KQED works just fine for me both with and without my Airport Express.
I’ll be damned, KQED isn’t working now. Very odd.
Bitrate’s not the issue… WNYC and a host of other stations with lower bitrates than KQED broadcast fine through the AirTunes speakers. Incidentally, I was not suggesting a conspiracy theory or anything like that… it might be that KQED did not want its signal “broadcast” in any way, and required Apple to somehow code out the ability to stream it?
A mystery indeed!
Great show! Thanks for playing the tune I sent in.
On changing the opener music: I think it is cool to have a change of opener. I think the opener on Feb 14th and 16th was great – an evolution of the original – and a refreshing change. I’m not so keen on changing it twice a week (which is what you would get if you used a different one on Friday and then reverted back on Mondays). I think I appreciate the continuity from one show to the next – you know what show you’re about to listen – but I also appreciate a refresh once in a while, so it doesn’t get stale.
Great show as always.
I am pissed at the Apple announcement today. I bought my iPod Photo back in November and now the store is selling the same product for $220 CDN less!
Maybe Apple should begin to “Think Different!”
