Sometimes you can view the page source and find the underlying stream link.  In this case they are embedding a streaming player from their provider and I could not locate a link as such.

I wish stations would go back the old way of streaming and allow you just the raw link.  I don't want a browser running a streaming application, I have other software and hardware for that.  Alas...

Ya I checked the source redhat but nothing........

Well I did get playerservices.streamtheworld.com/streamid= something but trying that direct doesnt do anything!!

When your connected to the stream Jim what IP address is connected? (Goto netstat and you should see it)
