============================================ Rock-it Radio Program Webpage Reminder
Remember, if the show that you want to hear is getting close to the bottom of the list of radio shows, you should tune in as soon as you can. These shows to have a high audio quality require a lot of internet bandwidth and memory. And currently we can only afford the 25 latest shows online here at Rock-it Radio. So, when a new show is put online it knocks the oldest one off the Rock-it Radio archives page. Usually a show will at least last 16 to 20 days, once it is placed in the archives.
