Shruti on Worldspace Radio

I just found out about this and thought I would make a blog post so everyone else can enjoy it as well!

Shruti, a 24 hour radio station dedicated to Carnatic music, is provided by Worldspace Radio and was only available in Asia, Europe and Middle East.

Finally, this has been made available online and we can now listen to it in the US as well!
It is available online at http://worldspace. msnserver. com

Shruti has some interesting programmes, such as artist interviews and specials on great artists of the previous as well as current generation. There are listener request shows as well, where we get to hear some popular and rare recordings. It is quite hard to keep a channel dedicated to Carnatic music alone for 24x7, and Shruti is doing a fantastic job at it!

At the website, you can sign up for a 3-day free trial. After that, it is $9.99 per month for the subscription. With it, you get a total of 10 channels, including Hindustani, Carnatic, and other regional music.

Sign up now and Enjoy!

I am not able to get the shruti radio since the last few days. I have been a regular listener and am now much depressed and disappointed despite clicking on the web page and on the site the page displays.

Please help me to listen again. What steps should I take to get back to listening to shruti radio over the net.
