Sounds good at 96 kbps, the old low bandwidth stream used to be something like 32 or 40.

I tried various computer tricks, but still no luck.... :cry:

Same here and I am ticked! I definitely recall hearing JB saying on air when RM went on Sirius, he would promise to always keep it free online! Can we count on his word or has his $$$managers overruled him?

it is working for me here at work and has been on since 8:30, EST with no issues. Some of my other coworkers are listening and it is playing for them as well. Best suggestion is to keep trying...sorry I can't offer any other pearls of wisdom!!

I can't get the url to work in either player. I paste the url in and both say it either timed out or can't connect. I really miss my Thursday morning concerts at the office.

Just go to The Beach House in Old Mandeville, LA - its ALWAYS on. One can not get away from it if there. I was there for 5 minutes today to get a box turtle and heard that very, uh, well, let's just say it's not in key - live version of We Are The People. It was nerve racking.

I get an error message that causes my Explorer window to close when I try Flash. Very annoying.
