Having Trouble?

Recently, we have had some listeners who for a variety of reasons had trouble using the streams, most notably using Windows Media Player from Internet Explorer. There is a known Microsoft issue with some updates breaking the link between Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player
Typically they can use the following information to listen to KBAQ:

In Windows Media Player:
Make sure you can see the "File" menu item - if not try pressing Ctrl-M
Click on "File" then "Open URL" then paste the following link:
http://riosal-kbaq.wm.llnwd.net/riosal_kbaq

If you are experiencing problem with ITunes or other streaming MP3 Players
then paste the following URL into the box from the menu item: "Advanced" then "Open Audio Stream"
http://riosal.ic.llnwd.net/stream/riosal_kbaq

We regret to say this solution may not work for you. If that's the case, at this time we suggest you listen with a different Media player examples of which are VLC Media Player and WinAmp.
