These stations have dead links:

Hello Nobi:

Great job! I checked the stations you updated and they work well; the only ones that could not connect were WBLQ and WWKX.  Also WNRI is Latina Public Radio in Spanish. Also it would be good to see the "other stations" I listed eventually added to the database, too, as some of them are among the higher listened to stations in the market.

I checked the radio stations for all the 6 US New England states over the last week, finding dead links, new station names and frequencies, and additional stations currently broadcasting that were not in the Listenlive database. Particularly over the last few years in the US, radio stations are frequently merging, obtain new call letters, going out of business and shutting off their transmitters, obtain new owners, and change formats, and streaming links. I hope that this research will help all the members and moderators.

I found only AAC coded streams for WBLQ and WWKX. There may be a technical problem for the radio device.
But I could not find another stream.
For verification you may run the play function of the station records of our database directly:
  WBLQ AM 1230
  WWKX FM 106.3 ( HOT 106 )
You should be able to listen to the stations on your computer, if the browser setup for the play function is correct.

What does it mean with WNRI in Spanish?
The stream URL of our WNRI record is the same URL as that one of the original stations homepage.
Please check it via
  WNRI AM 1380

Hello Nobi:

I was incorrect - WNRI 1380 is not Spanish, it's in English. WRNI 1290 is in Spanish. The station's call letters are too similar. Thanks and great job fixing the web links to the stations - I wish I knew how to do that.

Anthony

Sorry Anthony,
I am not able to explain a standard process for finding the valid streaming URL for a radio station.

Sometimes it's quiet easy, sometimes it is difficult and there is a station where it is impossible from time to time.

An internet radio user friendly radio provider presents the actual stream URLs on his web page, i.e.:
 - https://www.kexp.org/help/ListenLiveLinks
 - http://www.deutschlandradio.de/unsere-streaming-adressen-im-einzelnen.3236.de.html
 - https://www.vrt.be/nl/aanbod/kijk-en-luister/radio-luisteren/streamingslinks-radio/
It is useful to search for this kind of information at first.

Best wishes, Nobi
