Apple iTunes users: difficulties listening to KMEM or KUDV?

It’s come to our attention that some of our listeners that use Apple iTunes are having trouble tuning into our on-line streams for KMEM and KUDV.   What we’ve found on one of the Apple discussion boards is this suggestion:

“…opened iTunes, clicked “account”, then “authorise” and I authorised this device. Now it’s working.”

Most of us here at the stations listen to the streams using the TuneIn platform, Windows Media Player or, in the case of KUDV, clicking on the play icon (FlashPlayer).  So we’re not experts on the iTunes platform is what we’re saying.  If the above suggestion works for you (or if it doesn’t), let us know by making a comment on our KMEM-KUDV Radio Facebook page.
