I listened to it through an iPhone App called "TuneIn Radio". You can find the station by browsing for Location->China->Shanghai and then scroll down to display the category "stories". It's the only Shanghai station in that category. Most programming isn't in Shanghainese, though. Most of it is instead radio theatre in Mandarin, which is pretty sweet.

When you start seeing 2,3,5,6,7,9,3',7' and 9' as letters instead of numbers.

E.g.: As-salaamu 3laykum

You know you are a language nerd when a freak snow storm on Saturday leaves you without power (so no heat,no lights, no TV or Internet) until Tuesday evening and the greatest hardship for you was not being able to check this forum.
You know you are even a bigger language nerd when the above statement is a lie because the biggest hardships were the freezing cold, no lights, and being really hungry because all your refrigerated food spoiled and was left inedible,but you wish that being without this forum would have been your number one hardship.

......when you're simultaneously watching a re-run of 'Wallander' (Swedish) on TV and consulting 6 dictionaries while putting new Polish words into Anki.
And also trying to eat supper without spilling it down your front.

I love Wallander! Even though I'm not learning Swedish, it's still great to hear Swedish and familiarise myself with it slightly.

You know you've been hitting the kanji too hard when you start seeing the shapes absolutely everywhere. Hey look...that hairline crack in my dinner plate looks just like a power radical...noooo! Any more of these late night sessions, and I could well end up like Neo from the matrix (minus the superpowers). :S

When a comment from your chemistry teacher about your eyes being red (her guess was drugs :P) leads to a full-blown explanation of the current 6WC and then an impromptu rant about Rosetta Stone when she asks why you aren't using it. And then you compile a list of alternative (ie, not RS) Persian resources for her son off the top of your head. I'm pretty sure she thinks I'm crazy now.
