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 ^^;;;;;

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?

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 sent it! I sent it! My sister doesn't know yet! It's a secret! If he reads it I'll download the show, burn it on a cd and give it to her to listen. How much do you bet that she'll cry? Aiba is her favorite idol by far and she cried so hard when he read his letter even though she hadn't started learning japanese yet! He touches her heart!

That would be an awesome idea, let's hope this happens ne ^^y
I'm sure this will definitely make her start learning Japanese XDDDD

Oh she has started since last year! She sat for the lvl4 exam last week. She's good as well. Yesterday she threw a big party and I was able to bait a girl into Arashi! She loved the music and the meaning of the lyrics. Arashi love is spreading!!!
