What can't hear no sound? Probably means you haven't downloaded RealAudio plugin for your web browser. Collect it at:
RealAudio RealAudio, a plugin to hear .ra files with Nutscrape, Injurenet Explorer, and probably other browsers.

'Twas in the year of when Brian Adams was born, and his music has not got any fresher.
