I tend to check out AFSAD once a week by downloading it to my i-pod. It gets a bit tiresome having to play each one separately though, rather than just being able to click on podcasts once and get them all running one after the other. Unless of course there's something I'm not doing right on my i-pod...

I have really enjoyed the variety of lovely music since this project started. Thanks Jon.

If you have the Podcasts downloaded to I-tunes, you can
Select the ones you want
Right click
Click on "create AAC version"
I-tunes then puts a version in the main Music section, and you can listen from there or create Playlists etc

And so it ends.  What an absolutely brilliant project - well done to Jon, and everyone else involved.  Life is going to seem very odd without it.

Hardly seems possible does it? Where has the year gone?

It has gone really quickly. I've really enjoyed it, and have learned some cracking songs. Many thanks to Jon and everyone else involved.

Gonna miss that song appearing in my i-tunes every morning (well some times evening and sometimes a week later. lol!) enjoyed having something new to listen to each day and finding out more about the songs. It has softened me towards unaccompanied singers more...I don't run a mile from singers in sessions anymore.

Absolutely - thank you Jon for all your hard work.  What dedication!  It really doesn't seem like a year's gone by at all, does it?

Just been listening to the '29th Feb' song for this year, Jolly Bold Robber.

Heard it on a Blackbeards Tea Party album, and also like this stripped down, train corridor version.

Looking forward to hearing what Bellowhead do to it too  :)

Thanks for telling us about that Darren, I probably would have missed it otherwise.  Can't you just imagine him with his coat over his head singing into his phone?  I wonder how many strange looks he got!
