    Muppet Central Radio will be going off-line for maintenance at approximately 10 pm central/11 pm eastern on Friday evening May 28. MCR will be off-line until Saturday morning May 29. The station will be back on-line as soon as possible.

    The purpose of the maintenance upgrade is to provide enhanced sound quality for all listeners.

    Thanks for your understanding and continued support.

    Muppet Central Radio is now off the air for scheduled maintenance. Once the station is back on-line (on Saturday morning May 29), I will post in this discussion. The maintenance is being done in the middle of the night so the downtime effects the smallest number of listeners.

    If you'd like to know immediately when the station is back on the air, please subscribe to this thread with an instant e-mail notification.

    Muppet Central Radio is back on the air. Thanks for your patience during the upgrade. I will continue to tweak some things throughout the day.

    The purpose of the maintenance upgrade was to provide enhanced sound quality for both regular and VIP listeners. Live365 regular listeners will notice an improvement in sound quality as every track is now in stereo. Live365 VIP members (who listen with the VIP player) will in addition notice a 50% jump in quality as the ad-free VIP stream has been upgraded from mp3 to mp3PRO.

    Both streams are at 32k so everyone will be able to hear an improvement no matter how you listen, however, VIP members will experience the largest audible enhancements. My hope is that Live365 will make mp3PRO the standard for both versions of the stream, however, for the time being they are just making it available with the VIP player. If you want to check out the VIP sound difference, a free 5-day VIP trial is available here...


    In addition to the latest sound improvements, there is a lot of new music in our Muppet Central Radio rotation. We've added new music from Sesame Street season 35, more classic Sesame animation, guest star celebrity appearances and more. Also be listening for a great new group called The Dead Hensons. They sing Muppet and Sesame music parodies and are a welcome addition to Muppet Central Radio. We now have over 1500 songs in our current rotation with new music being added all the time.

    You can listen to either version of Muppet Central Radio by clicking on the link below. The first time you listen, we recommend you choose the Live365 player for optimum sound quality.
