KFI Live

Since KFI updated their streaming software, us non-MS users have had issues in listening to the live stream. Mplayer doesn't work because it claims that it's missing a codec and it really doesn't like the multiple forwarders that the web client employs. Try this:
  1. Go here.
  2. Hit "stop" before the page redirects.
  3. Right click on "click here" and select "copy link location"
  4. open a terminal and type mplayer (don't hit return yet)
  5. paste the link (copied earlier) into the command line and hit enter

Depending on the age of this hint, you should start hearing the KFI feed.
