Part XI: Podcasts and Audio Files

I have downloaded iTunes onto my machine. I have to say that I was rather dismayed about the selection of classical music and artists that I am interested in and also the sound quality, viz. the extreme compression makes the music virtually unlistenable even with loss/less or WAV.

I have also viewed several podcasts.

I have created a Face Book account using the pseudonym "Kasheh Varnishkes" (which were one of my great childhood favourites).

As well, I have added Soul to Squeeze to the friends network on Face Book.
