    I had left it playing here so I have it my logs and can see that this really was the cover art that they specified.
    Code:
              'album' => 'Th Connection Plan',
              'artist' => 'Big Big Train',
              'cover' => 'https://coverartarchive.org/release/3b1866b5-e86f-4699-b64e-1abdd963f630/17050343660.jpg',
              'coversearched' => 0,
              'duration' => 237,
              'endTime' => 1656100879,
              'startTime' => 1656100642,
              'title' => 'The Connection Plan',
    The "'coversearched' => 0" tells me that it was not the plugin that went out and searched for it.
    My guess is that they do risky searches to find the art ...

    I could ignore the art that they provide and always look myself - but this then results in the art changing from the station logo to the found art a couple of seconds later.

    I looked it up and this track was a single which wasn't on an album. It doesn't explain the spelling mistake though.

    My guess is that the spelling mistake was the result of faulty manual input by someone at the station ... or a random citizen submitting track info to a CD lookup database that has subsequently flowed around.
    Then the misattribution to an album that it was not on made the lookup fail when trying to get cover art so it fell back to some loose search and then stumbled upon something that has "Big" and "Connection" somewhere in the fields

    Possibly going through the various "CDDB" like systems would eventually find the mistyped "The"/"Th".

    If no other artists appear with "&" in their name then I suspect a coding problem on their site.

    Maybe I should create a new top-level menu item for Prog Rock and put these recent stations under it.
    I had thought of this also when you started adding many prog stations, but I don't think it's a good idea or worth your time. You will run into situations like Mother Earth - Jazz? Classical? Eclectic? You would also break up the station families that have multiple stations of different genre.

    I consider your plugin's hierarchy as the Station Name or Family, and stations available once you "click to take a look" and if we, the appreciative listeners want to put them in our favorites organized in folders, we can.

    My thoughts...

    Beta 0.0.23t
    - Add progrock.com - adds album, year and art (coversearch)

    Couldn't resist adding one last prog rock station before release of 0.0.23

    https://www.ProgRock.com

    You can try it yourself before updating the plugin by playing
    https://psn3.prostreaming.net:2199/tunein/mmonfo01.pls

    You will probably see LMS getting the artist and a version of the title - and the streaming provider name as the station name.
    I have seen two different formats of metadata from them.
    When in automatic (not a DJ lead show) they have something like
    Dimitri Toonen - Decapitation [2022: Sounds From Emotions]
    which is
    artist - title [year: album]
    LMS gets the artist name and the rest is put in the title.
    With the plugin you should see artist, title, album and year all put in the correct fields.

    Another form that I saw during a DJ show was
    Brian Auger's Oblivion Express - On The Road - Brian Auger's Oblivion Express
    artist - title - album
    Again LMS will find the artist and the rest is put in the title.
    With the plugin it should find artist, title and album and put them in their fields

    During the programme the spoken links were like this:
    Prog-Scure - Segment_1a - ONE HALF 21
    ... which (for now at least) I treat as artist - title - album.

    With a few more example of the metadata during different DJ shows I /might/ be able to put in some more configuration to treat these differently.

    Anyway, I now maxed out with listening to prog rock while testing over the last few days. I think I'll have to find a more peaceful genre for the next batch.

    Beta 0.0.23u
    - Add Whisperings Radio (Solo Piano Radio) - adds album, duration and art (coversearch)

    Antidote to days of prog rock ...
    https://www.solopianoradio.com/

    Playing without the plugin you should get artist and title only.
    With the plugin you should get added album, duration and art (coversearch).

    This is for the free stream (with occasional ads) but might also work for the premium ad-free version.
    However, I am not sure that it is the same content ... so it might show the wrong track info when playing the premium one (you have to follow their instructions to play your personalised stream URL). If you are a subscriber and that happens then let me know and I'll work with you to try to find a solution (you can disable this station from the settings in the meantime).

    I'm running out of letters for beta 23 ... so this really is (probably) the release candidate.

    I never knew there was one! But, I'm not on facebook, so maybe that's why
