Radio Baha’i, WLGI is streaming live on the Internet. The easiest way to listen is to click on the LISTEN button and the streaming player will pop up, then click on the play arrow in the lower left corner of the player. Try it out, let us know what you think, and share with your friends. After all, we can’t help you with building spiritual communities if people in your community aren’t listening.
There are several other ways to listen to Radio Baha’i using an internet connection as well, all of which are detailed below, but none as easy as the player.
The player will either launch a new browser window or will be embeded in the web page. It will display the album art, artist and song title for the current song, and display the artist and title for the last five songs or programs that were played. The player will automatically choose the best stream coding for your computer, phone or tablet, and browser. You can then choose the bandwidth that works for you from the drop down menu. “WLGI High” will give you the best sound, while “WLGI Low” will use the least amount of your data plan, and works best with slow data connections. We suggest that when you are on WiFi or connected by cable of some kind to the Internet, use the “WLGI High” stream. If you are on the cellular network, or if you are experiencing any drop outs, then choose “WLGI Low”.
The mobile player looks different from the desktop player - it is specifically formatted for various mobile devices, and will look much better on them than the desktop version. If you don't see the recently played songs after you launch the mobile player, just scroll down a bit and you'll see them.
Some people might prefer to use the mobile version of the player on your desktop/laptop computer. If you click on the image of the mobile player, it will force the mobile version to load.
