If you have never listened to Internet Talk Radio you may have a few challenges in getting started. Please read through these troubleshooting hints if you have any trouble.

The first biggest hint is: When you click on our “Play” link, a player is launched and this is a small window that opens. If you have a pop up stopper operating on your computer, you will need to hold down the “Control” button on your keyboard as you click the play button.

Make sure your speaker wire or headset is plugged in. Check your audio volume controls and make sure the mute box isn’t checked. If you don’t have computer speakers – any portable radio headset will work!

Minimum system requirements to listen to internet radio: 90 MHz or faster Intel Pentium processor (or equivalent CPU), Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3 32 MB RAM, 30 MB free space on your hard disk, 16-bit sound card and speakers 65,000-color or better video display card, 28.8Kbps or faster Internet connection and web browser. You will also need to have Macromedia Flash installed.

If you have an older computer or a particularly slow connection, you will find it difficult to listen.
