Muppet Central Radio moves to Radionomy

    We're beginning our 17th year of broadcasting at a new home. Muppet Central Radio has moved to the Radionomy network of radio stations.

    Here are just a few of the benefits:

    - Unlimited free listening - No more "station is full" messages
    - Now accessible with Radionomy apps for iOS, Android and more
    - Listen directly within any MP3 media player via Radionomy
    - Easily embed Muppet Central Radio on your website or blog

    To make all this happen, Radionomy occasionally plays location-based advertisements in the middle of our stream. Please note that because these are location-based that different users will hear different ads depending upon where you are.

    How to Support Muppet Central Radio

    More than ever, for Muppet Central Radio to continue we need your support. There are several ways you can help.

    First off, listen regularly and often. The more you listen the better. If you haven't heard the station in awhile, give it a try and let us know your feedback. Use the URLs below to help publicize and promote our station via social media and on-line. If you have a website, it would be a great help if you embed a Muppet Central Radio player on your page.

    Secondly, let us know when you hear new Muppet music, especially rare songs or new Muppet covers. If we don't know about the music, we can't play it for everyone.

    Third, consider making a donation to help Muppet Central Radio. We have had multiple requests for people expressing an interest in financially supporting us. You can now make a secure donation through PayPal and help Muppet Central.

    Muppet Central Radio on Live365

    Our former Live365 stream will continue until the service shuts down on or after January 31, 2016. Please note that our Live365 and Radionomy streams will not be in-sync going forward. There are many elements of the forum and website that are branded towards Live365. We will be updating these in the days ahead.

    Thanks for your continued support during this significant transition.

    Here's some news for those of you who listen to Muppet Central Radio via TuneIn.

    As of last night, all Radionomy streams have been disabled on TuneIn. This is a result of a legal dispute. Sony is suing Radionomy and TuneIn is caught in the middle. In order to protect their interests, TuneIn has removed all Radionomy streams. This should be fixed when Sony and Radionomy (which is owned by another giant music company UMG) settle their dispute.

    As always, you can continue listening to Muppet Central Radio with Radionomy's apps or on their website at: http://www.radionomy.com/muppetcentralradio

    In the meantime, we're removing all TuneIn graphics for the time being.

    Radionomy is streamlining their business so they can focus on countries that have the biggest potential for growth in order to pay the increased cost of royalties.

    Consequently, Radionomy has now blocked access to their streams from some countries outside the US. As best we can tell this includes: Brazil, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Japan, Philippines, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Taiwan and Venezuela.

    Even though these countries represent a small part of our worldwide audience, it's still unfortunate. In these countries a specific message will be broadcast to the listeners when connecting to our station.
