Abacast streams???? How to?

First the compliment. I found an Internet Radio Station that I really, really want to listen to frequently with the Bose speakers. Imagine my surprise to find out that my Serviio 5.2 was out of date and the new Serviio 6.2 handles live data streams. The timing was perfect. I've been using Serviio for several years.

Now for the request. The radio station is an Abacast station: ... p?uid=6444

I'm at a loss at how to discover the correct data stream IP to make it work on Serviio. Apparently Abacast has lots of clients so being able to extract the data stream would be able to help a lot of stations get more listeners.

BTW, the station is out of Portland Oregon. It is an attempt by some old guys who used to be jocks 40-50 on the Rocker KISN in Portland to recreate the sound. They have a huge library of 45s digitized, jingles that sound right out of the 60s and 70s and original voices.

Here is a local write up on the effort to bring back the authentic sound of the oldies: ... 8343905000

Getting to run it on my big speakers would be great. I just need to work out how to get the stream into Serviio.

Thanks in advance for any pointers...And if you like Oldies, give the station a listen.
