Firewalls and MP3 Streams

Some firewalls could prevent listening to the MP3 stream directly. The firewall at your job for example, may be configured to deny any inbound traffic not sent on port 80 (which most web traffic use). If this is the case, the listener should contact their network administrator and find out if there is a workaround.

General Help

Most online audio or video problems can be solved by downloading the latest player software.

When I listen to the live stream, the sound skips, cuts out, or buffers. Why?

You may not have a fast enough Internet connection to reliably listen to audio online. Internet Congestion can slow down the delivery of the stream, and may make it difficult for you to connect, or may cause increased buffering. This congestion could occur anywhere between you and the station. We apologize for your inconvenience and suggest you keep trying, or try again later. Try increasing your player’s buffering setting. Local congestion could also cause issues. Local (on your computer) bandwidth is shared between all open applications and the player, so closing applications frees up memory and may reduce buffering. Rebooting your computer often helps as well.
