My friend Bill Wagman has a Saturday folk show on KDVS in Davis, California. He interviewed Jim McLean about the Ding Dang Dollar album, and broadcast it today.
I don't know how long the broadcast is available, but it will be online for at least a few weeks.

Here's the link:
http://kdvs.org/m3u.php?show_date=2018-03-03&show_id=4772&show_name=The+Saturday+Morning+Folk+Show&kbps=320



And the playlist: https://kdvs.org/playlist-details/45665/


With Google Chrome, the browser downloaded a file titled 2018-02-24_4772_320kbps.m3u to my "downloads" folder. Then I right-clicked the file and selected "open with." A list of players showed up, and I chose "Windows Media Player" one time and "Media Monkey" another. No doubt, many of the players on the list will play the program for you.




I found the interview to be very interesting.

I just posted on the Ding Dong Dollar thread that the downloaded file as posted above by Joe is just a launcher program and due to a fault at the Californian end, it can't access the server.

It's my understanding that an M3U file is the equivalent of an MP3 and will usually play on software that plays MP3s, but the player has to be connected to the Internet and the file does not allow the material being played to be copied.
Can somebody explain further how this works, and also tell us why people in the UK have not been able to get the Jim McLean interview to function?
Thanks.

M3U is a plain text file used for playlists.This is the contents of Joe's one:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:7500,Sat Mar 3, 2018 The Saturday Morning Folk Show
http://169.237.101.62/archives/2018-03-03_4772_320kbps.mp3

I can't access that web site at all from here (in the UK) at the moment.

Hmmm. That means I may be able to download the file by right-clicking: Let's try that: http://169.237.101.62/archives/2018-03-03_4772_320kbps.mp3


Well....so far, so good. But it's a 423-megabyte file.

I think the site with the media is trying to limit access to the US or North America. It works for me (UK) if I use a US web proxy.
