    Thanks for replying Phil. The reason I've been listening to the RadioTerra is because I get instant playing and when I go to the Live365 link, I get a message telling me I have to download something of theirs in order to have it reinstalled in my computer.

    Will try the F5 key command next time I'm listening and it stops.

    Actually, I've gone through the entire RadioTerra page at times but there's no tracklist display or volume controls or anything. All I get is a list of links to the various genres of music a person can listen to through their services.

    The Live365 VIP sounds good, but if I can save myself the cost by simply listening to it free, then I'll choose that option. As I recall, it wasn't really that often that I got commercial interruptions, only on Mondays or other days when they ran promotions for newly-debuting programs on NBC or the like.

    I think there's a glitch of some sort: The songs from "Elmo Says BOO!" have their album artwork on the radio page on the site, but aren't showing up on the forum.

    I've seen the Elmo Says Boo album art on the forum. If you see a problem though, please take a screen grab of the radio banner and e-mail it to me.

    Hey Folks,

    I just saw this album come up on my iPhone on the Live 365 app, when playing some song about Uncle Matt (Around The World, maybe?):
    http://www.amazon.com/Fraggle-Rock/dp/B004H6UJN6/ref=sr_1_31?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1349450978&sr=1-31&keywords=fraggle rock.

    Does anybody know what the deal with this is and how it could be called that? I just quickly pressed Play to see if it had anything to do with the show, but it just sounded like some DJ/techno thing. Over 7 minutes long, too. I just find it so odd what comes up for the art, sometimes, especially as there is genuine Fraggle stuff, and even specific albums that match the titles for other stuff that comes up, but I still see random art.

    On a side note, just wondering where MCR gets some of its good quality versions of certain songs? I am trying to amass songs from at least the major Muppet productions, ripping from my DVDs using a program, but it's not optimal, still, and I got Sweet Vacation and Chatanooga Choo-Choo from The Jim Henson Hour on YouTube, but the quality is crummy. Even this FR song I heard, today, seemed cool, and I'd like to own a copy, but it mentioned being from a UK soundtrack. Wondering how a clean digital copy was acquired. Thanks for any help/tips/advice.

    Here's what I saw yesterday - "Elmo's Says BOO!" was playing. The artwork appeared on the radio page like so:


    And here's what was on the side of the forum:

    Thank you Shane, that helps. This has been corrected. Elmo Says Boo will now be displayed on the forum home page.

    By the way, what I was referring was the MC Radio banner that displays before or after posts. The art was displayed there correctly. The forum home pulls a larger image so that's why one worked and the other didn't.

    I'm pretty sure that Live365 tries to connect each song to Amazon somehow and if the song isn't there, it finds the closest thing in title or album.

    And the songs sound so good because Phillip gets the material in the highest quality available, then edits them to make them sound clean (removing hissing and such). The end result does sound incredible.

    Should "Dust In The Wind" be called "Beaker's Ballad" instead?
  9. Oscarfan

    Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    The video's called "Beaker's Ballad," the actual song is "Dust in the Wind".

    Also, playing the entire Frog Prince album? Goodness!

    Is something wrong with the RadioTerra link? Just went there and clicked on it, and I'm not getting a signal/playlist at all. :(

    I'm quite sure The Muppet Show album doesn't have "Ripe This".
    Not sure if it's a album display error or title error, 'cause I'm not listening.
  12. Oscarfan

    Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    I'm pretty sure it's one of the bits inbetween songs.

    I'm late replying, but I agree...nothing seems to ever come up when I try the RadioTerra link anymore.

    It still works but the Radio Terra stream does time-out more frequently now. You'll want to refresh or reload this page to get it streaming again when it stops.

    As I mentioned before, the most reliable way to listen is with the Live365 Desktop player (formally called Radio365 player). When you download you'll get a free 5-day trial. Try it out. That's really the best way to listen. You don't have to deal with a website at all and get zero ads and music non-stop when you're a VIP. Actually, VIP membership is on sale now if you like the Live365 Desktop player.

    See, when I click your link for RadioTerra, I end up on a blank RadioTerra page rather than the station.
  16. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Yeah, I get the default RadioTerra page as well, sometimes with only links to all the different genres they offer. But since Phillip mentioned the F5 key refresher trick I've been listening happily. If I don't recognize a song or it's source, I just click on the "Forum" link back here to refresh the forum's main page and then get the desired info. So I'm pretty much okay with RadioTerra now. Thanks for adding the Emmet Otter songs also. :)

    Can I make a suggestion? During the Christmas music session starting later this month, is it possible to throw in a some non-Christmas, but winter-relevant songs? Like "All Dressed Up", "I'm Cold", The "Ookyook" song, Bob's "Snowflakes" from the new OS DVD, etc.
  18. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Actually, I know that "Snow" from Sesame Mucho is pretty much reserved for the Christmas music marathon if that helps.
  19. Hubert

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    This is a very unrelated question to the past two posts, but I have to wonder while I'm thinking of it: why is the station currently being called the "Thanksgiving playlist"? I haven't quite figured out what's different about it from the regular songs...
  20. Phillip

    Phillip Administrator Staff Member

    Yes, absolutely as long as it's obvious in the lyrics that it's a winter related song. Several of these already play over Christmas and we'll consider adding the others this year as well. Feel free to compile a list of winter songs you'd like to see added and we'll play as many of them as possible.
