What is Regent Radio?
Regent Radio is a service of Regent
Bookstore that gives people
from around the world a chance to listen to individual lectures
and complete series from the Regent
College audio library. Over
the years we have collected a vast amount of audio recordings,
from public lectures to conferences and complete courses. Regent
Radio now brings to you a selection of these recordings for listening
over the Web.

About Our Schedule
As of right now a day at Regent Radio is divided into eight hour
blocks. During these blocks we present (at least) four lectures. The
lectures are available for listening any time between the hours listed. For
example, if you wanted to hear Gordon Fee on Galatians, and the schedule
listed the lecture between 10:00 and 12:00, you could tune in at 11:30
and still hear the complete lecture, providing you kept the player
window open. If you close the window anytime past the ending hour and
then tried to re-launch the window, the next lecture would begin playing.
Once launched a window will automatically close after two hours.
We repeat the eight hour blocks three times a day, so no matter
what time zone you are in you should have a chance to listen to the
lecture at a time convenient to you.
Lectures that are part of a series might begin and
end abruptly. While
this is unfortunate, it is due to the editing necessary to break
up the series into manageable online lengths. At this time there
is no introduction or conclusion to the lecture. The next part of
the series will be available according to the schedule, usually the
Technical reasons. After doing the programming that runs Regent
Radio it was determined this was the best way to run the schedule.
We realize that most of you are probably used to a 12-hour clock, and
one day we hope to display the schedule that way, but for now it is
the way it is. For those who may need a little help here is a conversion
00:00 = midnight
01:00 = 1:00 am
02:00 = 2:00 am
03:00 = 3:00 am
etc., until mid day
12:00 = noon
13:00 = 1:00 pm
14:00 = 2:00 pm
15:00 = 3:00 pm
16:00 = 4:00 pm
17:00 = 5:00 pm
18:00 = 6:00 pm
19:00 = 7:00 pm
20:00 = 8:00 pm
21:00 = 9:00 pm
22:00 = 10:00 pm
23:00 = 11:00 pm
Why Eastern Standard Time?
A good question since Regent College is located in Vancouver, B.C.,
on the west coast of Canada and, therefore, in the Pacific Time Zone
of North America. The quick answer is again, technical. Our web server
is located at Gospelcom, which is in the Eastern Time Zone. Since
we use the server time to calculate our schedule it was necessary
to use EST.
For those tuning in outside North America EST is
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) - 5
