Pam,The thought had crossed my mind that there might be the issue you wrote about, i.e. robots and the like. Had I not run into the problem with ALL four links using Replay of late, I would not have asked. How sad some folks will go to such extremes to add to their music databases *sad face*. I have made note of the 209 link but won't propagate it further. I'm just surprised Replay didn't come up with that 209 URL.
Thank you for your concerns and spirit of fair play. Hap----- Original Message ----- From: "Pam Drake" <pamdrake@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hello, Hap, Barb, and All, Because of my personal friendship with Rick and Deb I did not comment on this subject because, frankly, I didn't know what to do. As I considered the matter Barb did indeed extract the correct direct url for the station so that let me off the hook, but only somewhat. Now let me explain. Rick and Deb have had a great deal of difficult with robot connections which connect repeatedly hundreds of times throughout the day and night, almost certainly for the purpose of finding and recording individual tunes from their play list. Not only is this process questionable from a legal standpoint, but These bots steal bandwidth from their servers, which they fund themselves, preventing live listeners from listening without dropouts and disconnections to the over-crowded server. As Rick explained it to me, these bots often are connected with up to thirty or more other bots. In other words, live listeners were prevented from connecting and listening to a quality stream. The only way Deb and Rick have found to cut down on this congestion has been to withhold the exact url from any directories, including Shoutcast or Replay Media Guide. A few weeks ago I spoke with Rick and Deb about this, and they told me they have no problem or objection to people recording the streams but I didn't ask outright for the info. Instead I extracted it from my Winamp play list. Barb, you have the right url. I have been recording the "Oldies And More" and "Deb's Saturday Morning Oldies" for several weeks now. As a personal friend of Deb and Rick I would ask all to enjoy the shows and add the station to your personal Replay show list, but please do not submit this url to any directories. I actually submitted the Loud Cities stream info to Applian before calling Deb and Rick and learning of their desire to keep the direct url private. Thanks for reading and understanding.

I look forward to what you come up with for arecordable link as I very much want to archive Rick Lewis's Home Town Countdown he hosts each Saturday evening from 9:00 to midnight CDT. He takes a top 40 station survey from various markets each Saturday from a week in the late 50s, 60s or early 70s and counts them down ... without commercials. And the audio is VERY good. Enough for my commercial *smile*.Hap----- Original Message ----- From: Life My WayTo: blindreplay@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, April 28, 2009 1:03 AM Subject: [blindreplay] Re: Can't Turn Replay Off ok, you can do your context menu key in replay av and down to stopdownload/capture and enter there and it will stop the recordingthen you can use the delete key to delete the test recording you set up i can take a look at the site and see if i can get it torecord and if so i can post the link you will need----- Original Message ----- From: hap hollyTo: blindreplay@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Sunday, April 26, 2009 8:43 AM Subject: [blindreplay] Can't Turn Replay Off Petro, I set up a test in Replay AV but now can't find how to stop therecording so I can delete it. Also, I'm having a tough time recording anything from http://www.therideradio.net, which has audio links for Winamp, WMA, RA and Loud City. For whatever reason I can't get them to work for me now, even with URL Finder on.
