Maybe that's why the stream paused for a minute.
I love Muppet Central Radio. I just heard "The Clown In Me" from Mr. Rogers. I love Mr. Rogers but why did you add him to Muppet Central Radio? He is not a Muppet. Thanks. No big deal I enjoyed hearing it but just don't understand how it fits with the theme of the station.
I was listening to Muppet Central Radio, again, during the time of tribute to Jerry, and since then, as well, when it struck me that there might be a way to stream it to mobile devices, like my iPhone. I looked for Live 365, and found the app and the station on there. Just wondering one thing, though. How does it choose the artwork for the songs?
I feel there's usually an appropriate image on the site in the upper-left corner, for whatever's playing at any given time, whether a specific album cover, or a generic image related to the source, if it's not something commercially released. However, on the app, I get odd stuff, like some dude's face, and it says "GONZOE", with a Parental Advisory sticker, for the redone "I'm Going To Go Back There Some Day", rather than the Muppets From Space soundtrack cover. I also once got something apparently by someone called Elmo, but certainly not a cute, furry, little red monster.
It's not a big deal, but I do find it oddly distracting when such images come up when I'm listening and driving. Thanks for any clarification and/or follow-up.
The album cover on the mobile app is served by Live365, and the version on the site is served by Muppet Central. Live365 usually serves The Wrong Version.
This is Phil's explanation for it from a few pages back:
Thanks for the responses. That's too bad. It's really off and off-putting. Too bad it can't come from the same source that this site uses.
When Fred Rogers passed away in 2003 we saw a huge response from fans and we began playing his music on Muppet Central Radio at that time. For any child who grew up in the 70's and 80's Sesame Street and Mister Rogers went hand-in-hand. The programs complimented each other beautifully and most Sesame Street fans were also Mister Rogers fans. Everyone enjoyed the music so much on MC Radio that many asked if it could stay and that's why it's continued to this day.
Here's a Mister Rogers tribute from Muppet fans back in 2003...
I understand now. Thanks for all your help. That is a great idea. Keep it going.
Hard to believe Fred Rogers is no longer with us either despite it's been 9 years since he past.
Sorry, but Tiny Planets doesn't belong on MCR. That's just how I feel after hearing it play a while ago.
If you're looking to add more CTW/SW-related programming songs, I'd much rather prefer hearing songs from either Encyclopedia, The Ghost of Faffner Hall, and/or Square One Television (especially their Carroway Street parody).
Just my two pennies worth.
You might want to erase the word Kermit at the end of "My Polliwog Ways - Kermit".
I thought Conga appeared on Sesame Street instead THS season 5.
They're different songs.
Out of curiosity and since it's basically October, when does Halloween music start appearing in the rotation?
It will begin in a few hours on October 1. It's all ready to go. Thanksgiving additions start November 1. We'll also begin our annual 24/7 Christmas music marathon the day after Thanksgiving on Friday November 23.
Do you have Rainbow Connection by Tracy Huang in the playlist?
No, we don't. If you'd like to contribute the song, please send it at the highest quality possible. E-mail me or start a private conversation.
Glad to see Christmas music will be playing at the normal time again, then...for some reason I think last year it didn't start until December 1.
I'm currently disappointed/frustrated with the RadioTerra free listener period ending abruptly at shorter intervals upon consecutive listenings. Regularly, on a weekday, I'll get about an hour and a half to two hours in my first session. Then when it ends, I'll go back to the link posted in one of Phillip's posts to fire it up again. And in that second period, it shuts off after an hour. Then today it stopped after fifty minutes and forty minutes in subsequent listenings. What bugs me is I have to use this method because there's no "Continue Listening" link at the RadioTerra station like at the Live365 page. Add that to the fact that RadioTerra has no volume controls nor playlist title/artist tracklists to display. What I'd really like is a merging of RadioTerra's instant play allowance with Live365's features.
When Radio Terra stops just refresh the page. Keystroke F5 on a PC.
There is a volume slider (up or down) and a stop button on the Radio Terra page. Sometimes the track titles scroll horizontally accross the screen. Other times though the page just says "loading."
Sounds like you need to listen 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.
