Well, the stream just survived the pool chemical ad.

However, the "now playing" window is stuck. I never did hear "West Side Story."

Maybe it was a bad fish?

I had the same problem starting at 6 PM Eastern last night and gave up after a half an hour of trying.

I can't even get a play window this morning. The throbber just sits there and throbs and nothing happens.

Hey, cool! Music!

I left a note on the request line, Dan said they would look into it, and now music! Excellent!

Bagpipes in the morning. Hector the Hero's gonna play 'em for me.

Another stream failure :mad: during the pool chemical commercial. Methinks there's something wrong with it.

Same for me. Same ad, same repeat, same hang point. Three times.

Reported it on the requests line, getting annoying here. Drat all hackers, anyway.

It's working again. Just please don't play that pool chemical ad any more before 6PM, OK?

The pool commercial will return at one point. It's money folks. But until we find the glitch in the pool spot that crashes the stream we have "disconnected" the spot from the system. Let us know if you see further problems.

YRH, I know full well how radio stations make their money. But the pool chemical commercial seems remarkably associated with me losing the stream, which is why I requested it not being played, at least until there's some indication that it's not the culprit.

But of the four times I've heard the ad over the past couple of days, three times I've lost the stream during it. I can't say if the same is true for other listeners, but if I can't listen to the stream, I'm certainly not listening to the other ads, either.

One tech problem that remains for me, the Adsertion ads are at about twice the volume of the music. My fellow cube trolls get blasted when an ad comes on. I know from my speaker settings that it is the music that is quieter rather than the ads being louder.

The ads you are hearing are not Adsertions, those are ours. (We sell ads through Adsertion and in house.) The volume difference is not because of the ads but because of an anolog issue Adsertion is working on. They have told us all problems will be fixed by tomorrow morning. We shall see...

I have the same problem as BigJon; the ads are louder than the music and the music is louder than the DJ ("DJ"? is that right?) any way, if I turn Nicole up loud enough, the music is too loud and the ad blows my hair back.

The B.com music stream has dried up again (4/30 a.m.) in this drained swamp called the Mississippi Delta. Is everyone else being inundated with classical floods?

Will finish the day with DSCH No. 5 via CD and hope for an uninterrupted flow next week.

Ok, so I have stream now, but it doesn't sound as good as usual.. Almost as if it's in Mono or something? Anyone else's stream sound that way? It's at least loud again, though.

Hi Benito-

It's in analog. Adsertion is working on an analog issue that will make the stream sound odd. We did what we could in house but we are waiting on Adsertion to fix their end. Keep your fingers crossed... we are!
