Hehe. Nope! That is a fallacy! We FRY everything! (Except when we boil it of course)

In short, if it's not fried or boiled, then it's probably curry or a steak and kidney pie

Closed your browser and you could still hear it? Is it possible the song just got stuck in your head?

Firefox on Linux = a win-win.

I asked him if sending through the internet was the way to go, and he said yes. Lots of stations are doing it this way. I assumed he was transmitting MP3 type of format, and asked if quality was a concern. He answered that it actually sounds better now. (i did NOT verify it was MP3, but send wav via internet and see how much bandwidth you'd need and do the math).

This is a an oldies station, and a pretty good one, except they play a lot of unknown oldies IMO. Anyway, so I'm listening after that, and I recognize what seems to be MP3 distortion especially during commercials. It's always bad, some songs are worse than others.

My question is: Is it common or desired to do radio this way? I don't mind MP3, as long as the quality it up there like 128K+

And, you can almost always turn off certain aspects of multimedia inside the browser settings. Look for it.

Neither can I.
I checked on any apps running.

I can only think it streamed to a buffer somehow. I was looking for real player running but didn't see it.
Have a beer on me.

Congratulations. You have been selected to win a free ipod nano!

That ad will eventually cause me to break my computer.
I'm going to sneak in with the flowers and look innocent.
