 Do You Need Help?
I'll try to help you to the best of my knowledge.
(I'm not perfect.)

For tuning into the show,
there are a few ways you can do this:
 
You can use either Windows Media Player,
which is installed on most computers.
Or you can use WinAmp.
 
Most of you will have
Microsoft - 98SE, 2000, ME, XP, Vista & 7
operating system. Windows Media Player
will most likely be installed already under
Programs as a part of your basic opearating system.
 
Here is two versions I have tried.
Here are the links for you to get them if needed. 
And one I have not tried is:
(Newer versions most likely will need more hard drive space.)
 
 
First: Highlight this URL below, then right click and copy it.
mms://64.201.219.36/live
 
Second: Click on "File" in the upper left hand
corner of the Windows Media Player's window.
 
Third: Click on "Open URL", a small window will pop up.
Right click and paste the URL in the box.
Then click on the Ok Button.
 
 
Also you can use WinAmp too.
Here is where you can download the latest version
 
Second: Click on "File" in the upper left hand
corner of the WinAmp's window.
Third: Click on "Play URL". A window will pop up.
Right click and paste then on the Open Button.

The other way for tuning into the show is:
 
By going to the Hardwired Radio website with only
Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Scroll down the page and look below the chat room
window for the {Play & Stop} buttons.
 
 For Firefox users,
these buttons are not functional.

How to access Hardwired Radio's
and World Wide Polkas's chatrooms:
 
With Firefox Chatzilla or mIRC or
any chat client of your choice.
 
This information is what you'll need.
Server = irc.starchat.net
Port = 6667
Channel = #worldwidepolkas
In Firefox, in the little text box at the bottom of the
chat room window is where you'll start typing.
You'll need to take your mouse and click on that box
to activate it and will enable you to type your messages.
 
 
Basic commands in the small text box:
 
First type: /server irc.starchat.net then enter.
Second type: /join  #worldwidepolkas then enter.
You should be in the chat room!
If you see "DJ_DCO_Thomas", then you found me!
 
 
If you have JAVA installed on your computer:
 
You can go to go directly to the Starchat's chat room.
 
 
 
Here is a link to get the lastest JAVA for your computer!
