As of 12/4/2016 the servers are now in their new homes, the web server in Fremont and the archive server emma in Santa Cruz. Some of the pre-2004 archive programs are not yet online but will be soon. Your support is essential if the service is to continue, there are bandwidth bills to pay every month and failing disk drives to replace. Volunteers do the work, but disk drives and bandwidth are not free. Click on this bar to contribute, even a dollar helps.
Q: How can I get my web browser to download, instead of play, files?

A: For Firefox/Mozilla:
Click Tools->Options then go to the "Downloads" configuration section. Make sure the option: "Always ask me where to save files." is selected.

Alternatively, you can go to the "Applications" configuration section and find the most common file types you might download from Radio4All, like MP3 and OGG. And change each setting to "Always ask".

For Internet Explorer:
As far as I can tell there is no setting to force a download prompt after IE5, but IE tends to open a download dialog box rather than automatically play your file.

For Safari:

Downloads default to the desktop. If Safari attempts to play your file, it usually downloads it to your desktop first. A download manager window opens when you begin a download allowing you to pause, resume, or cancel a download.
