We use two formats of audio on our website. Windows Media and Real Audio. In order to listen to audio encoded in the Windows Media Format, you must have the Windows Media Player installed on your computer. Most computers that use Windows come from the factory with this player already installed. If you are using a Mac, you will have to download and install the program. It is available for free. Some of our audio is encoded to play on the Real Player. Again, you must have this player installed on your computer. It is free also.

A word about our audio! The quality varies from cut to cut. This is for many reasons. First, the original material may not have been in the best condition. Second, the encoding was state of the art when done. However, technology has progressed to the point where Internet audio is now excellent. Once in awhile, we re-encode the audio to today's higher standards. For the most part, the encoding has been as it originally was encoded. Somewhere down the road, it would be nice if we could re-encode the audio with today's better technology. Until that time, we thought we would leave what we have posted. One way to tell if we upgraded the audio is to see if it's available in both formats. If it is, it's probably an updated version.
