It's nothing less than astounding. You can find and listen to thousands, not just 100s, of your favorite artists singing and playing your favorite tracks. These aren't samples, they aren't partial tracks. Now you can get it all. And best of all it takes just a few minutes and costs nothing (to just a few dollars a month) for you to listen to the best songs, concertos, symphonies and more.

Do you love Barbershop Quartets, Broadway Musicals or Show tunes? How about Beethoven, Scartlotti, or Mozart? Maybe Elvis, The Platters, or the Everly Brothers are your thing. Or, maybe it's Bluegrass, Folk or Country Swing. Now it's all yours.

a good example of what I've found. For months I'd been looking for an LP or CD of Tartini's 'Devil's Trill.' I used to have a tape of it but I'd lost it about 15 years ago. Well, I found it here with my first click under Tartini. It was awesome. What great musical work, lost artist or favorite tunes would you like to find and listen to? And then onto some Mariachi music. Ole. Wow, what fun.


Now you'll find AND LISTEN to it all effortlessly 24/7. Imagine saying I'd like to hear Tom Jones, Neil Diamond or the Kingston Trio right now. Maybe you'd like to catch Mariah Cary, Justin Timberlake or Bon Jovi. Well, From Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, to Eminem and Brittany Spears, now you'll hear it all. From Mariachi Music (ole) to Calypso Music, well to Tartini, you'll find it all

There's just one problem. If you're like me, you've probably already replaced the small, cheap, basic speakers that came with your computer. Maybe you've substituted good 'computer' speakers with your computer. Maybe you've even added a small subwoofer. But let's face it. Virtually none of us have added real floor standing audiophile speakers and subwoofers powered by powerful audiophile amplifiers and receivers like you have with your main stereo system or your home theater system connected to their computers.

Enter DAK's new PC to Stereo Protected Perfection Interface cable with impedance matching transformers and complete ground isolating protection.

Now you can connect your computer to your main stereo system and listen to all this great music 24/7. Now you can harness all the power and fidelity that the real amps and real floor standing speakers of your main stereo system can produce. And, just wait till you hear the sound in your own home or office.

Oh, and all of this great music plays while you're working on your computer. You can surf, calculate, or write the great American novel as you listen to beautiful music. There's very little overhead on your computer so you probably won't even know that you've turned your computer into a multimedia powerhouse while you use your computer for normal computing.

My Favorite is on page 2, (this page got too big) but like me, I think you'll love getting the best of all three of these great music sources. After all with thousands of highly focused radio broadcasts playing exactly what you want to hear, and usually, only what you want to hear, on each of my three top choices, you'll play exactly what and who you want from now on. Now your PC will be THE MOST IMPORTANT component in your stereo system. Check it out.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Below I show a lot of types of music examples (more than normal) because if you don't already know about all you can choose to hear, you simply won't believe it unless you see it yourself. I don't want you to miss this. So why not check it out yourself?

This is a free service where you just choose and click to listen to over 7,000 Internet Radio Stations. Now hold on. Many of these stations ARE NOT like you're used to listening to on the radio. First most don't have commercials (more later). But because they are small and highly focused, you'll find stations that play exactly the type of music you want 24/7. In a minute I'll explain. I've set presets to some of my favorites. There's one that plays over 570 Broadway Musical tracks 24/7. Oh, Phantom, the Music Man and Oklahoma are great. There's another that I particularly like that plays barbershop quartets 24/7.

For 60,70,80s classic rock you'll have dozens of choices. For classical and opera there appears to be no limit. Just pick they type of music you want to listen to and click. You'll have it right now.

Now do you see what I mean about 'exactly the type of music you love? With over 7000 stations and hundreds of types of music, you're sure to find just want you want.

There's just one downside. Well, sort of. There's a pay service upgrade for $3.65 per month and a free service.

If you opt for the free service (which is everything I've described above and a whole lot more) they tend to inundate you with popup ads and audio ads while you listen. I hate ads, which is why I rarely listen to AM/FM radio, so I want my music without ads. That's the downside to the free service.

My take? I don't think they really care that much about the ads. I think it's just to make you sign up for the $3.65 per month mostly ad-free service. When you do. It's simply great. I have no reservations about the $3.65 service. It will blow you away. You can choose any conceivable type of music to listen to 24/7.

Just click on your choice and it plays. Great! Check the list of Genre and you'll find EVERYTHING you can imagine and some you can't. The interface is pretty basic, but it works great. It's just not as slick and fancy as Winamp's or Musicmatch's interfaces which I've described on the next page.

Now The Interface.

It's really pretty simple to use. You just download it and you'll get the small window I've pictured above. Here's a brief description of using it.

1. This is the name of the station. Unlike what you'd see on your AM/FM radios, these stations tend to be very focused and not general interest. So, when You want to listen to Broadway musicals, just pick one of the Broadway musical stations as I have above and that's all you'll hear 24/7. Wow, this is great.

2. You'll see exactly what's playing. You don't have to guess. You'll see who and what and how long the track is. Pretty good information for free.

3. You'll also see what has played.

4. You can set the volume right from this window. It doesn't have to stay on top, just bring it back up whenever you want to see what's playing, change stations or adjust the volume.

5. This green Plus sign let's you add any station to our presets so you can instantly go back to it. Makes life really easy. With over 7,000 choices it's nice to have easy access to what you want.

6. Here's the pull down preset menu so you can go back to your favorite station(s) instantly and effortlessly. You'll really love the ability to hear just want and who you want just when you want.

7. This shows that I'm now an Ad-Free listener. I paid my $3.65 per month. Otherwise this is an ad. Plus you'll get popups and audio ads too. It's OK. And heck it's free. But, as I said, I really hate ads. I just want my music..

OK, Onward. The rest of this section is really just to give you a flavor of what you're going to be able to hear the minute you turn on Live365. It's awesome. Take a look at some of what I've found below


Here's another Broadway Station Right now I'm listening to "Rocky Horror Show." What would you like to listen to?


Here's what one of the search pages looks like when you want to explore a category. Here I just typed in 60s. BUT YOU CAN BE FAR MORE selective than this. But you can see from my arrows above that there are:

1) 76 stations that match the 60s criteria. 2) You see the name of the station, an example of the songs they play, in this case every top 3 hit of the 60s, and 3) the bitrate and modulation that they are broadcasting in. FM sounds better than AM and higher bitrate provides a better broadcast.

Anyway. Just tune in and see what you think. Oh and to tune in? Just click the speaker icon on the left and your player will launch and start playing the station for you instantly.

Here I've just selected 3 of my favorite Broadway Stations for you to see. Pretty neat.



But, there's much more than Broadway Musicals. Here's a station that plays nothing but Classical Guitar. Did I tell you that you had a lot of really great choices or what? Are you getting the idea of all you can find yet?


As long as were on Classical, here's a more traditional broadcast which simply plays great classical music. Maybe you'll let some of these stations choose for you. Up to you.


Here's part of one of the pull down menus. Look at all the choices for types of music you have. There's much more. But I wanted you to see how easy it is and just part of how broad your listening choices really are.


Well, Christmas is coming to town. But maybe you want Christmas in July. You'll never be out of the Christmas spirit when you tune in the carols on this station. Oh, and I've seen stations that play music from the rides at Disneyland and oh so much more.


I really like Irish Folk Music. And, there's a ton of it for me and for you on the Internet. Want other types. It's all here too. Scottish, Russian and on and on.


I love Jazz too. There are other stations where you can select just the artist you want to here. ON this station, you get a specific type of jazz. It's all up to you.


Country is big. And so there are lots of stations for you to log onto that will satisfy all your country needs.

Before I showed you Broadway Musicals. Well would you believe that on focused stations like you'll have here, you get movie soundtracks on an entirely different station? Most people would just lump them together. Well, not here. Now you really can select and enjoy exactly what you want, exactly when you want it.
