    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 400 Christmas tunes can be heard non-stop through the holidays. 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 via Radionomy (available on the web and through Radionomy Apps for computer, phone, streaming devices and more). If you'd like to listen directly in your media player, download and save this direct link. If you'd like to promote our Christmas music on social media, you can use this short url: bit.ly/muppetradio

    (2) Christmas Menus - Our annual Muppet Christmas menus will begin arriving this Friday as well and will continue leading up to 2016. 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 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.

    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. Thanks in advance to everyone for your help. We're excited about what's ahead for 2017, so please use MC links whenever you make on-line purchases to help us make future upgrades as soon as possible.

    Something I've noticed listening on RadioNomi.... Let's say you have the current "Last Played Tracks" starting with "I Saw Three Ships" with :batty: and Ty Pennington. You keep listening for some while, about past a segment of commercials and into a second block of music and a song comes on that you don't recognize. Now if you're like me, you probably have a secondary browser window open to work on other internet stuff so you're not following the update of the list of songs played. And when that unrecognized song comes up you want to know what it is, but when you tab back over to the window with the list, it states "Delivering Christmas" as the "Last Played Track" which preceded the unrecognized song and stays stuck on "Delivering Christmas" even after you try refreshing the RadioNomi page.

    Other than that, I'm loving the annual MCR Christmas music merrython. :jim:

    Ed, try downloading this direct link to Muppet Central Radio (right click and "save file as" on your computer). You can open this directly in your media player without a browser. Many media players update the track info automatically. VLC Media Player is particularly much more reliable updating track info than Radionomy's on-line flash player. Hope it helps.

    Er, did something happen to the station overnight? Just asking because now I get a "Service unavailable" message when I use my bookmarked link. :(

    Radionomy's site is currently down, so their flash player is not functioning. They are working on the issue and it will be fixed soon.

    In the meantime, the stream is still playing fine elsewhere and is accessible with the direct link method posted yesterday. The stream also appears fine on Roku, Apple TV and other devices as well.

    Radionomy's site and all flash players are now functioning as normal.

    Listened to MC Radio last night. Loved the Christmas music, it was great. As are the new menus on Muppet Central's home page - very nice indeed! :)

    Christmas at Muppet Central? Why can't it be Hannukah or Kwanzaa or all of the holidays at Muppet Central? :confused:

    Celebrating Christmas doesn't automatically imply anyone is being left out.

    Diggin' it as usual! Just a couple of things:
    • The crossfades; some are better than others. I don't know what you can do about it though.
    • The one version of "Delivering Christmas," from that one random Christmas CD, lists Jesse L. Martin as an artist; he's not in that version. His vocals are replaced by Bill Barretta.

    Crossfades are being worked on. About 20-25 new songs will also be added throughout the week.

    Yes, this has been updated.

    Funny how I should get an email about Christmas music on Muppet Central Radio as I had logged on to MCR before I opened my inbox. I am enjoying it so far.

    this might be a bit off topic but I think that version was a demo that either the Postal Service or the compilers of the CD somehow got a hold of and included in the compilation.

    Quick question, there was a version of The Twelve Days of Christmas that just aired with the SST Muppets featuring their current performers that was just the 12-verse on down to the end. The cast included:
    :batty: 12,
    Baby Bear 11,
    Telly 10,
    :wisdom: 9,
    Rosita 8,
    Abby 7,
    :p 6,
    :insatiable: 5,
    :super: 4,
    :( 3,
    The Two-Headed Monster 2,
    :laugh: 1.

    Where did this track come from? And can I please have a MUP3 copy? Thanks. :)

    It was a promo for "Once Upon a SS Xmas."

    (And #11 was Bert and #3 was Oscar)

    11 sounded like Bert, but I also thought he got repeated at 3, so I wasn't rully sure especially since this was the first time I heard it.

    Could you send me this as a MUP3? Thanks. :)
