Hi,
Wonder if anyone can help?
My Zappa Radio is not working anymore, I didn't change anything, but,
when I click on the Icon I created or try to enter Zappa Radio from the
main site, I get the page and all the info "what's playing now", but no tuneage! (sound)
Didn't know where to post this and can't find any sort of "support" listing,
so thought I'd try here, hope it's OK.

Thanks

I'm not having any problems. I might suggest deleting your .pls file and getting it again.

Well, the file should be in your download folder (where files are put when you download them.) Delete it and go to zappa radio again and click on play, it should prompt you to download it again.

It will work with google chrome(got too be installed seaching for Google with internet explorer no good the play button don't show up)go too the download in downloads if don't play after clicking,and right click and open with Realplayer works.If i remember correct winamp will work and give the names of the song which realplayer do not which means just after look on zappa radio too check song titles.

Did Gail not pay the owners of the official catalog for broadcast? Shut it down! Thievery!

Thanks for the suggestions folks.
Can't find the .pls file to delete it, it's not in my "dowload" folder
or anywhere else as far as I can tell, did a search for".pls" nothing
was found, so, this is a mystery.
I did try with Chrome and that did work, but for some reason moves
to another screen when playing (VLC screen) so can't see the Zappa Radio page,
but I do hear the music.
Will continue to try and figure out why it's not working through internet explorer.

Thanks

It will not work with internet explorer lots of other stuff from the What's New page wont neither Mikey Admin posted before IE is made by the Devil in his words.I have a windows phone and it does exact the same as pc no play button and the song that is being played don't show up till the song if over.

It gone too the dogs since it can be paid for on 365 http://www.live365.com/index.live Cheap but full of ads also another bill even tells what song is being played also the last 4 not last 2 like Google.
