New files are
highlighted in BLUE

All files are in the MP3 format. To listen to a file, double-click on the player bar
in the fourth column and it will start automatically. The files are encoded at bitrates of either
24 kbps or 32 kbps, so dial-up users should have no trouble streaming them.

Unless otherwise noted, these files do not include the Star-Spangled Banner (SSB) or
America The Beautiful (ATB). Some of these also mention the NAB's Seal of Good
Practice (SOGP).
