Back in the 60's I remember listening to Radio Luxembourg, and Radio Caroline. The signals were weak, and would constantly fade out and back in, accompanied by harmonics, but we were happy to listen to the music. Quite why CD quality streams are necessary now I don't know. In my case on dialup, I am denied being able to listen to this music.

No rant intended. Just some observations, along with not wanting to be forced into getting a broadband connection to just listen to music, etc.

It does seem overkill to turn on a computer, tie up one's phone line,
and perhaps pay for bandwidth

Sssshhhhh, geeks like technological overkill!!!!

                              when one can turn on the shortwave and
listen to stations from all over the world.  It was especially
satisfying two years ago to hook my shortwave up to my 486 and pull in
weather faxes for the north atlantic while miles away from a phone line.

What's the best way to make such a connection?
