Listener Increase by 25% oever the last 5 days!

Brian_Griffin Hello all… just wanted to say we have increased our listening audience a good 22% over the last 5 days!

That’s “Very Sexy Baby”

Not sure what caused the increase, but Thanks to all the loyal listeners and all the new ones too!

Now go make yourself a double Martini, The Weekend Has Arrived!

 



New HTML5 Audio Player

html5audio

Hello all, we have a new Audio Player to listen to The Lounge Sound. It uses HTML5 so you will be able to listen for days on end with no freezing vs the Flash Player.

You can go here Listen Live Page and select the “New HTML5 Player” and off you go.

It would seem though that most of you use other players like Winamp or iTunes, but if you want to use a web player than this new HTML5 player is for you.

However, it does not work with Firefox(shame on your Mozilla), but Internet Explorer and Chrome work just fine!

Enjoy!


Dean Martin & Tony Bennett

Singing various melodies in one sitting, very cool…

The amazing Norah Jones, an entire concert,  55 mins long.

This is a 3 Martini session for sure!

 


Somthing Stupid Cover – The Piano Shack

Had to post this, I was looking around for a video of Michael Buble and Reese Witherspoon, and came across these guys, not bad at all..



Intermittent outages.

Hello all just to let you know we put in place our backup radio server and were doing some testing this morning, you might have been disconnected once or twice for 30 seconds or so. All should be working fine now; If one server or network fails the other will take over seamlessly.

Thanks for your patients! And it’s Martini Friday!


Interruption of Music.

We would like to apologize for the outage we had from May 23rd 2013,  3AM EST to May 23rd 2013,  8AM EST we had a network failure that was out of our control.

Our technical team is looking into creating a secondary service that will be on a different network that will take over if the primary goes down.

Thank you for your patients.

The Lounge Sound staff.

Time for a Martini Now!
