Bandwidth Considerations

For the best online listening experience the faster your connection to the Internet the better. If you use DSL, a cable modem or other high speed Internet connection you should have no problems listening to the radio shows online. If you use a dialup modem and your connection speed is less than 42kbps you may experience sound "choppiness" as your connection can not stream the show fast enough for you to listen and will stop periodically to "catch up". If this is your problem you can always download the show in full to your computer and then listen to the show from your computer.
