Avatar 1:07pm woim:

'Higher quality?...this is Fools Paradise !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm DJ Guin:

yeah..if you want quality..go listen to Wolfman Jack or Casey Kasem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Handy Haversack:

Here's the info on the station's help page, @adubato:

Broadband Users

AAC Stream (128 K Stereo): Best sound quality, requires most bandwidth

Recommended players: VLC Player (Mac or PC) | iTunes (Mac or PC) | Winamp (PC only)

MP3 Stream (128 K Stereo): Near-best sound quality, requires most bandwidth

Recommended players: VLC Player (Mac or PC) | iTunes (Mac or PC) | Winamp (PC only)

Pop-up Stream: Good sound quality (128K MP3 Stereo). Must be played inside your web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc) as a pop-up window.
