PLEASE HELP ME!

I want to play an audio clip at the website www.wikipedia.com/wiki/WFAN. When I click on the file link, it automatically opens realplayer, but an error message comes up. It says:
"Requested file not found. The link you followed may be outdated or inaccurate." The website is only 1 year old, so I can't imagine that it's outdated. So, I'm hoping the file is in the wrong format.

On the error message, this file is shown:

rtsp://real.cbsig.net/demand/WFAN/1003/10-28jerome.rm

The .rm seems weird to me. I don't know if .rm files are on my RealPlayer plus' default list. When I try to SAVE the file on my harddrive, it gets saved as .smi

I really want to play this file.... it's a pretty funny clip of a crazy yankees fan. PLEASE HELP ME if you have any ideas.

.smi files, I believe, are Shrinkwrap files for Apple/Mac computers.
.rm file extension is the common one for Realplayer Media.
If you could provide a link the the page with the we could attempt to duplicate your problem.

Here's the site I'm having a problem with:

WFAN New York

If you go down the page under CALLERS and then under JEROME FROM MANHATTAN, it's the link "A typical Jerome from Manhattan phone call, to the now-defunct "Mac and Sid" midday show, 28 Oct 2003" that causes the problem.

It looks to me, after following the tracks, that the original source is no longer there or has become corrupt.
