Long TOT Loop

Post by kissimeekathy » Apr Tue 18, 2017 8:37 am

What happened to the longer version of the TOT Loop, the 60 min one? I didn't see it under requests this AM. : (

I noticed this this morning too. I wonder if maybe they can be made available on the Background stream?

Also, the Indiana Jones 30's Radio Queue. It was 31 min. long.

They replied to my Facebook post about this stating "We are running a test to see if there more variety. 84 tracks of 3k have been removed for now. We struggle with long tracks taking up the majority of the day"

I get it. I miss my fav long ones but it has been nice to find and listen to things that don't normally get played or I haven't heard before.

Yeah I totally get it too, I just wish they'd move some of them to one of the other sections like Staff Picks/Background etc. There were some real gems in there. Part of the reason I liked the ToT one was because it was relatively "work safe" i.e. I'm not sitting at my desk to have Mickey Mouse suddenly burst out of my speakers "HEY EVERYBODY! Huh-HUH-HUH-HUH!" It's not "NSFW", but it's kind of embarrassing...

This made me LOL. So true. To many time did have coworkers and boss stopped in my office while something very Disney was playing and I got the the "What in the world are you listening too?" "Oh nothing!" as I quickly find the mute button.

TOT loop is really the best! By far my fav! Nothing else quite puts me right in a queue like that music!

Me, too! The problem is that most of those long loops are also in the background channel but not ToT, Jungle Cruise loop and queue, or the Indiana Jones 30's radio queue. We have no way of hearing those anyplace else. So sad. :(

Seems the Sci-Fi dine-in loop is missing as well, I can't seem to find it on any of the other stations.

Reporting the same issue. Any idea what might have happened?

My guess is because ToT, Sci-Fi, Indy, and Jungle Cruise all feature lyrics/speaking they are not considered "background", even though they are in fact background tracks. In other words, Background is more like "Instrumental Background". As far as why the 30+ minute tracks got removed I thought I saw somewhere it was to avoid monopolization of the queues where people on the west coast might wake up and find 6 hours of tracks over only 10 requests queued.

I understand. However, they need a place! We must convince them to put them on the Great Movie Ride channel or else the Background channel (or both, depending on the loop!). I have a long RSR loop that I haven't loaded yet. Not sure what to do with it now because it's too long to put on the requests queue.
