If, like MacCentral reader Robert Wallace, you’ve enjoyed listening to classical stations on the Internet such as WQXR, New York, and WFMT, Chicago, you’re probably in for a disappointment. The Internet broadcasts have stopped and apparently aren’t returning.
“All of a sudden several months ago most of the stations stopped broadcasting over the Internet,” he told MacCentral. “I wanted to know what precisely is going on so I e-mailed WQXR. They said it was some contractual problem which they thought would be settled by early May. It’s now June, and every station I tried is dead. I use Aladdin Tuner, which provides the URL for the Web pages of these stations. They now lead to completely unrelated sites.”
MacCentral has also asked the stations about why the Internet broadcasts have stopped. But we’ve received no answers. If you know what’s going on,
drop us a line.
