Also in the radio department, I've been listening to the MPEG-4 audio stream for radioio a lot this week. At around 130-150kbits/sec (VBR), it's dramatically better-sounding than the 128kbit/sec MP3 streams to which I ordinarily listen. Just heard a song that used to be my favorite for a while in high school: now, while I still know the lyrics by heart, I can't stand the singer's voice or the excessively poppy style. On the other hand, it's the first time I've heard it on the “radio” since it was popular. I always wondered what people meant when they said their tastes in music change; now I know.

radioio is going subscriber-only at the end of the month, and I'm sorely tempted to fork out for it, especially with the loss of FolkScene and KPIG broadcasts.
