Issue with advanced RSS settings
The page at http://www.hackerpublicradio.org/advanced_rss_settings.php describes a series of features that allow the specification of a tailored RSS feed.
One of the features is
'gomax=1' which includes shows in the queue scheduled for the future. For example, the following URL requests 30 OGG format shows including those scheduled for the future:

archive.org. We usually upload the next week’s shows to
archive.org, but not all future shows as they arrive. This means that the links to some future shows returned by the feed point to currently non-existent episodes.
