On June 26th, MacDailyNews’ own SteveJack wrote an opinion piece entitled, “Secrets revealed: the world’s coolest radio station and how to listen via iTunes.” In the piece, SJ wrote, “Unfortunately, the WDST site isn’t particularly Mac-friendly (you’d think they’d cater to Mac users given their “coolness” factor!); pages fail to render correctly in Safari and WDST insists, “Listening to WDST online requires the Real ONE Player” in bold type.”
SJ then went on to explain how to listen to WDST’s stream in iTunes 4 in just a few steps.
Now, WDST (perhaps after an influx of Mac visitors precipitated by SJ’s article) has updated their page to read, in part, “You can listen to WDST live on the Internet — for free! WDST’s stream is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS!!! You select Windows Media Player, Real Player, Apple’s iTunes or the popular Mp3/CD/Radio player Winamp. So click the player of your choice below and listen now!”
WDST then gives the directions SJ provided to set up iTunes to listen to “the world’s coolest radio station” and provides a direct link to SJ’s article. The WDST.com page still fails to display perfectly in Safari, but Mac users should be heartened to see such a response from a formerly Mac-agnostic site! Hopefully, the site will be tested in Safari soon and the rendering issues will be cleared up as well.
Visit WDST’s website and listen to “Radio Woodstock – World Class Rock” via iTunes here.
