We are now up and running on Live365!
Starting today, MHR is temporarily shut down. Without any warning or notification Stream Licensing has shut down. We found out via this article. They never contacted any of their clients. We were stunned and saddened. . https://radioinsight.com/…/1778…/streamlicensing-shuts-down/
However, we decided to move to Live 365. Our account is created and we are in the midst of building the station. This will take time but Mouse House Radio will be back in a new location in the near future!
8/12/2016 - It happened again. Two months in a row MHR is a featured station on Streamlicensing.! Wahoo!
7/16/2016 - New Blog Post - MHR a Featured Station
Recently we found out Stream Licensing the company we pay our licensing fees through has been purchased by another company. We are hoping this is a great thing. A lobby group is heading to Washington DC to fight for lower licensing rates for the small hobbyist webcaster. If this does not work out and the new Stream Licensing group is unable to find affordable ways for us to meet requirements our rates will go up another 70.00 + per month. This would mean we would be forced to pay a minimum of 150.00 per month to keep MHR on the air. We simply can not do that. Radionomy in our opinion is a mess. They are dealing with their own lawsuit for not paying licensing fees and royalties. They have immense technical issues. With Radionomy - you really do get what you pay for. The headache of dealing with them is not something we want. We will shut down. So once again we are pleading with you. If you have not signed the petition in support of small webcasters please do so. The link is provided to you on the right hand side of this very webpage. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please sign the petition. Make yourself heard.

Look to the right. See that? Request your favorite track. Then tune in on Monday and Friday mornings when we play our listener favorites!
We have chat! You may have noticed we recently added the ability to listen to MHR directly from our Facebook page. The thing you may NOT have noticed is along with this feature comes a chat room! We invite everyone to stop in, say hi and use it as a way to share your love of everything Disney with like minded people. We will be stopping in occasionally as time permits to also say hi and touch base with everyone. See you there. (just wanted to note the chat is currently unregulated. If you see something happening that shouldn't be, please copy and paste or send us a screen shot via FB messenger. We do want to keep it as family friendly as possible.)

Live365 is silent. This simple phrase was posted on a FB group for Live365 broadcasters. "THINK WE NEED A GROUP HUG ...." I agree with him.
The Wilderness Lodge playlist is back up and running. As of now it will be playing on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons beginning on or about 1pm.
Many of you have sent emails and messages asking if there was anything you could do to help. Now there is. We have a fight on our hands. We - small and microbroadcasters are fighting for affordable rates. We want to be fair to the artists. We want to pay royalties. For those of us who use the platform of internet radio as a hobby and not a business we simply can not afford to pay commercial rates. The owner of Stream Licensing sent an email out recently. We are gathering strength and getting ready to fight. I have posted this email on our blog - here. Please read it and help us as and so many others like us as we go forward with this fight. Thank you. :)
Check out our blog for the entire store, to date, of what has been going on. With L:ive365 shutting down at the end of the month you may be wondering how to listen to us now. You can access MHR by clicking on the Listen Now button above, or by going to Shoutcast and typing Mouse House Radio into the search field. Please be patient as we get our tracks in some kind of order that makes sense.
We are back up. More details coming from Jen in the near future about the decision to fully commit to Mouse House Radio....Ian (co-owner of Mouse House Radio).
