KDNK now heard in cyberspace

Aspen Times Staff Report

KDNK Public Radio is going global, letting listeners far out of transmitter range tune in to the Carbondale station’s programming.

Now whether you’re in Aspen or Afghanistan, all you need is a computer and a phone jack to hear KDNK’s musical programming or the latest segment from National Public Radio.

“This is a very exciting moment for us in the history of KDNK,” said General Manager Allen Scott. “While we are not the first radio station to do this, we are the first in the Roaring Fork Valley. And we are in a small group of stations nationwide who have made this move to be heard via the World Wide Web.”

To put KDNK into cyberspace, an Internet connection is made through Sopris Surfers of Carbondale. Then the live audio is sent to WebRadio for global cyber distribution.

For the listener, the first step is to visit the radio station’s Web site at http://www.kdnk.org. Once you’re at the Web site, click onto the “Listen to KDNK Live” option.

WebRadio doesn’t require plug-ins, but the speed of the connection may vary depending on the browser a would-be listener is using. Netscape 3.0 and higher and Internet Explore 3.0 or higher should access the station Web site and global live link, according to KDNK.

KDNK is a community, public radio station serving the Roaring Fork Valley and, now, the farthest reaches of cyberspace. The station offers a wide variety of musical programming, as well as local news and programming from NPR.
