People have been asking for recent radio shows, which is great, but the thing is, you can bypass the middleman (which is me) by going directly to the WNYU website. The station has a really handy automatic archive system that allows listeners such as yourselves to download shows that you missed live. I realize it can be a little confusing if you’ve never done it before, so I’m gonna outline some easy-to-follow instructions to make it a bit simpler for you.
1) Once you arrive at the www.wnyu.org homepage, click on the “ARCHIVES” link in the upper left box.
2) You will then see a “PROGRAM” pull-down tab just beneath the WNYU header at the top of the page. Beneath that there will be a list of the most recently archived shows. Feel free to peruse the rest of the archive containing other great shows (I reccomend “Beats In Space”, “Plastic Tales From The Marshmellow Dimension”, and “Tunnel One”).
3) If “Passport” is the show you seek, then simply find that name by holding down the “PROGRAM” tab, and then select it.
4)Finally, a list of recent archived editions of “Passport” will appear in chronological order with 3 different little icons next to the “Passport” show title. Click on the icon that looks like a little computer (I think that’s what it is)– it’s the middle icon.
Bingo! Your weekly international audio exploration starts reconstructing itself bit by bit on your desktop. Sorry if I’m sounding patronizing or like I’m going into way too much detail about something seemingly self-explanatory. Thing is, I’ve directed people there before and they haven’t figured out how to download the shows, so hopefully this will help them.
