Connecting to WeatherPlayer

You can listen to the RealAudio stream by installing RealPlayer and clicking the 'listen' button on the menu bar above. To get RealPlayer, go to real.com and click on the small blue text link to RealPlayer Basic on the bottom left hand portion of the page (not the large central banner as this will take you to the RealPlayer Plus product).

I hope you enjoy listening to WeatherPlayer.
