VERY IMPORTANT -- PLEASE READ: This is a beta test of an audio stream and live program, so IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT AT POINTS TODAY IT WILL CRASH. In fact, we are kind of hoping it will crash so that we can work the bugs out.

If the stream crashes and prevents all of this from happening, FEAR NOT. We will try again later this week, and will continue to do so until everyone can enjoy a full day of free audio goodness.

AGAIN -- THIS IS A BETA TEST. A crash is very likely. If you experience any issues, please email Tony at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Today we will be airing both Figure Four Daily with Open Lines and Twitter questions (5 PM ET/2 PM PT), and Wrestling Observer Radio (4 AM ET/1 PM PT) LIVE!

Best of all, these shows will be COMPLETELY LIVE AND FREE for everyone worldwide! Please help spread the word!

You can contact me live during the shows @bryanalvarez and using the hashtag #F4WLive

PLUS! For the next several days as we do our testing, the last two weeks of Bryan & Vinny, Wrestling Observer Radio and Figure Four Daily will be streaming back-to-back nonstop. If you've never signed up before, this is a great chance to see what you have been missing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For some users, when we switch to live programming the stream may die for you. Simply restart the stream and you will hear the show. For others, the switch from taped programming the live programming will be instant and seamless.

OK, with all that out of the way, LISTEN TO THE LIVE STREAM HERE.
