.

Hey Schatzy -- very cool. I see you used their "listen using iTunes & other MP3 players" link. It works, many thanks.

How about these guys: they only offer realAudio or Windows Media links:

http://www.kalw.org/listen.html -- RealAudio or WMP.

Just use the WMA link...

Well -- that's weird. It's the first one that I tried. All I got was the URL to scroll across the front of the SB and no "checking stream," "buffering." Just a scroll and silence. And now it works. I remain puzzled but thankful for the help.

If you just copy and past the link found on the website is shows up like

http://www.kalw.org/media/Streaming Links/kalw_wmestream.asx

You some time must add the %20 manually for the space between the words Streaming Links

Once the %20 is added then it works. I have found this on a few radio stations. Windows sees the space for a space but other applications need the space spelled out in characters.

Thanks, Shatzy -- the first time I tried it, with a cut 'n' paste, I saw that the URL had that %20, which I know means "space". Yet it didn't work. Steve is right -- sinister forces. I'm convinced the SB is haunted.
