Display real-time radio station info using Quicksilver

yep, repace the first line the the script with:

set songname to do shell script "curl http://www.kexp.org/getsong.asp"
much easier than downloading lynx

Thanks for the input... As you can probably tell by the script, this is my first attempt at making something useable. curl worked much better, btw.

Thanks so much for the main hint and the "curl" tip. You guys are great. For the other applescript newbies such as myself: When I copy/pasted the text into Script Editor it failed due to a capital A character with a tilde over it instead of a line break or something. I backspaced from the following line back over this char to make it one line and it then compiled ok. Save this as a Run Only script somewhere on your hd. I used my ~library/Scripts/applications/iTunes/. Then go to Quicksilver pref's, triggers and set up to run the script. To make the banner go away after you read it, just hit the return or enter key.

Again, thanks for the fantastic hint.

And thank YOU for the clarifying reply!

I thought iTunes scripts should go into ~/Library/iTunes/Scripts/ . I do know if placed there, they will appear on iTunes's Scripts menu. Is that also true of your placement?
