Problem with Radio Margaritaville??

Postby MacPhin » April 18, 2012 9:24 am

For two days now I've been trying to listen to RM while at work. I have it bookmarked so I just click and it usually comes right up. All I've been getting it the rotating cirle thingy that says that it's tyring to connect, but never does. I've also tried typing it in myself, but no luck. Has anyone else been having problems connecting (not through Sirrus?)? I'm jones-ing here for my radio. Too quiet.

I used to have that problem with the Windows Media Player too. Switched to the Adobe Flash player and I haven't had a problem since...

Good luck!! :)

If you have itunes installed on your computer at work, it is listed under the streaming radio option. It is listed under reggae/island.

I don't have iTunes at work, but do at home, so no problem.
I will try a different media player while I'm here at work. I can't stand the quiet (and the guy in the office on the other side of my cube wall who keeps clearing his throat really loud every 2 minutes). :roll:

Give it a shot.

Didn't know the Itunes tip, thanks!

I haven't been able to use the WMP for a while and the Adobe Flash player crashes every 2 to 3 hours. I now live the page open so that I close the pop up, then click on the link and I'm back in action.

works perfectly fine on winamp
Did you hear the one about me being a punk?
Did you hear the one about me being a drunk?
Did you hear the one about me losing my nerve?
Or how I'm just another f**** sheep in the herd?
Did you hear the one about me giving a s***?
Cause if I ever did I don't remember it.

Given that RM seldom changes its setlist you're really not missing anything if you can't get it....... :roll:
On most days I say: "Wrinkles only go where the smiles have been...."
Sometimes I can only say: "There is no dumbass vaccine......"

If something or someone gets you down, just remember: "In a hundred years it all won’t matter.........."
