    That listen live stream comes from a page that says:
    "The NPR Program Stream airs recordings of recent NPR programs after they air live on NPR Member stations, and NPR may interrupt the stream's schedule for news events. To always hear live broadcasts, listen to your station, online or on air."

    Can anyone please provide me a valid URLfor NPR??

    The network streams are not public. Affiliates are on a secure network
    with credentials. The public can only access affiliates streams or
    podcasts.

    Get the podcasts, or get an east coast station like WGBH

    What was the last live URL you that was not-local ?
    Ah well, ok then, that might explain it. The last time...dunno, several months I guess?
    I guess I'll just have to stick with a localised stream then

    Yep

    https://www.c-span.org/networks/?channel=radio

    It's the only, non-local, link I could find quickly.

    there used to be some news ones in New York, but I don't know if they are open or geo-locked.

    Sorry but...what does CSPAN have to do with NPR? It's just a completely different radio.

    NPR is a like a federation of local stations. There is common content provided by NPR which the local station can use as they see fit and given US many time zones - when they see fit.

    There is no single broadcast main service. There is a 5 minute news podcast which is updated on the hours. A few years ago there was a better live service but I haven't noticed it for a good while.

    IIRC CSPAN is mainly political station broadcasting a lot of stuff from federal govt proceedings - so CSPAN Radio it is a Washington DC "local" station in terms - if local can be considered to be congress, senate, committees, hearing etc. - it will take NPR content to fill parts of its schedule.

    Right, and that sounds too me like that would be the least NPR-like station I could find. I had a sporadic listen and couldn't hear once any of the usual NPR programs so I guess I'll just go with a local NPR broadcast, like maybe from NY.

    Thanks to all who joined the thread to try and help!

    Forgive me for chiming in late here. I don't usually read the Boom forum, but just happened to stumble across this thread. Technically, NPR is a sort of co-op. It is "owned" by its member stations. (People often assume the opposite, that NPR owns and operates the local stations.) Even though public broadcasting, by definition, is supposed not to be driven by market forces, that distinction ended long ago. Local stations depend on listenership numbers to justify their funding. Therefore, local stations are unwilling to let NPR bypass them and stream directly to listeners.
