      • I don’t know how they do it, but I have a subscription to FAN Outdoors from KFAN that ITunes can download automatically. It is not in the ITunes store, they just have them archived somehow on the KFAN website. I’ll bet Billy Hildebrandt would be willing to get you in touch with the folks that set it up to see how they do it.
