They don't have standard naming conventions... they usually name the files with the topic and/or speaker. They don't upload on a regular schedule, either. Some of them don't upload until it's too late. (We air an old backup program for that day.)

There aren't a LOT of these, but enough to be annoying. Essentially, you need a human to read/interpret what's there, select the relevant things, then download them.

We use 44.1K files here, because that's the CD standard. Since roughly 1/2 of our broadcast is music, it makes sense to be consistent with that standard.

There are a handful of program providers that require logging into "strange" WEBsites, navigating through menus, etc, to get to their files. Then they have to be selected and downloaded. None of our automatic systems can process that.

Time to brush up on your Linux skills, Willie. Using the powerful wget command and a little parsing, you can automate the downloading of pretty much anything from any website.

We are thankful that a MAJORITY of program providers DO use 44.1 as a standard... but there are always those "outliers" that just have to do things differently. ;)

Do keep in mind that 44.1k is a CONSUMER standard. The 48k rate is a PROFESSIONAL standard. Kind of like mp3 files. They are fine for archives and consumer mp3 players, etc. but most professional broadcasters shy away from them for on-air use.
