Does anyone know what the bitrate/codec is for Global Player’s ‘HD Audio’ streams? I assume they’re better quality than 128k MP3.

Music stations, 48kbps AAC+ non HQ, HQ 128kbps MP3.
LBC - 48k regardless of format.
LBC London News - As above, however the new LBC News will have a UK 128kbps feed.

If these are the bitrates for online streams - then they contrast poorly with the 320k AAC of BBC radio streams online.
London Lite and Colorman gave kudos

Would somebody be able to capture the first 20 minutes, as I'm currently on holiday in an area which won't have reception, along with slow, unreliable wifi. If so, it'd be greatly appreciated.
And of course, the thing you must not do if the ape is enraged is the Macarena.
