Troubleshooting:

Occasionally some people will have trouble playing back these audio streams. If this is you, here are some things to check:

* Check that you are currently connected to the internet.

* Check that you have one of the above players, or a software media player that will play back an mp3 stream, installed.

* Are you at work? There is a good chance that your work's security arrangements (firewalls etc.) are blocking the audio stream. You may have to consult your employer's IT personnel if you are unsure.

* Have you tried pasting the following links into your player? Usually each player has a menu item called "open stream", "open URL", "open network", "open audio stream" or something similar. Find this and try one or both of these links:

http://138.25.219.25:840/2ser128.MP3

or

http://138.25.219.25:840/2ser64.MP3
