KS95 is a local radio station in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, United States. It’s a top-40 station and also has some interesting personality hosts set in block of four or six hours.
I have a few online radio stations that I listen to depending on the time of day and my mood/mind set. Today, I wanted to listen to KS95 online, which I don’t normally do because there is no obvious button for listening to the stream via iTunes.
I was determined to listen to it but not use the web-player which is plain stupid and is made for people who have no knowledge of the internet/computers/programs/etc. Because I cannot stand stupidification of decent things, I set out on a long journey to figure out where the stream came from and a way to make it play for iTunes.
So then I looked for ways to convert .asf files to some type of format that could allow iTunes to play it. Of course, there is not a reasonable free method anywhere. You have to understand, KS95 is the variety station, there is no excuse to not support iTunes streams.
For now, I’ll use Windows Media Player for this station until I can no longer stand it.
