KCRW Time Machine.
Since August 1995, KCRW has been investing in the Web—with streaming, podcasting and on-demand programming. KCRW’s podcast of The Treatment was used by Steve Jobs to introduce the iPod and iTunes at the developers conference in 2005.

We were among the first organizations to embrace streaming online using the Real Player. Among the first radio stations to serve up more than one stream—Simulcast, All News and Music, 24/7. Our digital music archive and talk archives go back some 16 years.
