The KMUD Audio Archive exists so you can listen when it’s convenient for you. If you missed a show on the radio, now you have another opportunity to listen.
There are three "actions" you can take to listen to the programs archived here: You can play all programs, and you can download news and talkshows to your computer’s hard drive. You can also subscribe to some of them as "podcast."
  • Play
    Click on the "Play" link to listen to an internet stream (MP3 format) of the program in your favorite audio listening software: iTunes, WinAmp, VLC, RealPlayer or another player, for example.
    For copyright reasons fast forwarding through music programs is disabled, and music programs are not available for download.
  • Download
    Downloading lets you save a copy of the chosen program to your computer hard drive. Only public affairs, news, and talk shows are available for downloading.
    By simply clicking on the "Download" link your browser will start downloading the file and after a moment will start playing it. You could listen to the whole show in this manner if you like. Once the show is all downloaded you could go to your browser’s File menu, and choose Save As, enter a name and a location, and save the file to your computer’s hard drive.
    However, you might prefer to do the following to download quickly: Mac users can hold down the CTRL key while clicking the mouse on the "Download" link then choose the "Saved Linked File" (it might also be called "Save Link") option from the pop-up menu. Windows users should right-click and choose "Save Target As…" to save the file.
  • Podcast
    Podcasting lets you automatically receive the latest episode of your chosen program as soon as it’s available. You need to "subscribe" to receive a podcast, rather like you might subscribe to a magazine and get it delivered each week. In order to sign up for a podcast you need a piece of podcast software usually available free of charge (iTunes, Juice, and Doppler are popular examples. Click here for a list of podcast software). This software will check for new episodes and automatically download them for you. Instructions for subscribing to Podcasts will vary with the software but in general the steps you follow will involve copying the podcast’s link (PC users: right click the Podcast Button podcast logo image and select "Copy Link Address," Mac users: hold down the control key, click and select "Copy"). Then paste the link into the subscription field of your podcasting software ("Add Podcast" or "Subscribe to Podcast" in most software).

Shows will remain here for the number of days listed.
You can sort the listing by Show Name or Date by clicking on the column title.
