The Radio Station That Is the Internet

"What? This guy's a professional web developer and he's just now catching on to Internet radio?"
Ahem, No. Still, there's more of it now than there was a few years ago. All of New Europe is coming on line, and while most of it is state radio of one form or another, the things that make non-state radio so important, I couldn't undertand, anyway.

There's a 24-hour Hungarian classical station, and this Polish station I'm listening to right now that broadcasts nothing but Ahhhhh, Bach. And no, I'm not going to give you the web address, you'll have to find it for yourself. The Hungarian station seems to have too much traffic, so even the slower broadcast sounds like the soprano is singing through an aluminum tube and takes breathers from time to time. I don't need to have that happen to Johann, so I'm keeping it to myself.

If the Arab countries actually had Internet technology, and if they allowed their people to broadcast, and if I understood Arabic, now that would be interesting. Of course, they don't, but then, there's always MEMRI.

Fortunately, Arafat is now sick enough that he's offensive in English, too. He asserts Israel's right to live in peace, whatever that means to him, and then reads off a list of grievances, some of which aren't made up. He complains about the violation of Christian holy places, like the Church of the Nativity. Excuse me Yassir, but those guys with the guns holed up in there, turning over pews and running through the wafers like they were the supply wagon weren't speaking Hebrew. Why on earth anyone believes anything that comes out of this guy's mouth is beyond me.
