The interesting thing about that link is that I could access the station by
pasting and opening it within the main open dialog of IE, but it didn't work
when directly accessed from My Favorites.  I was so glad to get it I just
went the long way around and never mentioned it on Blindtech.  I always
wondered why it wouldn't open as a Favorite.  I still enjoy the station.  

I have never looked for Music Of Your Life on Replay, but it will be
interesting to see if it can be found, or if that link does work.

some sites use their own jump links to accomplish things.
By jump link I mean that the link you see is linked to the real url which
then accesses the stream.
Bill Sparks does this a lot, the urls in the Realplay AV database do this,
and I believe so does Vtuner.
Radiotime also does something similar.
If you *must* have the true url, use the url finder in RAV or a media player
There is an advantage to the jump link concept, as I call it.
The jump link doesn't have to change even if the underlying url changes so
long as those maintaining the database internally update.

I recall that discussion of Music of Your life; and it was through Vtuner
that I finally was able to give you something that you could bookmark and
get to directly.
I wasn't using RAV at the time; you've got my curiosity stirred and I should
see what the urlfinder does with that VTuner link.
