I have been successful in the past adding URLs to my favorites list in Squeeze network, but today I tried unsucessfully to add Wolfgangsvault. I can't get the stream to run in Window's media player.

It run's Flash and the url I get from right-clicking does not work with Squeeze Network.

Any ideas?

FYI, this stream plays live tracks from Bill Graham's private archive! Gotta have it!

thanks,

CRASH!

It is an mp3 stream buried under the flash, hosted by live365.com:

http://pro03.live365.com:15324

I don't know if the port changes or not.

P.S. I'm left wondering who Bill Graham is and why
all the sudden interest...Google points to bgp.com
which isn't loading for me. Some concert promoter?

I guess I am unhip. ;-)

He was the owner/manager of the Fillmore East and Fillmore
West, which was one of _the_ rock and roll facilty
in the 60s and early 70s.

Google for 'live at Fillmore' and be amazed.

Bill Graham was responsible for virtually every major (and a lot of minor) concert in the SF Bay Area from the late 60's until around 2000.

'Day on the Green' in the 70's had 6 or so 'arena' bands in an all-day concert: there were usually 6 or so of these a year at the Oakland Coloseum.

there's a wonderful explanation on the web site.
http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/About.aspx


Wolfgang was Bill Graham, the man whose genius for bringing performer and audience together shaped the rock concert as we have come to know it. Born Wolfgang Grajonca in Berlin in 1931, he escaped Nazi Germany to grow up in a foster home in the Bronx and anglicized his name at the age of 18.

Huh. Got my attention now:

http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/catalog.aspx?PerformingArtistID=5107|11662|2395

That's more my style and generation.

Weren't we going to get a music discussion board here
to talk about stuff like this? Just got "With the
Lights Out", which is not only blowing my mind, it's
blowing my speakers. :-)

The vault is getting some attention:

Bill Graham was responsible for virtually every major (and a lot of minor) concert in the SF Bay Area from the late 60's until around 2000.

A minor clarification, Bill Graham's orgranization, Bill Graham Presents, was responsible. Bill died in a helicopter crash in '91, along with a couple of others.

I wish you guys would stop reminding me....
For some reason I can't get any volume, although the Flash Player seems to be working fine (its the latest version)- cycles through all the images, etc. Also, Pandora works great, so I can't figure out why it won't work. Could it be firewalled somehow? (I'm at work). The 'settings' menu doesn't seem too helpful - am I missing something? Any help appreciated, I'd love to hear some of these tunes!

You mean you can't get the BGP stream to play? Did you try the url posted here?

http://pro03.live365.com:15324

It works fine for me. If the flash player version works, it is going to be using the same URL/port as above, so I doubt then it could be a firewall issue.

I'm using 6.5 of slimserver - don't know if the version would matter.

Hi Mr. C.
No, its the Flash Player that isn't giving me audio! And if I try the url, I get a "Cannot find server or DNS Error", so I'm thinking that possibly the audio stream isn't getting through the corporate firewall (although the 'image' stream is getting through to the Flash Player!) Maybe its because I'm in Canada? I can't find much in the way of configuration/set-up for the Flash Player, so I don't know what I can do to troubleshoot. Sure wish I knew what was going on.....

Works fine in for me in London, ON.

See if the Windows volume is OK. Perhaps something set it low. Also check that the mixer volumes are OK - I'm not sure which one
Flash uses.

BTW my browser window keeps indicating that it's loading data from 216.235.81.103 when playing this stream, but when I enter it into the URL bar I get a server reset error, so you can't use this IP address directly.

Definitely corporate firewall - works fine for me at home, both Flash Player and the url that Mr. C. kindly provided. Oh well, what can you do - at least Pandora works (for now....)

This works for me. Including the port number.

Like any live recordings, sometimes you love what they did live, sometimes you hate it.

I wish the stream would tell me who was playing, though. It doesn't (slimserver 6.2.2 from a few nights ago, if that matters). I'm by my computer right now, so I can keep the web site open, where they tell you this stuff, but that won't always be true.

You can enter http://216.235.81.103:15324 into WMP or other streaming app. It works in IE and Opera, which launches WMP, or you mp3 streaming app of choice.

More publicity for this. The local cable/news station/web site, Pulse24, part of the CITY-TV conglomerate, put this up on their web site today.
