Well I'd tried Radio 5 too for coverage.
Incidentally I did pick up Sonia's heat loud and clear on 2fm Real Player Stream t'other night at 9.50 EST - Maybe it was totally "acidental" by RTE but for others like Melmac and Mary and meself who have no LIVE access to Olympic coverage over here in USA, it's worth checking out. Hope they manage another "accident" at 4am on Saturday morning - If not, JUST MAYBE one CRCfm may continue their revolutionary radio and defy the IOC by broadcasting live Olympic Commentary on The Internet - Go for it CRC!
Finally it's unbelievably ironic here to see with the NBC taped coverage something as ridicilious with Today's technology - Families of US Compeditors in Sydney on their Mobile phones calling the family back in USA to tell them the live results 17 hrs before they may or may not be able to see it on NBC TV.
It's like something that we heard about with Ronnie Delaney's victory in Melbourne 44 years ago in '56 (Though then there was at least live radio I think!) - Apparently at the time there were no Irish Newspapers covering the Olympics and the scribes wrote their reports from the radio commentary.
