Funny you should ask. Just checked their website--
www.wpr.org/music/archive.cfm -- and found:
"Effective February 26, 2004, our music listings are only
available starting the day after broadcast. Information will
continue to be available at all times from WPR Listener
Services at 1-800-747-7444. We apologize for what we hope
will be a temporary inconvenience. "Unfortunately, a recent
ruling on the scope of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
passed by Congress prohibits us from making advance play lists
available to the public as long as we stream our broadcast
service on the Internet. WPR is working with CPB, NPR and
similarly affected public radio stations around the country
to secure permission from the music industry to reinstate
this service. Again, our sincere apologies."
