I was surprised today to see streaming radio on YWN. Is this new or have I just not been paying attention.
Let’s use this thread for comments and suggestions about YWN Radio. What do you think?
I just turned it on so I don’t have much to say, except that it seems to be playing very loudly. I had to turn down its volume all the way then I still had to turn down my computer volume all the way and it was still pretty loud, so I turned my speakers down almost all the way, and now its a comfortable volume level. I’ve never had this with anything else. Anyone else experience this?
In the meantime, Enjoy!December 16, 2009 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1095594itiswhatitisMember
They had it on yesterday, thought he took it down this morning, don’t see the link. Happen to like it so far – from the hour that I heard yesterday!December 16, 2009 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #1095595artchillParticipant
I’ve tried listening to the David Greenfield Show last week. All I heard was how the person across from him dropped his I-Pod, some corny laughing and a request for the first question, and nothing more.
If YWN has a service let it reflect a professional image not a slapstick comedy.December 16, 2009 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1095596
Now it seems to be gone. It just stopped playing and the link isn’t there anymore…Does anyone know what’s happening???December 16, 2009 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #1095597Joe SchmoMember
artchill, what does David Greenfield have to do with the new YWN Radio?
And please. get a life.
I listen to Greenfield every week, and he does a superb job.
He’s a great orator, and covers many issues in depth.December 16, 2009 8:50 pm at 8:50 pm #1095598
Details very soon!December 16, 2009 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #1095599artchillParticipant

Also the best song list feature – it refreshes properly and lists the next song as well.December 23, 2009 2:50 am at 2:50 am #1095606JewessMember
It looks neat and professional and sounds great. I just wonder why “Dayenu” is being played in the month of Tevet?December 23, 2009 3:48 am at 3:48 am #1095607
lol never look a gift horse in the mouth :D:D:DDecember 23, 2009 4:28 am at 4:28 am #1095608oomisParticipant
” I just wonder why “Dayenu” is being played in the month of Tevet? “
Well that’s a lot better than all the December holiday songs being played before November.December 23, 2009 5:25 am at 5:25 am #1095609yankdownunderMember
YWN Streaming Radio is fantastic Kosher Music on the air waves!December 23, 2009 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #1095610
Surprisingly, I’ve been listening to it all day. I usually listen to classical music. It’s really good. Nice variety.
However, there is a commercial that is driving me insane. Okay, all together now:
It’s not jewLERy. (If you’re in the UK it’s jewelery, but YWN is in the USA.)December 24, 2009 2:23 am at 2:23 am #1095611
I love it! Best Jewish music livestream I’ve heard yet! I love the songs that you play! Keep up the good work!December 25, 2009 1:46 am at 1:46 am #1095613
Is there any way for me to request a song to be played?December 25, 2009 6:42 am at 6:42 am #1095614HalelujahMember
plonisalmonis: I have that question too. Can we vote or request songs, singers, albums, etc?
Moderator, what do you say?
Good questions. I have no idea.December 25, 2009 6:52 am at 6:52 am #1095615HalelujahMember
Can you ask those in authority and let us know?
Thanks.December 25, 2009 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm #1095616
The answer is yes. But not yet. Still tons of exciting features being added to the radio.
Please be patient, and enjoy the music while we continue to implement changes to the current system.December 25, 2009 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #1095617Proud JewMember
why RADIO? shouldn’t it be called MUSIC instead on such a heimish website?
also there is tons of Chasisdish nice music. pls. add them.
& if u want people to listen keep the advertisment to a minimum.December 25, 2009 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #1095618chofetzchaimMember
Will this ever be available on the actual radio rather than just online? It would be nice to be able to listen to this when not online, in the car, etc.December 26, 2009 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #1095619
Proud Jew: There is nothing wrong with the word radio. You remind me of a friend I have who doesn’t like the name of Effingham, Illinois.December 27, 2009 12:53 am at 12:53 am #1095620
LOL!!! funny as ever HG 😀 to PG…find something more productive with your time than nitpicking about free services offered to you 😀December 27, 2009 2:06 am at 2:06 am #1095621yankdownunderMember
If people want to request a song why not have a special word to click for all requests?December 27, 2009 2:38 am at 2:38 am #1095622AlexParticipant
When will be airing the newcast?December 27, 2009 5:41 am at 5:41 am #1095623JotharMember
How about an Android app? there is no good streaming android app that plays jewish music. This way I could listen in my car through my phone.December 27, 2009 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm #1095624
We are working on apps for pda’s.December 27, 2009 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #1095625
Is there a problem right now (approx. 10:50 a.m. in NY)? Or is it my stinking computer?December 27, 2009 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #1095626

Thanks Yeshiva World – this is really great – i was starting to get bored of Jewish Broadcast…January 27, 2010 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #1095629PosterMember
You got a SUPER mix of songs! I really enjoy it!!! I Keep it running all the time!January 27, 2010 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #1095630
What time will the newscasts be aired? I don’t want to miss it and I can not stay logged in all the time (my daughter likes to listen to her music- she’s 3- it’s not worth arguing with her)January 27, 2010 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #1095631
7:00PM tonight, and 10:00AM tomorrow.
Times may change in the next few days.January 28, 2010 12:21 am at 12:21 am #1095632qawsMember
When will the smartphone apps be launched?January 28, 2010 12:27 am at 12:27 am #1095633
Was the news at 7pm very short or did it not happen? I came on at 7:02 and didn’t hear anything 🙁 I guess I’ll try again tomorrow…February 19, 2010 3:42 am at 3:42 am #1095634
I don’t care if this gets posted or not, I just want this to get someone’s attention.
Because of various reasons, I have stopped going on to YWN, but I felt that this I had to do.
I was really excited when the YWN Radio came out because I was not happy with the existing live-streams. Now however, I’m not nearly as happy. Extremely unimpressed actually. I’ve been listening to the YWN Radio almost every morning and night, and I’ve been hearing the SAME SONGS being played OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER. It’s driving me nuts! I mean, how many times a week can I listen to Yossi Green’s 8th Note? And if you’re just going to tell me that it’s pre-programmed and it’s the same every day THAT’S WORSE! I want originality. I want quality content. Not this! And your “news update”? Quite pathetic if you ask me. Maybe it would be better to change it at least once a week, if not two or three times. But I’ve been hearing the same news update for three weeks already! I think it’s time to get your act together. If you can’t provide a quality live-stream, then stop doing it until someone who CAN comes onto the scene.
So that’s it. I’m off my soapbox now. Sorry I was so harsh.February 19, 2010 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm #1095635FunnyBunnyMember
When the radio first came out I loved it but after the 1st week my computer started giving me the following message:
Anyone have any idea what to do about that? Thanks!February 21, 2010 5:12 am at 5:12 am #1095636JotharMember
there is an Android app called streamfurious, which allows me to listen to a competitor’s streaming Jewish music station. I am waiting for ywn to enable their streaming on android, the wave of the future.February 21, 2010 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #1095637shev143Member
When I try to listen it comes really unclear, I’ll hear 1/2 a word then nothing then 1/2 a word, anyone know how to fix it?February 22, 2010 3:00 am at 3:00 am #1095638asdfghjklParticipant
