About The Station

Since July, 1995 the radio has been tuned by Internet visitors 346,000 times and 475,000 audio samples have been sent to thousands of listeners in 85+ countries. If you want to read about how it works - complete with lots of technical nitty-gritty - I have some notes on the implementation.
