Looks like the radio.com site is at it again...

Recommended Posts

In this day and age, it's unbelievable how BAD this service is. Randomly stopping at commercial break and requiring a browser restart to fix.

I haven’t had to do a browser restart but have had commercial breaks interrupting a segment.

 

WGR used to have random interruptions too.  I’m guessing it happens when the guys are consistently late for the break?

 

The one benefit of radio.com is my stream doesn’t stop when browsing this site.  Any reply or quote would stop the stream on WGR.

Worst move ever! Keeps randomly cutting out. 

 

If I hear one more Summer's Eve douche commercial I will throw my phone out of the car window 😒

 

Seriously, who thought it would be a good idea to continuously loop a feminine hygiene product commercial on a sports radio station?

I have far more issues with the radio.com app as I did with the WGR app.  It's causing me to listen much much less and I really enjoyed daily listening.

Same here.  I mainly (basically only) listen to Sal Capacio segments and a select group of guests.

It seems to me that WGR was far less meticulous about archiving segments from shows, once Radio.com took over. Sal’s segments are always up but that’s not always the case for other shows.  It usually just says “Howard and Jeremy Hour 1” or “One Bills Live Hour 2” even when they have been guests on the shows.   If I’m not listening live, it’s rare that I’ll go back and listen to the entire show in its entirety

I have downloaded the RADIO.COM app from the playstore on a android tablet.....plays fine...The problems seem to be coming from the listen live on the WGR site.

I am going to be working on the basement and garage this weekend.  A few months ago I would be listening to WGR, now I'll listen to some podcasts instead.

All the GR shows are available as podcasts... I'd recommend BeyondPod, just subscribe to those shows and automatically download the feeds.

Well at least you guys have the option of listening via an app. 

 

Im Canadian so the radio.com app is not available to me. Plus if I try to tune in via another online tuner app it is muted. 

 

So I figure if their management doesn’t give a poop about their Canadian listeners, then I won’t even use my laptop.  

 

I miss Sal but at least I don’t have to hear that pompous, arrogant, know it all, loves to argue Shopp.

Considering number of douches which call into or work for WGR is it surprising?

Both games I couldn't access the post game show on Radio.com. 

 

I listened to the pregame show in the car on my phone. But in the car three hours later trying to listen to the post game show on my phone, it says I don't have access to this programming. It's surely not a blackout issue.

Don't you own a radio that plugs into the wall outlet?

Was there any reason give why they switched? Radio.com is horrible. It took them almost 30mins to put back on WGR after the game was over in order to listen to postgame show.

I loved th fact that last night that you couldn't go to post game coverage on the app not when the game was over, but when the tv broadcast itself was over.

That's a mobile platform thing because the game was on via PC as was the post game right from the end of action.

Lol, I actually don't.

 

And for many of us, what good would that do it we are out of range?

It's easy for us 'Buffalocentric' members (especially the dinosaur contingent) to think we're all within earshot of local radio coverage.  Ain't science grand?!
