I discovered this station through searching through tweets that mention Hayley. The tweet I saw said they were playing Yuki no Hana. I listened for a while, and I heard My Heart & I and E Pari Ra. Right now I'm listening to Josh Groban's In Her Eyes. Lots of Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman, some Celtic Woman, All Angels, etc. I heard Faryl Smith's How Can I Keep from Singing, and I enjoyed it, though I do prefer Enya's much more. It's nice to hear songs by some of the artists I always see mentioned, but have never tried out before, so now I know what they're like. Some good, some not quite to my liking. That includes Filippa Giordano's Casta Diva. Her takes on operatic arias are very different and interesting to listen to. On the other hand, there was All Angels' I'll Fly Away and Somewhere. Somewhere was rather flat and dull-sounding, compared to better versions I've heard, including Celtic Woman. I'll Fly Away was pretty, but a bit noisy and the music was extremely dull, and the rhythm was a bit choppy. I've mentioned that song as one I'd like to hear Hayley to do sometime, and now I really do, just to have an improved version.
The station may only be available in the US. I'm seeing this message:

Hi, I look in on this website occasionally, and every now and then catch Hayley singing, but more often see that I have just missed her. (I see that I just missed her singing "Amazing Grace".) However, I get to it by another address, but doubt that it will make any difference in the UK. www.radiotunes.com/romantica I came across the site back when Joe was first attempting to build up Hayley on KTIC's "Crossover Show".

I'm sure I have come across this station before, or another one like it, but I think it was that one. And I have no problem listening to it. Currently playing Josh Groban "So She Dances". Which has now ended and we have - wait for it Hayley with "River of Dreams".
But not the usual recording from Pure, but a live version. Could have been from "Live in NZ" of course, I haven't listened to it lately.
I also heard Scarborough Fair last night not long before I quit for the night. They also played Katherine Jenkins. Still interested to see if they'll play Jackie, Forte, or Mario, as I haven't seen any of their music played yet.
I checked my old link to the Sky FM one, and they are playing the exact same things at the same time, so they seem to be the same thing. But they're different sites. Confusing. Oh well.
Okay, fine with me. I find that the original website I had in favorites loads better, but it doesn't show as long of a line-up of the most-recently-played songs. The newer one I posted sometimes doesn't show what's being played; it plays the next song, but still shows the title/artwork from the previous song. Refreshing sometimes helps, but that's a pain. And then, sometimes that doesn't work, because I find the page is still trying to load, so I have to make it stop loading, and then refresh it. Probably my end more than anything, but still annoying.
