International Entertainment Online
Expanding musical horizons at BBC1
The Internet has brought the world closer than ever before. This means that you can enjoy the same programming from London as easily as you can in Los Angeles. If you are lucky enough to speak a foreign language (or looking to learn or practice), the offerings are greatly increased for finding some interesting entertainment. Remember, the world is one big online village, so go out and meet your neighbors.
Step 1: Explore music from the UK
The BBC is ground zero for music news from "the other side of the pond". Exploring this site will reveal a different view of your favorite groups in addition to introducing you to some new ones.
Step 2: Get to the site
Go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1 and look at the style and substance of the site. It offers up to the minute music news, interviews, and there are even quizzes that you can take.
Step 3: Listen to Radio 1 live
Click on "Listen" from the main page to bring up an integrated Real Audio player. You are now listening to the show live from London. The player has some additional features not found in the standard player.
Step 4: Getting into the club
The "play" key (red triangle facing right) is actually a shortcut to Radio 1’s club where you can find offerings related to England’s thriving club scene (Disc Jockeys spinning records live for dancing).
Step 5: Get alternative
If alternative music is more to your liking, you can select the "đ" key which will take you to the "Alt" section. Here is where you can find information on the more independent bands that are up and coming in the music world.
Step 6: Learning all the shortcuts
You can get learn what all the symbols mean by placing your cursor over the symbol and reading the text that pops up next to it.
