Streaming Radio FAQ

How long has KCFV been Streaming?

KCFV Ferguson has been streaming live since Oct. 8, 2008. At approximately 12:30pm KCFV went live with the song “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. Barry Yoakum was the operator on duty.

It’s not working.. What do I do?

First, make sure that you have Quicktime installed on your computer. If you are not sure if you have Quicktime, go to the Quicktime website and download the latest and greatest version.

What kind of computer do I need to run Quicktime?

You can run Quicktime on a Mac or PC. If you run a PC, it has to be a Pentium Processor based (or equivalent) machine, have at least 128mb of RAM and run XP service pack 2 or Vista. If you have a Mac, it should “just work”.

I’ve downloaded Quicktime and it still doesn’t work. What do I do now?

Quicktime may not be correctly receiving the KCFV streaming feed. To setup Quicktime to make sure that it receives the KCFV streaming feed, click on the bottom right triangle, and select “Connection Feed.” Once the menu pops up, select the “Advanced” tab the top. Under the "Streaming" section, select the transport type and click on “Custom.” This will open up the Streaming Transport window. From here, set the “Transport Protocol” to HTTP, and make sure that the “Port ID” is set to 80. Click "OK" to close out that window and "Apply" on the next window. Once the settings have been saved, click “OK” and then refresh the webpage. This should allow you to listen to KCFV live online.

Can I find KCFV online anywhere else?

KCFV can also be found on iTunes. Just click on the “Radio” section and under “College Radio” you can find the KCFV stream there!

I saw my friend listening to The Wave on their smartphone. How can I do that?

On the iPhone, search for “College Radio Tuner” in the App Store and download it. Then find KCFV on the wheel and you can tune in anywhere you have at least a 3G data connection.

On Android smartphones, download the TuneIn radio app from the Play Store and search KCFV. Add it to your favorites and listen anywhere there is at least a 3G data connection.

I have a question that is not on this list, who can I contact?

You can email Paul Huddleston at phuddleston@stlcc.edu.
