Q: I am hearing a message from time to time that interrupts the stream, what should I do?
A: Ensure that your device you are listening on has a high speed connection. Slower speeds or poor phone, tablet or computer performance can cause buffering of the stream (more tips below), which will cause buffering. When this occurs, it will re-connect to the WBAA stream and the message will repeat.
