Listen to the radio while you work
There are thousands of radio stations that you can listen to via the Internet. Some of the available audio is a Web-based version of a conventional broadcast, while others produce "radio" that is available only via the Internet. The audio is processed by the Windows Media Player, which comes free with Windows Me and Internet Explorer. If you don't have it, you can download it from the Windows Update Web site.
You can set up your computer to listen to a broad range of programs, from Latin music to police radio scanners.
- The Windows Media Guide
lists numerous categories of radio stations, including those with an Internet-only presence. Try out a station or two by clicking on "listen." After you've found a station you like, simply minimize the Windows Media Player box and let the audio run in the background.
Note Your computer must be equipped with an audio card and speakers to play audio.
