    All,

    I purchased PTD last night because I would like to listen to internet audio streams that are blocked by our web police. I love talk radio (Conservative and Liberal). I want to listen to KRLA870 and WBLS (R&B Classic Soul). Both of these use WMP if you listen from you desktop. I tried to add these two URL's in pocket tunes and no success:

    http://www2.krla870.com/tuner/launch.asp?id=krla
    http://64.71.131.106/wbls

    Can someone tell me how I can listen to these or find another source for KRLA and WBLS.

    PocketTunes supports Shoutcast streams only.

    Check out www.shoutcast.com or:
    http://mobile.treobits.com/index.php?ind=shoutcast from your phone

    to see if those stations or comparable ones have what you want.

    I know Pocket Tunes has WMA support so I figured I would be able to listen to the streams.

    I don't know about those two stations, but there are tons of stations that stream MP3, or other formats, which work great with pocket tunes delux. I've had some success with windows media by opening up the stream on my desktop, saving it as a playlist, open the playlist in notepad, and using the url listed there.

    A good resource for you is: http://www.live-radio.net/info.shtml You can search by genre, area, name, stream type, etc. It took a little work, but I located all of the talk shows I was looking for.... and I think I have some of the same web/bandwidth police working here, btw! I'm listenting to O'Reilly as I type this.

    There are about 4 other threads here where people have posted different shows and thier links. Do a discussion group search on "pocket tunes talk".

    Hope this helps.

    If there are certain shows you want to get, look to see if they have a website and use their contact me buttons to ask what shoutcast station would carry them and when they play!

    Someone before gave this suggestion...setup your own shoutcast station (keep it private somehow) and feed your radio station to your shoutcast station then you can pick it up via ptunes.
