Amen. Hard to find anything worth listening to these days, npr is a
broadcasting breath of fresh air wether you agree with the slant or not,
I've gone so far as to build a part 15 transmitter so I can listen to
streaming internet stations on my old radios. www.live365.com has the
Jack Benny show streaming, what a hoot. Also radio.grassyhill.com is a
folk music non-profit in Connecticut that plays a lot of local
recordings along with more familiar acoustic fare. I also run solo cello
music from a cd, sounds great on the old sets.
In case anyone is interested this transmitter is excellent and easy to
It actually sounds good and gets around the house quite well. I built
the 'lil 7 transmitter earlier and was not happy with it, may have been
my fault but I didnt take the time to dig into it.
