How do I listen to these files?

Most likely, when you click on one of the above links, your Web browser will pop up either a player program to listen to the music, or a dialog box so you can decide where to save the downloaded file.  You might need to wait a few moments for your computer to start up the appropriate program. 

If you need more information, the following facts may help.

RealAudio is a streaming format, so you don’t have to wait for the whole thing to download; you can start listening almost at once.  If your computer doesn’t have a player program for this format, we recommend RealPlayer; you can download a free copy from real.com.

MP3 files have a better sound quality than the Real Audio streams; but you will have to download the whole file before you can listen to it.  If your computer doesn’t have a player program for this format, we recommend Winamp; you can download a free copy  from winamp.com.

If you have problems with your browser, you may want to override its usual processing, and force it to save the audio file on your hard drive.  (Then you can work on it later, when you're not tying up the phone line!)  To do this, use the following steps:

  1. Click with the right mouse button on the link for the desired song; this will pop up a small menu. 
  2. Select “Save Link As” (for Netscape or Forefox browsers) or “Save Target As” (for Internet Explorer). 
  3. The browser will display a dialog box that lets you specify the file name and folder location (just as you would when saving a file from a word processor or any other program). 
  4. Click “Save.”  Your browser will download the file without trying to play it or do any other processing.
