How to listen to Aiba-chan's radio show online (meaning... live)

Post is now obsolete, please check this new tutorial!

OK I have to post this because this has always been a problem for me, trying to catch Arashi radio show online, at the time it airs (and not to have to wait for the mp3 download, even if I'm terrificly grateful to all the uploaders!)

So I just figured out how to listen to Aiba no Rekomen (currently listening to it, he's playing "Aozora Pedaru" ^0^... Ohohoho now it's "Futari no kinenbi", it's not often that I hear it X3).

First you need to install the program peercast. Once it's installed, let it run, it will stay running in the background, you can see the little icon at the bottom right, in your taskbar:

Then I recommend using Winamp as a player (Jennifer tried using Real Player but ended up having to install Winamp in the end), taht's what I'm using and it's working perfectly.
edit: Apprently it's working fine with BSPlayer (thanks labeledlikeme <3)

Then, if winamp is your player by default, you just have to click this peercast link, you will see a popup asking you if it's ok that the link request a program to run (or something like this), just say "OK", then a little popup will appear on your peercast icon.

If Winamp is not your player by default, just run Winamp, click the peercast link above anyway, close your player (except if, obviously even if it's not Winamp, I dont know), open winamp, go to file>Play URL, and copy-paste this link:


Then you can play it.

For further listenings, to make it easier, save this station in your bookmarks (file>Play Bookmark>add current as bookmark):

edit: tenshi_angels87 posted a method with WMP here, without using peercast, for the people who have Vista. THANK YOU <3

Aiba-chan radio show is every Friday from 24:00>24:30 (meaning the night from Friday to Saturday) Japan Time.

I must say it's awesome to be able to listen to it at the same time than every Japanese fans *.*

I've searched for Sho Beat, apparently you can directly from FM Fuji website but you have to pay (if only I could figure it out ;_;), I also search for Bay Storm (apparently, you could listened to Bay FM through peercast some months ago, but not anymore T0T), and I couldn't find Jun Style either (on NACK5). I haven't tried Riida yet.

If anyone can help on this, this would be really welcomed!!!!

Thank you Jen for finding the peercast method <3
I hope this helped some people ^^;;;;;

cool, i found out about peercast a while back but never figured out how to use it. i usually just stared at the yellowpages to look for familiar stations. but yeah, no winamp for mac and i am never converting from itunes, really.

but thank you! <3<3

Try to look around this thread, apparently VLC should work for this too, no need of iTunes!

I might try this some time soon ^^ Thanks for sharing.
8th-Dec-2007 09:25 am (UTC)
You're welcome, I hope it'll work for you ^^y
7th-Dec-2007 11:00 pm (UTC)
Wow, I didn't even know such thing exist! It's like winamp is your Japan radio... or something XD Thanks for sharing, I'll try that some time :D
8th-Dec-2007 09:26 am (UTC)
Yes it's totally that X3 Makes Winamp so much sexier XDDDD
8th-Dec-2007 12:01 am (UTC)
Thank you for the superb instructions! :D
8th-Dec-2007 09:28 am (UTC)
I hope this helps you ^^y

Thanks for the hint! I'll send him my mail today, on my sister's birthday so that he can read it on his show next Friday (I hope). However my Internet has died and I'm not too sure if I'll be able to listen to it live. I'll need to download it then! Well, you can tell me if he reads it! I want to do a present to my sister through his show, so I asked him to laugh for her. Is it too much I wonder?
8th-Dec-2007 09:29 am (UTC)
Eeeeeh, I really hope he'll read it!!!! MORE FOREIGN FANS YAAAAAAY XDDDDDDDDD

And it would be a wonderful gift ne!!! I don't think there was need to ask him to laugh for your sister because he would be already laughing... BECAUSE HE'S ALWAYS LAUGHING XDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
I don't think it's too much, it'll surely make him happy as it's an original request ^^

i tried peercast couple months ago and it worked but it was SO HARD to record. stupid macs. then i discovered that it was easier just to download. lol. haha i had to get up at like 6am to listen to them live!! it was tough..
8th-Dec-2007 11:39 pm (UTC)
Indeed, it's better to download it XDDD

Well I think Aiba no Rekomen is the only one I'll be able to catch as I'm not working on Thursdays.
I'm not even sure I would be able to catch Sho Beat (10:00AM for me) on some Sundays (working)..
There's still Aiba-chan XDDD
8th-Dec-2007 11:29 am (UTC)
I got it! thank u for ur superb instruction. yay! can't wait for next friday
8th-Dec-2007 11:40 pm (UTC)
You're welcome, I'm glad you made it all work, you'll see, it's awesome to hear it live X33333
9th-Dec-2007 03:28 am (UTC)
WAH! I did it! Thank you so much! cept..I used BSPlayer not WinAmp. I wanted to see it it would work with it too so there...it does. But sometimes it just pauses or theres no sound..then it continues again. is that normal?

I feel so happy to be able to listen to it LIVE. kya~ I wanna hear the other boys' radio shows too..LIVE ^^ yay for peercast! Thank you so much again :D
9th-Dec-2007 08:13 am (UTC)
YAY!!! I've edited my entry with this bit of info if you don't mind ^^

Hum I don't know, I didn't tried to pause, but Jennifer did, and said then it couldn't stop pausing, then playing etc... (like you said). So I decided I wouldn't Pause XDDDDD i don't know the reason behind it though :/
10th-Dec-2007 06:46 am (UTC)
woaaahh thanks so much for this!!! I never could've figured it out XD, I only wish it was for Sho instead of Aiba, too bad one has to pay, it's not fair ;_; btw your layout is soo pretty!
13th-Dec-2007 11:58 am (UTC)
I wish too T0T (even if I couldn't be able to listen to it as I'm working most of the time when it's airing)
Thank you <3
13th-Dec-2007 11:21 am (UTC)
you're a goddess! This is amazing :O I tried it *is a winamp user* and it works perfectly! Of course, I'm listening to some weird happy-go-lucky Japanese song (which is probably for kids or something)right now XD But it does work! *hugssss* if only there's a way to listen to Sho Beat now...*tries to find out more*
13th-Dec-2007 11:28 am (UTC)
I'm glad it's working for you! CAN'T WAIT TO BE TOMORROW TO HEAR AIBA-CHAN LIVE \^0^/
*currently working on your version of Cool and Soul, with Sho-kun to-die-for-sexy hip twisting DVD on loop XDDDDD*

Honey you can also listen to Aiba's radio show on Windows Media Player.

> Start up WMP
> Close to the top left corner there should be "HOME" ... "MUSIC" ... "MOVIES" ..... CLiCk on "RADIO"
> It would lead you to a new page, under the "GO" button ***on the right side** ... CLicK on "INTERNET RADIO"
> Now you should see a small rectangle box ***with a GREEN arrow pointing right***
..... ~ Put "JOQR"
> Once you put that, you'll see a box displaying "Web JOQR Internet Radio"
..... ~ Close by "JAPAN" click on the arrow pointing down
..... ~ Click on "PLAY"

Viola, you now can listen to baby's radio show. I use to use Peercast, but that don't work in Vista so this is the alternative way ^o^

I've just edited my post with it!

BTW, I tried to use this method, but I'm just sticked with HOME, MUSIC, MOVIES... no "RADIO" T0T

Well I have only WMP 10, maybe it only appears in version 11, and as I'm still with Windows SP1, I can't upgradeWMP anymore *really don't want to install SP2*

Do you have access to FM FUJI, Bay FM and Nack5 with this method?
If yes... I may well be corrupted and install SP2 XDDDDDDD
