I listen to streaming audio for various radio stations.
A typical web-link reads
When I select the web-link, my browser launches a pop-up with the title Streamtheworld Live Player -- station ident
I have no idea what is going on behind the scenes, (but I'd love for someone to help me find out.)
I'd really like to have some non-browser application -- either GUI or command-line -- that I can launch to start listening to the respective stream.
My goal is to have a schedule-driven playlist:
- time 1 ==> this station
- time 2 ==> next station
- time N ==> another station
My ultimate goal would be to record the audio in a pod-cast format so that I can listen even if I'm away from my desk.
