How does our community benefit?   The list could go on and on.  Our children learn about technology, communication, speaking.  Teenagers can jump into the program and run the whole kit and caboodle for awhile if they want to.  What a wonderful, self-image booster that can be!  We learn about local news.  We learn about it faster and with more accuracy.  We learn about events, and we learn about each other.

We need your help for this program to succeed.  This is your community.  This is your radio station.

Stream Fishing: A Guide to Net Radio

April 18, 2002

By CATHERINE GREENMAN
IF you spend most of your time navigating amon hyperactive advertisers or mindless talk-show hosts when you turn on your radio, you will find the variety, and in many cases, the ad-free calm, of Internet radio stations to be a welcome change. Traditional broadcast stations delivered via the Web and sites that offer their own - or your own - playlists.
But whether you are tuned into a live local radio station thousands of miles away or a subscription-based service that lets you play your own favorites, Internet radio stations work by compressing and transmitting audio files to your computer in a process called streaming. Streaming is different from regular downloading in that you can listen to the file as it is being delivered to your computer instead of having to wait until the whole file has been received. To hear streaming audio files, you will need a PC with a sound card, speakers and an audio player like Windows Media Player or RealPlayer. If your PC does not already have an audio player installed, you can one free at many radio sites or at
www.microsoft.com/downloads or www.real.com.

Many conventional broadcast stations simultaneously transmit their programming on their own Web sites. Among the most popular, said MeasureCast, a company that measures streaming audiences on the Web, are Jazz fm (www.jazzfm.com), a London station; two classical stations, WQXR-FM (www.wqxr.com) in New York and KING-FM (www.king.org) in Seattle; and KKDA-FM (www.k104fm.com), an urban adult contemporary station in Dallas.

But there are plenty of Internet-only radio stations with Web sites as well, including Beethoven.com, a classical station; KNAC.COM, which plays rock; and BlueGrass Country (www.bluegrasscountry.org).

Many other sites function as station directories, including Shoutcast (shoutcast.com), Live365 (live365.com), Live-radio.net and RadioTower.com. These sites only allow you to broadcast and Web-only stations, including live and recorded broadcasts, from around the globe. Major portals like Yahoo and MSN have radio links too.

The station links are not always updated, and a station may not always be on the air when you click on it. But the ability to link to a radio-for-peace station in Costa Rica or an Amsterdam station that is tuned into a police scanner will remind you of the mind expanding possibilities of the Web.

For those interested in a specific type of music, sites like Spinner (spinner.com), Musicmatch (www.musicmatch.com), Echo (www.echo.com) and PenguinRadio (www.penguinradio.com) offer their own "stations" in genres like classic rock, pop, hip-hop, classical and blues. Spinner and Musicmatch require that their own players be downloaded; Echo and PenguinRadio immediately start up RealPlayer.

For many listeners, hearing a steady stream of their favorite type of music playing in the background on their computer is all they want or need from Internet radio. But for those who want to have more control over what they listen to, a new crop of subscription services, including Musicmatch's RadioMX, MusicNet and Pressplay, offer a range of ways to design customized radio stations.

For $39.95 a year, RadioMX lets you create stations based on as many as 25 of your favorite artists. RadioMX will then stream songs from those artists and others it thinks you will like based on your choices. (Musicmatch also offers free streaming music, without customization, in many genres.) The site provides reviews of albums of songs you are listening to as well as links to Amazon.com, where you can buy the CD's. Although Musicmatch has acquired the rights to some 100,000 songs from various record companies, all Internet radio
