Hi all
I've used Audacity to record streamed audio for many
years. A few weeks ago I recorded two programmes and when I listened
to them on my iPod in the car they were clearly slow - it was like a
throwback to a cassette Walkman with the batteries running down! />I've tried it again this morning and still the same. I removed and
reinstalled Audacity - still the same.

can be heard here - />which, for comparison, is the opening thirty seconds of this BBC
