    We’re getting ready for the holiday season. Christmas will be arriving at Muppet Central the Friday after Thanksgiving. We’ll be rolling out several features to make your Christmas merrier and more Muppety.

    (1) Christmas Music – Beginning this Friday, we’ll start our annual Muppet Christmas Music Marathon on Muppet Central Radio. More than 350 Christmas tunes can be heard non-stop through the holidays. As a special gift for all of you loyal listeners, Muppet Central Radio will begin streaming at 128k stereo with this years Christmas Music Marathon, a significant increase in sound quality. See this thread for songs we're still searching for if you can help.

    You can listen to Muppet Central Radio 24 hours a day on Live365 (available via the web and Live365 VIP Apps for computer, phone, tablet, Roku, Tivo and other devices) and Radio Terra (available via the web).

    (2) Christmas Menus - Our annual Muppet Christmas menus will begin arriving this Friday as well and will continue leading up to 2015. All of these animated menus are beautifully designed by James Carroll. The menus will be changing every few days and can be viewed from the Muppet Central home page.

    (3) Christmas Presents - In order to make finding Muppety gifts easier, you can shop from the official Muppets store or buy any item directly from Amazon.com. Check it out for lots of Muppety releases and specials. Find a Muppet gift for every frog, pig or bear on your list. Begin your Christmas shopping today.

    By purchasing any item from Amazon.com through Muppet Central and any item from eBay through Muppet Central, you greatly help us keep the site, radio and forum running every day and every month. By doing your Christmas shopping through Muppet Central you can help us have the resources to do even more next year. You can also help support MC by customizing your very own Muppet Whatnot or buying other toys through this link from FAO Schwarz.

    Thanks in advance to everyone for your help. We're excited about what's ahead for 2015, so please use MC links whenever you make on-line purchases to help us make these upgrades as soon as possible.

    Radio Terra is playing fine here. Are you using this link? Check to be sure you've installed the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player and let us know how it goes. The Radio Terra stream will end about every 30 minutes or so. If you refresh your browser it will restart again.

    The most reliable way to listen is with one of the Live365 VIP Apps for computer, phone, tablet, Roku, Tivo and other devices). There's a free seven-day trial if you want to try these out.

    Quick question, what production is "The Missing Menorah" from? The listing didn't say. I did recognize Grover as part of the singing cast though.

    It's from Shalom Sesame and sung by Anneliese, Grover and The Shalom Sesame Cast.

    Yep, MCR's audio quality has been improved. No longer do the Dinosaur Train nor Antarctica songs throw the station off-kilter when they air as part of the musical merry-thon. Good job Phil.

    Music Suggestion: Bob has a song about snow in one of the episodes in the second volume of "Sesame Street Classics" on all the streaming stuff (it should be the one called "Sherlock Hemlock Investigates" or something like that)

    Yes, from the 1970's Bob's songs "Snow" and "Hi Friend" are playing. From the 1980's is a song from the street called "Snowflakes."

    Something I'd point out is that not all songs list the source they're from if you look at the "Now Playing" listing on the forum's main page. For example, the new version of "Do You Hear What I Hear?" sung by Elmo and Rosie O'Donnell in front of a live audience.

    I listened to the station for a while maybe a week or so ago, but now it won't work on any of my devices. Audio skips and lags and the songs run together. I've tried both links, too, over a few days.

    Is anyone else having problems? Last night one of the sites was down for maintenance/server problems, so I figured maybe the problems are on their end and not mine. And I don't think it's my internet. I mean, if I can stream HD video I should be able to listen to an online radio station.

    Try listening again today. Live365 has fixed the buffering issue affecting some users.
