I finally listened to muppet radio i think it is awesome.
Anyone know anything about the Henson song Tick Tock and the LP The Countryside, including when it was recorded?
Here's some info on both "Tick-Tock Sick" and "The Countryside"...
Okay, I think I figured out a way to listen to MC Radio without having to pay the fee. Here is my question...in the window showing the playlist, there is a link that says "buy" next to the songs. If I click on it, does that mean I can save the song to my computer? And how much is each song?
Muppet Central Radio is free for everyone. You can pay to become a VIP if you want higher sound quality and ad-free listening. But everyone can listen with ads free of charge. That's the way it has always been. MC pays the royalties through Live365 so that you can listen for free.
Clicking on the "buy" link just takes you to Amazon, Best Buy or MSN if the album you are listening to is currently in print.
Hey Phil... Have some questions over in the Strange Occurrences thread, should I ask 'em here instead?
It's a piece where everybody introduces themselves and it just fades out. it doesn't indicate what LP it was off of. anyone know anything else on it?
Mike it's the 45s. As in the little ones. It's from the first record of Sesame Street but it wasn't inclued on the 33s and a 3rd. I have most of the little records. I would love to have it as an mp3 but can't at the moment.
The tag on the song says "Sesame Street Theme / Hello" meaning as was mentioned that it was from a 45 single. The "Hello" track you heard was only released once on the very first Sesame Street 45 and never released again. There is an alternate version of "People In Your Neighborhood" from 1970 that was released on a 45 as well but never on an LP. Both play on Muppet Central Radio.
Huuuum. Though This may sound like an odd question but why would they even release any singles especially with the SS cast saying hello to everyone? I can understand releasing certain types of songs but this one's strange.
It isn't strange when you realize it came out in 1970 when most kid's records were sold on 45's. This was the very first single so it's appropriate the cast introduced themselves. It's kind of different to hear it now in 2006 though because Sesame Street has become so iconic, but for 1970 it worked.
Sorry Phil. I meant that the Sesame Street Record was relesed again but not the single "Hello" that was mention. That's what I meant say.
No problem, I understood what you were trying to say.
Hey Phil... Was listening to MC Radio just now, and there was a song featuring Art Carney as Santa Claus and Thig and Thog. It's from The Great Santa Claus Switch, but the track listing said "Swtich" instead. Must be some sort of typo, thought you'd want to know about it so it can be corrected in time for the big MC Muppet Christmas music sing-along starting on the 19th. Hope this helps, have a good night.
Thanks this has been corrected. It won't go into effect though until a new playlist is launched which will probably happen by the end of the weekend.
Hey Phil... Couple of things.
Noticed that MC Radio and eBay aren't exactly compatible. When I have MC Radio playing and I go do a search on eBay, the song repeats like a needle stuck in a record's groove skipping until the eBay page finishes loading. The radio feed keeps playing, but it sticks like explained above.
Also, there was a song sung by my namesake where he was singing about things that count when he counts to The Count.
What was that song's title?
Hope to hear from you soon and have a great weekend.
The song is called "What Counts"
Thanks... That's one of the ones I've been trying to track down. Have a great weekend.
My problem concerns buffering. When the Muppet Central Radio window comes up, the volume bars are red and keep scrolling back and forth. When they finally stop scrolling and turn green the radio is behind by approx. three songs.
I tried the Live365 help section and figured it to be a buffering problem; I followed the advice given for Norton (I have version 2006 and the adblock section comes under AntiSpam), restarted my computer and tried the radio again and it was still doing the same thing. Any advice as to what's going on?
