IN ORDER TO HEAR ANYTHING ON THIS SITE,
If you don't have it, download

works better than using the older stand alone RealAudio program. If you

when trying to listen to Blackout's Box material, then you are using
an old version and you need to get the new
RealPlayer G2. RealPlayer G2 also supports much clearer audio than older versions.
Real Player G2 plays ALL new and old RealAudio, RealVideo/RealFlash files.
This site works best with
NETSCAPE NAVIGATOR or ME 3.0 or later

Note for people who use ONLIVE TRAVELER: you must first QUIT traveler in order for this site to work.
Why download RealPlayer?
This site uses RealAudio streaming technology in order to let you hear the crank calls, sketches, and bits contained on this here without having to download huge wav files. RealPlayer G2 is the latest plugin that supports RealAudio and RealVideo streaming. It is free to download and use, and only takes a few minutes to get and install. Once you install it, you will be able to hear everything on this site instantly by just clicking on it! You will also be able to hear or see any RealAudio or RealVideo files on any other sites (of course, they are not going to be as good as what's here... smirk... Really, read what people have said!).
Everything on this site that you can listen to is marked with one of these icons.
Next to the icon it will tell you what baud rate you must be at in order to hear the selection. Simply click on what you want to hear and if you have RealAudio or RealPlayer configured properly it will launch and start playing within a few seconds, enjoy the show!. You must have version 5.0 or greater of RealPlayer to hear any of the new streaming 28.8 selections. Right now, the only thing you can hear at 14.4 is the Dog Beaters. 14.4 support is going to be gone soon because the sound quality of 14.4 real audio isn't very good, so come on and buy a 28.8 modem already!
If the audio starts breaking up, you are on a slow net connection or too many people are listening at once. Hang up and try again later.
