Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
Just a Question does anyone know if there is a schedule for the station? I have been listening in my car and it seems like I keep getting the same show over and over on a loop.I haven't figured out how to listen to the hd channel in the car yet .
Truth be told, we're totally rebuilding MCR on Live 365. We let it go when we picked up the HD stream, then picked it up again just for November and December and for the World's Largest Christmas Party. Jay is working on new stuff for 2013 BUT you may have to be a VIP member of Live 365 to access it all, which is another reason why we dropped them. More details coming soon.
That makes sense I was just curious . I'm hoping to be able to figure out a way to play the HD channel in the car
We will try to research that on our side.
Honestly, the radio side of things is a huge cost burden for us. And it takes a lot of time too. We still feel it is an important element that we want to grow though. I will be handling the MCR-HD side of things -- which is really just a shoutcast for now -- while Jay will head up MCR on Live 365. There will be some cross over between the two but by design there will not be much. They will be very different.
Feedback about what we offer and what we SHOULD offer would be greatly appreciated.
One thing I would love to have is a morning segment that is for meditation/devotional/morning coffee/whatever a person's quiet time is. Because I've never found that, other than a local station for 3 weeks in December, I have my own playlist that I use.
This is more like instrumental Christmas, soft music. Because I have trouble focusing my mind, I have found that soft instrumental music helps me when I'm doing my morning reading. Of course my instrumental music is Christmas music. Maybe others would enjoy something similar. If that is of interest, I could send you or one of the DJ's a sample of what I'm talking about.

Nothing is more important than the soundtrack!!!
