The Program

Note: If you don't have an automatic download feature, then right-click on the link (i.e., the title) that you want and choose "Save Target As..."  Apple Macintosh users do the equivalent on your platform.  Audio files are big and can take a while to open or download even if you have a broadband connection.  If you have an autoload feature, please be patient; it'll look as though nothing is happening while the file is opening or downloading.  If you see an hourglass on your monitor, everything is working fine; it simply takes a while for the file to download and begin to play.  If you have an enabled pop-up stopper, you may have to hold down the Ctrl key while clicking the link in order to open the file and play it.
