We're getting ready for the holiday season. Christmas will be arriving at Muppet Central the Monday after Thanksgiving. We'll be rolling out several features to make your Christmas merrier and more Muppety.

(1) Christmas Music – Beginning on Monday, we'll start our annual Muppet Christmas Music Marathon on Muppet Central Radio. More than 500 Christmas tunes can be heard non-stop through the holidays. See this thread for songs we're still searching for if you can help.

Listen via TorontoCast:

Listen via Tune-In:

Listen via Apple Siri and Apple Music:
"Siri, play Muppet Central Radio."
"Siri, play Muppet Central Radio on TuneIn."

Listen via Amazon Alexa:
"Alexa, play Muppet Central Radio."
"Alexa, play Muppet Central Radio on TuneIn."

Listen via Google Nest and Google Home:
"Play Muppet Central Radio."
"Play Muppet Central Radio on TuneIn."

Promote Muppet Central Radio with this short url:
bit.ly/muppetradio

(2) Christmas Memories - We're celebrating the "Muppet 25 Days of Christmas" on social media on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Be sure to follow us to receive these daily posts. Also, share these posts on-line to help spread Muppet cheer during the holiday season.

(3) Christmas Menus - Our annual Muppet Christmas menus will begin arriving this Monday as well and will continue leading up to 2022. All of these animated menus are beautifully designed by James Carroll. The menus will be changing every few days and can be viewed from the Muppet Central home page.

(4) Christmas Presents - By purchasing any item from Amazon.com through Muppet Central and any item from eBay through Muppet Central, you greatly help us keep the site, radio and forum running every day and every month. By doing your Christmas shopping through Muppet Central you can help us have the resources to do even more next year. Thanks in advance to everyone for your help. We're excited about what's ahead for 2022, so please use MC links whenever you make on-line purchases to help us make future upgrades as soon as possible.



Please Note: Our plan is to play Christmas music non-stop 24/7 through December 25, however, if we unexpectedly experience a power outage the station will begin playing our regular playlist temporarily. We'll get the Christmas music back on-line as soon as possible. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

How does this still work when Flash is dead?

I'm loving the customary classics and new additions to this year's musical merrython.

Also, nice touch adding jingling bells to the standard Radio 1-2-3 jingle. Maybe similar nods can be added for next year's traditions like a short music vamp of Rainbow Connection for the Jim Henson/Steve Whitmire day, thunderbolt for Halloween, and/or an instrumental vamp of Sing for Carroll Spinney day. Just a suggestion, feel free to take it or not. :fanatic:

Something I would suggest... On the "Now Playing" list, you have the song/sketch's title, followed by the characters or group responsible for singing each entry, and then I would recommend replacing the link to "Buy this album" with the source where each song/sketch comes from as that would help forum members identify things they might request in either of the forum's MUP3's threads with better specificity. :busy:

Thank you Ed. A lot of work went into this year's updates. It's always a delight to see how many people enjoy the Muppet Christmas music each year.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

oh! what about a harp for Valentine's, or thunderbolt (again) for the Jerry Nelson day?
