    Can a radio station play when opening up a page ?

    Just trying to get a particular radio station (it is available online), to play when a particular page opens up - before I attempt any more - is this possible ? If so, what coding please ?

    Like that?

    Takes me a good 10 minutes to actually get the page to load, but that's their fault for making even their ads in Flash. But I guess they could argue that they are a flashy and substanceless radio station and therefore deserve to build everything in Flash.

    You can also argue that people going to that site of course want to listen to them, why else would you go to a radio station website? But I'm disappointed in their lack of Flash-alternative content.

    Hm, they seem to be down for the moment. Also I neglected the "www" in front.

    arrow.nl/rock ?

    You also need all your scripts on, and you'll wait forever for the stupid cufon crap to load... but they also load a flash player, though not like Veronica which loads like a gazillion of them and Veronica's also auto-play I believe while Arrow at least lets you choose to hit the play button.

    Both show live which song they've just played, which is actually the reason I go to those sites with scripts full on.

    Hm, try to think of any big-name radio stations in your area. The whole auto-play thing seems pretty popular with them. They do seem to all use Flash for it. Possibly you'd have to request the stream from them? It might all be done via their back-end instead.

    I wonder if they have to pay some extra license to have that music on their websites or something?
    ..and since in some countries they're starting to fine people who are merely playing their radios outside where other people can hear them, you might need to look at any legal implications before looking for code too. Which sucks. Music regulation is the next step to the Thought Police.

    This might have exactly to do with what you're talking about but I'd say it's good to keep in mind:

    Even someone going to a radio station site may have their own music playing on their computer or using speaking software, so even then, they may not want sudden music playing. Might be safer to at least have an "on" button.
