How to Listen
Computer wiz-kids may understand the table above, but the rest of us need a little more help. To listen to Internet radio, you need to have software that will “tune” into the stream and let you hear it through your computer speakers. Many new computers come with the needed software, but here is a list of free software that we recommend you try out and see which works best for you:
- FooBar 2000
- Windows Media Player
- iTunes (likely already installed)
