Bug Description

1/ Until recently Radio tray has functioned well Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
2/Radio Tray 0.7.3
3/ choose station and play
4/ Silence and indicates ""stop playing ,,,,,,,,,,,,," while slected station is not playing.

a reinstall helped briefly and now back to the stalling performance.
Perhaps just takes a long time to load and be ready to go.
Something definitely amiss here. Works well on another machine with 14.04.

Changed in radiotray (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

Not so much hanging as that nothing happens. Radiotray worked perfectly in 12.04 but after a clean install of 14.04 on the same Latititude E4300 nothing happens after selecting a station. Or rather, the Radiotray icon turns Blue and it shows it is playing the station at 100% volume. This happens from all Radiotray stations as well as those added by myself. Executing Radiotray from a terminal produces no error messages.

For me radio tray was working great until the last set of kernel updates 4.4.0-36
What happens is it takes about 90 seconds to load each time
also uninstalling pulse Audio EQ nuked the sound and system settings panel

Sorted my trouble: upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and fresh install.
Really don't know what fixed it.
