Listening to Old Time Radio with Real Player in a VirtualBox virtual machine of Windows 7 on SlackwareCurrent.

OTR.NET is one of the better Old Time Radio sites; I have made small donations to it several times. Unfortunately, all the files are in Real format, which is one of the most heavily encumbered codecs and requires use of their proprietary, but free player. There was once a Linux version of RealPlayer, but it was abandoned about five years ago.

In case you are wondering, the VM is running a legitimate activated copy of Windows 7 that I purchased via Amazon. Windows 7 CDs are cheap these days.

I’m working with Windows in a VM because there are certain specific items I wish to test. Windows is still a kludge.
