Javascript Question

how can i get the raw stream url of a iheartradio station.

i am trying to make a discord bot to stream the iheart80s at 103.7 radio station,
and so far i can not find a direct stream url to give my discord bot.

i have tried to get the json via python but that just returns http.client.BadStatusLine: ICY 200 OK

i am using discord.js.
and here is the function i am trying to feed the stream url into:

function(CmdArg,CmdMsg){
const voiceChannel = CmdMsg.member.voiceChannel;
voiceChannel.join().then(connection => resolve(connection)).catch(err =>reject(err));
const stream = () => {
return request.get({
uri: CmdArg,
followAllRedirects: true,
encoding: null
});
}


console.log(stream);
CmdMsg.guild.voiceConnection.playStream(stream, { passes: token.passes });
}

You can use mitmproxy on a computer to inspect the traffic for the app. I was able to identify http://c10.prod.playlists.ihrhls.com/4342/playlist.m3u8 as the stream source of that radio station. Of course, the url may change over time, so ymmv.
