4th of July Louis Armstrong marathon

There is a Louis Armstrong marathon going on at WKCR.org.  They are playing his music for 24 hours straight, ending at midnight US Eastern Standard Time tonight.  The URL of the radio stream is below.

Unfortunately, the MP3 bit rate of the stream is 96k, so it's not exactly a critical listening experience.  That's not my reason for listening to it though.

I made a .pls playlist file for Logitech Media Server.  Contents are below.

Thanks for the tip!

I have my Sonos programmed to play KCR every weekday at 8:20 for Birdflight. But for some reason it didn't connect this morning, but I'll force it to connect for Satch!

Thanks Andy, I'll tune in. "Alexa, get me WKCR" ... and she will.
