Real Audio This is probably the fastest and easiest way for you to listen. Just click the audio link, wait a second or two, and the audio will start playing. If you are on a dial-up connection, this is the way to go. You probably already have the player for RealAudio, but if you don't you can download it by clicking here. Look for the free player. After you download the player, make sure you install it before trying to listen to the radio program. Downloading does not automatically install the software. You must run the program you downloaded to complete the setup.

If you have immediate questions or are having trouble listening to program, please email or call (518) 465-5233 ext. 169.
