Rogue Folk Club Artistic Director Steve Edge, in the studios of CiTR. Note the Manchester United cap!

Saturday January 3, 2009

This week the latest copy of Sing Out! arrived at Rogue Towers, and yesterday I pored over it and searched for the new CDs mentioned inside and sampled on the cd. I found heaps of them and downloaded some highlights. I know that some radio stations won't play MP3's or AAC's or even AIFF's, & there may be some DJs who might frown upon the practice of digging up the music from sites like iTunes and eMusic and a Russian one called but it's what I do, and I would rather not deal with full CDs when I may only like a few tracks and can store them on my trusty MacBook Pro. So lots of new music this week.
