Text RSS

If you'd like to receive content items on your desktop and access them when you choose, RSS is right for you. You'll need an aggregator--a program that pulls the content you've chosen together for you, and displays it. Think of an RSS aggregator as just a web browser for RSS content. RSS aggregators automatically check a series of RSS feeds for new items on an ongoing basis, making it is possible to keep track of changes to multiple websites without needing to tediously read and re-read each of the websites yourself. They detect the additions and present them all together to you in a compact and useful manner. If the title and description of an item are of interest, the link can be used to quickly bring the related web page up for reading.

Selected aggregators:


Once you're signed up, you can choose your feeds and begin accessing them through the aggregator you've selected. If your preferred reader isn't in the list above, just copy the RSS feed's URL and paste it into the RSS reader you use.


Audio RSS: PODCASTING

Need help getting started with podcasting? You'll need to sign up with an aggregator--then, subscribe to our feeds. After that--new additions to the channels will automatically show up in your portable media player (note, you don't HAVE to own an i-Pod to "podcast"--it can be any mp3 player). Here are some helpful steps plus links to setting things up fast and easy:

Step 1: Get the podcasting software, or use a Web-based podcasting service

If you already use Apple's free iTunes software (for Windows or Mac, Version 4.9 or later), just look for the Podcasts section of the iTunes Music Store. The software now supports one-click subscriptions to a growing number of free podcasts, including this station's podcasts.

The first mainstream podcast program still works well, and it's also free. It's called Juice (formerly iPodder), and you can download Windows and Mac versions here .

Another easy way to receive podcasts is to use a Web-based podcasting service like Newsgator , Yahoo! , Odeo , or Podnova . They allow you to play podcasts right from their Web pages, no downloading required.

If you aren't already using one of these services, the drop-down box that says "Subscribe with..." allows you to choose one--simply click on subscribe after selecting your choice of aggregator, and you'll be taken to their site. From there, sign up is quick and free, and you'll be able to immediately subscribe to the feed you've chosen.

Step 2: Choose Your Feeds

The software programs mentioned above include directories of podcasts, and the lists get longer by the day. Two helpful lists for discovering new podcasts are the iTunes Top 100 Podcasts and the Yahoo! Most Popular Podcasts.

Step 3: Subscribe

Using the drop-down box on the station archives page will automatically subscribe you to the feeds we provide. If you're using an aggregator other than the ones in the drop-down box, you can manually paste a podcast feed's URL into most programs and have it create your podcast that way. Audio RSS: PODCASTING
