So don’t forget to listen to Sangam and other fine programs on KFAI (www.kfai.org) – commercial free and with audio archives (2-week span) categorized by program. The archives will be available again beginning in April.
Different stations use different players. You have to have one of the following (freely downloaded) players: WinAmp, Real Player, or Windows Media Player. WinAmp will generally play most stations but don’t be surprised if you end up needing all three.
Offers four channels:
