Hook up 

Doug at Bogus Gold alerts me that a couple of MOBsters have been asking about archives for Hewitt's show and NARN. I mentioned a few weeks ago my disappointment that KRLA stopped offering 24 hour archives of their Salem shows.

If you listen to our stream, you note that there are no commercials. That's an FCC rule; there is a long-standing battle over the use of the internet to broadcast things put over the air. Commercials are one thing affected by the rules. This might have been the problem for KRLA.

Steve offered me a solution I've been using for a few weeks now and have liked. I now have Replay Radio and tune both Hewitt and our show to be recorded every day. (I have to leave my computer on hibernate or standby and be around a wireless router to make this happen.) It's not freeware, but it's as close to a TiVo for the Internet that I've found. And with it I now have a potential Hewitt/NARN archive. If I could serve it out for free, guys, it'd be yours for the asking. Alas, bandwidth costs money. And a rule of Scholars is we don't beg for bandwidth funds.
