    I have a request. Can you play The Way That You're Feelin' Today from Bear in the Big Blue House?

    Is this a 24/7 station on TuneIn? I would like to listen to it tonight. Is there a way I have to find the station on Tunein? I'm use to going on location or the type of music I feel like when it comes to TuneIn.

    Thanks for the request. Unfortunately we do not have a copy of this episode from the second season. I've sent you a private message to see if you can help us track this down. There are many Bear episodes not released on DVD that we'd like to have if you or anyone else can help.

    Yes, Muppet Central Radio is a 24/7 station. Start a Radionomy app or go to their website and search for "Muppet" and you'll find us. "Follow" our station and it will be added to your account for quick access. We hope you enjoy the music.

    Well, since I finally upgraded the Radionomy app on my iPod Touch a couple of days ago, I can start listening to Muppet Central Radio!

    Here's some news for those of you who listen to Muppet Central Radio via TuneIn.

    As of last night, all Radionomy streams have been disabled on TuneIn. This is a result of a legal dispute. Sony is suing Radionomy and TuneIn is caught in the middle. In order to protect their interests, TuneIn has removed all Radionomy streams. This should be fixed when Sony and Radionomy (which is owned by another giant music company UMG) settle their dispute.

    As always, you can continue listening to Muppet Central Radio with Radionomy's apps or on their website at: http://www.radionomy.com/muppetcentralradio

    In the meantime, we're removing all TuneIn graphics for the time being.

    Not to be rude to you or anything, but I think that what is going on right now between Sony and Radionomy is wicked ridiculous.

    Radionomy is streamlining their business so they can focus on countries that have the biggest potential for growth in order to pay the increased cost of royalties.

    Consequently, Radionomy has now blocked access to their streams from some countries outside the US. As best we can tell this includes: Brazil, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Japan, Philippines, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Taiwan and Venezuela.

    Even though these countries represent a small part of our worldwide audience, it's still unfortunate. In these countries a specific message will be broadcast to the listeners when connecting to our station.

    Just wanted to say, I've started listening to Muppet Central Radio, and it's absolutely amazing. Excellent work; it must've taken a long time to make this, and I thank you for it! :)

    Was expecting there to be a marathon of all of Jerry Nelson's songs today for the anniversary of when he died, but it doesn't seem to be happening :(. I figure the Radionomy switch might have had something to do with it but it's sad nonetheless.

    Actually, I was expecting that marathon to take place on the weekend. Since it didn't happen last Saturday/Sunday I'm still hopeful it'll happen this Saturday/Sunday into part of Monday. :batty:

    When will the marathon be happening? And why isn't it happening today?

    That's not for me to decide, you're better asking Phillip as he runs the radio station playlist as well.

    Yes, this is a time-intensive task with Radionomy to set up. We do hope to have Jerry Nelson and Jim Henson radio tributes again next year. Thanks for your understanding.

    In fact, soon we'll begin getting ready for our annual Muppet Christmas Music Marathon. Our holiday rotation will be re-worked for Radionomy from the ground-up. We'll have to go through a thorough internal testing process to ensure that everything is ready to go when Christmas music begins the Friday after Thanksgiving.
