    I've got Minnie Driver's "Everything I've Got In My Pocket" on. Just a second ago, it was Wendy Carlos's "By Request". How about you?

    Right now I'm listening to Jennifer Saunder's version of "Holding Out for a Hero", just a minute, it was "If You Don't Know Me By Now" by The Blue Notes. Then before THAT it was "Monster in the Mirror" by Grover.

    Ooh! I like these kinds of threads!

    *Realizes she should probably be listening to something when she posts here*

    *...And puts on "The Trial" from The Wall.*

    I'm listening to Rowlf singing "Halfway Down the Stairs". Now I'm listening to, um... Marlo Thomas, Kermit, and the Muppets singing "Something for Everyone". I love Muppet Central Radio, don't you?

    OK, new music. Right now it's Stevie Wonder's "Songs In The Key Of Life". In a moment, Larry the Cable Guy's new album.

    I would if I was able to play it. I'm not getting no Active X thing, that stuff's dangerous!

    Just so you know, I can listen to MCR through iTunes and I didn't have to download anything.

    I wasn't listening to anything when I opened this thread, but I just opened iTunes. Let's see what plays. Ooh, Cannonball by Supertramp. Not one of my favourite songs by them, but still good.

    I still would love to know how you accomplished that. What genre is MC radio listed under in iTunes?
  9. MrsPepper

    Now I'm listening to As long as you're Mine from the musical Wicked. I have Shuffle turned on.

    Oh, it's not in the radio section, it's in my playlist. 0___o Umm, let's see. I have firefox, in case it matters - Oooh, Candle in the Wind now - And, if I remember properly, I tried to play MC radio by clicking the play button on the MC Radio page. Random boxes popped up and things happened that I didn't realise, and bom, it was playing through iTunes.
    Oh geez, I wish I could be a bigger help. It's really useful though, I just open it up and find it on my playlist and press play. Oh, and, so you know, I have a PC. I ended up with iTunes when I tried to update Quicktime, and found it's a really good program so I use it all the time now. But if you have a Mac, your version may be different than mine, I'm not sure how that works..
    Here, I'll take a minute just now to see if I can figure out how I got the station on iTunes. I'll be right back!

    Thanks very much! I got it, for anyone with a Mac who wants to listen through iTunes, just click on the play button on this page and it will automatically download a "hot" iTunes playlist. Just create a folder in iTunes labeled "MC Radio" or something similar and then drag the playlist (which will be labeled "play.pls") into the folder and it will be recognized as a radio stream by iTunes. That's it, enjoy!

    FISH'N'WOLFE, I figured it out! I did it again just now, with a different Live365 station, and it put the station on my iTunes list. This is what I did.

    1. Go to MCR radio and click the big yellow play button (with the black horn).
    2. This caused a pop-up box with the songs that were playing.
    3. Then, a dialogue box popped up asking what I wanted to open the stream with. I selected on the dialogue box that I want to open it with iTunes, and voila, it's playing in your playlist.

    Here's a screenshot.

    Wonderful, thanks again MrsPepper. Now anyone Mac or PC will be able to listen through iTunes.

    Oh, excellent, so it helped then? Great! I'm glad.
    And you're very welcome. Hee, we are a team. Together, not even the likes of iTunes can stop us listening to MCR!
  14. FISH'N'WOLFE

    FISH'N'WOLFE New Member

    Yes, it worked perfect! :D We are a team indeed!

    Well, now I can hear Muppet Central, but unfortunately, it won't let me play with iTunes. It didn't even get me a choice to play with.
  16. MrsPepper

    What browser are you using? I had Firefox and it gave me a choice. I don't know if the browser would make a difference. THere's probably an option somewhere on your computer to pick the default program to play those kind of files. Maybe if you set it that way on iTunes, it'll play there insted onf through the browser? I'm clever enough when it comes to getting by on computers, but I don't know enough to be able to troubleshoot, exactly..
    D'Snowth, if you already have that thing/plugin/player/whatever downloaded, it probably recognises that and so it doesn't give you a choice to play it in iTunes. Maybe.

    Oops, oh well, I'll just have uninstall it!

    Oh, and I'm using Bellsouth.
  18. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well that didn't help, I still can't choose what to play it on.

    I'm listening to "Rosanna" by Toto. Great 80's song.
