That's under Easy Listening like it is on the site. I'm not sure we have enough in that genre to do a full station for it.

I think those little "Thanks for listening to Newgrounds Radio!" messages leave a lot of room to throw in some voice actors. For what it's worth, I volunteer. Loving NG Radio by the way. Great feature, thanks so much.

I'm guessing genre detection is solely based on the authors' tags and such? Tuning into the metal station, treated to 5 straight electronic tracks before getting one.

I love it!!
N.G. is now my favorite websight of all time.

T.V, Netflix, Garbage Youtube Prank bros, and lame Last Fm are now all replaced for me.

It's straight reading books, making my own music, and Newgrounds now!
I get sick tunes, made by people; real people. New music daily with pop up function as well as a link to their song!
I get wicked Original Stories and art!

And comedy for that daily laughter.

You guys did it, I friggin love you all.
Jamming to the Heavy Metal Station right now, and could not be more happy.

EVERYTHING'S ORIGINAL!! SUCK IT BIG SOULLESS COMMERCIALIZED PROGRAMING !

That and favorite. While we're at it, let's have a list of songs previously played (like Bandcamp Weekly), so people don't miss out on any chances to see what song finished playing.

Great idea. Maybe have a (somewhat) rare funny message thrown in from each voice actor.

You know what, scratch that. Don't make it like Bandcamp Weekly. Keep it as it is. The limitations force me to appreciate it more and make it feel like a real radio station.

Same here. The music won't be so mainstream now, but I'm really digging the new finesse! Easy listening.

Feature suggestion: how about a link to the radio in the AP? Seems a bit hard to find as is.

Also, that 'Radio Support & Feedback / Visit Newgrounds!' feels a bit superfluous on a pop-up IMHO. Thoughts on a 'Close window´ link instead?

Is anyone else having issues where it randomly stops playing? I've tried it on 3 different computers and get the same issue.

No, haven't had any issues, well, ever. All seems to be streaming fine. Actually, it works better than the standard NG player for me, which freezes if I don't disable ads -- and I refuse to disable them with the state of things here.

As for possible additions, I'd love a station for podcasts. I often listen to them while relaxing, drawing, etc. So far, I'm loving what the radio has to offer, though. Another thing I think would be really cool would be occasional featured artist ads, etc. It seems to work with mainstream services like spotify. If kept short, they wouldn't be annoying. The talk show idea brought up earlier is another goodie, and it would be super cool.

Mostly, I just wanted to stop by and make my appreciation known. This is probably the most awesome thing that's happened in a while. I mean, no more queuing up a workout playlist; it's all here. :)

I don't think the site notified me of these replies so I missed them.

There was a bug with the radio software there for a while that caused this. It was fixed pretty quickly.

@Mike (who wrote the standard player) very generously helped me get this fixed a couple of years ago. Let me know if you still experience freezing.

As for possible additions

Podcasts might not be too hard to get set up. Ads were planned but I don't know that that will ever happen now (I'm no longer actively developing radio).

Mostly, I just wanted to stop by and make my appreciation known. This is probably the most awesome thing that's happened in a while. I mean, no more queuing up a workout playlist; it's all here. :)

Thanks, I appreciate that.

Works great!

The only other things I can think of are to be able to search by tag, or to just add more genres -- or maybe even date ranges, or "classics". There's tons of cool stuff that I think could be done over time if you ever get around to updating again, and I love that I don't have to make a playlist to go through a station I like, or really ever touch it unless there's something I don't enjoy. Good stuff.

Does this add to the downloads or plays of the tracks it grabs?

Yeah there are a LOT of things that would be cool and that can be done. Just about anything you can think of when it comes to mixing up stations, doing requests, having time based radio shows, etc.

Not yet but that's the plan.

I notice you have mini commercials even, which are cute. Reminds me of Casualty and NG Bytesize almost with little easter eggs. You've really got a cool thing going here.

Time based shows sounds pretty cool. Perhaps in the future a setting for that -- to more emulate your average radio, talk shows early morning interspersed with music. I wonder if the Radio really takes off if we could even have live shows. I'm sure that's been discussed before.

Not yet but that's the plan.

Cool. What would it take to make that happen? I ask mostly just because your radio player doesn't crash my old ass PC video card like the NG player does, hahahah.

If you could get it to work with our stats, my head is thinking perhaps NG radio could be further adapted and shared around the web to bring not only more traffic to NG's AP but also to perhaps run small non-intrusive ads to bring in a little extra revenue while we're at it. Every little thing helps.

Hello. At present only the site https://radio.newgrounds.com/ works for me. (Very likely to be an old browser issue. 25/2/2017)

1. Could you put up the alternative link of the radio dedicated site on the html(?) NG radio page? (I only learned from another user and putting up the link might help others who would either prefer it or need it like in my case.)

2. Also, could you maybe put up a radio icon at the top of site?[A cool classic gold icon.

Maybe even a chat icon next to it. And a subscriber star icon next to it?(That would be a link to the secret subscriber forum. Just because a secret subscriber forum is cool.) Pleeeesssseee. Pretty, pretty, pretty please?]

Because, as it is, NG Radio is hard to find. Also a radio-link-icon on the audio page would be great!

3. Also more importantly, could you make it easy to give rating to songs, directly from the radio? Because if I open up the song link a)it might stop the music, b) the music on the link will play also, 3) too many clicks involved.

A few ideas? I guess you could show a music history page on "https://radio.newgrounds.com/", like somafm has, and people could just rate it once they've heard it, if they wish.
You could also include a download and/or buy option. Which would be a good idea on a history page because then they can take their time to decide.
You could also add an 'add to wish list'(aka, personal playlist?) or include the 'favourite' option (icon) in this history page.
By history page, I mean a history of what, say, NG Mix played. Not a history of what the user listened to.

Reader's note: Please read the quoted parts.
