    Not everything is Muppets. Some can be things from movies, and even TV shows by Sesame Workshop and others.

    Of course it was. Which is why MCR needs to get fixed.

    Question: Why does the track listing skip some songs?

    Been listening to MCR and the last few songs listed at RadioNomi are as follows:
    "Trying And Trying Again" (Harvey Williams).
    "Lady Be Good" (Floyd, Dr. Teeth, Zoot).
    "Dinosaur Train" (Show Theme).
    "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" (Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby).
    "Heaven On A Heartbeat" (Cats In Boots).
    "let Your Feelings Show" (Gordon/Roscoe Orman).

    First of all, how'd two non-Muppet songs get thrown into the tracklist, which never aired at all?
    Secondly, the list completely skipped "The Train Back Home" (George Burns and Rowlf) that came after "Let Your Feelings Show".

    Hope this helps sort things out. :confused:

    The non-Muppet songs in the track list are because of this issue from a few months ago. They actually are Muppet songs. Radionomy's system is just changing the track info. We're doing what we can and are still hopeful this will be fixed in the future.

    Sometimes songs are skipped if the programmed schedule is running long. That's my hunch as to what happened.

    Looks like you skipped the Jerry tribute again this year.. still holding out hope that you'll pull something together next time.

    also, there's two other Fraggle cover albums besides the one with Kyle Andrews' "Count on Me" that I just heard. Will you be able to add them to your rotation? And do you have anything from the recent Muppet series besides the Christmas stuff?

    We're already playing the first two Fraggle cover albums. We should have "Here to There" soon and will add those tracks in the near future.

    Yes, we're playing some songs from the series in addition to the Jack White single.

    Was listening late last night and there were a lot of songs themed around sleep / night / space etc. Deliberate move or just a coincidence?

    It's deliberate dayparting. There are many songs that play at specific times of the day based on content like morning, lunch, night, etc. so that you hear particular songs around the time of day that you're experiencing.

    Keep in mind, this is based on CST/EST time, so the further your timezone is away from this, the less impact this will have.

    With regards to adding the Fraggle Rock cover album “Here To There”...you may not want to air the version of “Why” from the album on the station. I bought the album last week, but listened to it fully for the first time today. Imagine my surprise when halfway through thru the song an f-bomb was dropped. I rolled the track back to make sure I wasn’t just hearing things - but it was there, plain as day.
    I imagine my fellow listeners don’t want to hear that kind of language in a Fraggle song any more than I do. I’ve already deleted the track off my iPod. I just wanted to give y’all a heads up, in case you weren’t already aware.

    why was Muppet Central Radio playing Songs from the Tron Soundtrack??? That is not muppets.

    ah, this is the first time I've heard about this! when did you start?

    Dayparting has been in effect since we joined Radionomy in January 2016.

    There are also many seasonal songs that play throughout the year as well. Holiday songs have been in rotation since the station debuted eighteen years ago.

    So why is MC Radio playing Bing Crosby's version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"? Like, it's 9 months til Christmas. :confused:
  16. fragglevision

    fragglevision Well-Known Member

    It's not actually there. It's just listed due to a glitch in the system.

    Oh okay. Thanks for telling me.

    So why is this track playing?

    PeopleMover - Tron Light Cycles

    Is it even related to Muppets?
  19. SesameFever

    SesameFever Well-Known Member

    it is like I know the Muppets are Disney now but now MCR is playing anything Disney not just muppet releated stuff

    Could be either a glitch or dayparting.
