    Thanks for posting Abarb, I've just been trying it out. Lots of music to choose from - even classical, which I happened to pick, just because I was in the mood. :D (Also, the classical tracks tend to be quite long-ish, so not so many ads to listen to!! ;))

    Looks like they finally waking up.

    Not saying I agree with the situation as is but that is definitely the way it is, if you catch my drift.

    Personally, since 1960 or so I have probably (definitely) spent too much on music. And all those years DJ-ing probably paid for the West wing on Elton John's mansion.

    I bought it all, then they asked me to buy it again (vinyl to CD)

    I bought it all, then they asked me to buy it again (CD to m4a/mp3/FLAC)

    So, to be honest, I don't feel guilty about some of the activities I might indulge in right now.

    Having said that, I still buy, sometimes.

    I have only tried the service out on FF on my Arch os and I do not have any adverts at all. Seem to get a silence between tracks :lol:

    'Peppermint Candy Station Poon-Tang'

    My goodness.

    I have, in my possession 4 tracks by a band named The Strawberry Zots. I thought that was odd, but....

    Tried listening to a full album and still no adverts :dance:

    Poon-Tang was the name of the song. The Treniers was the name of the group. :)
