Specialty Show Player Technical Difficulties

Hey folks,

The audio players on the specialty show pages are currently in error. If you go to one, you’ll see the error

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

We’re working on a fix, but, in the mean time, you can still listen to the shows by clicking the “the last show” and “the previous show” links. Like so:

Audio player error

This downloads the direct link to the stream. If you don’t know which one to pick, go ahead and choose ‘128kbps’ (it’s higher quality). To play them, use an audio player application, such as VLC, or iTunes.

WREK Online Android App

If you’ve got an Android device and you want to listen to WREK Radio, you’re in luck: check out John Selbie’s WREK Online application for Android devices. In it, you can listen to the on-air stream and archived recordings of specialty shows. Give it a go.
