Hi, we've re-done our UbuRadio stream using ShoutCast. UbuRadio
streams audio selected from the archives of UbuWeb. Currently we're
streaming a few thousands selections and we'll add more soon. You can
listen to Ubu 24/7 on your favorite media player. We had previously
tried with QuickTime rather than ShoutCast, but had numerous
problems. We think this version will be much more successful.

Please give it a listen. I'm sending this announcement to a limited
group to test it out before we annouce more widely. Apologies for any

While there may be some re-buffering due to net traffic and/or
connection, please let me know if it seems excessive. Send any other
comments as well. Thanks!
