Sometime when you’re resting (like that ever happens), could you do a lesson/article(s) on music? Search of “Music” on the site only hits on some very old items.

In my case (Android S7) we buy CDs at Bluegrass Festivals and buy download songs from places like Amazon. I’d like to be able to play these on my S7 with headphones and through the RV/car radio using Aux In/Bluetooth. 

Google Play Music and Amazon don’t have a way of being able to upload purchased CD’s. Don’t think Spotify, Pandora, et al do either. Plus these are all going to subscription and I don’t want to hear similar artists…just the ones I like.  I guess one solution is to download the CD’s to the S7 or a thumb drive but that leaves out the ones purchased on-line. Don’t know if there other options.

Just a suggestion. Steve

ON EDIT: did some reserach and find that with Spotify you can upload ripped CDs in an MP3 format. My ripper had been using a variant that is not supported. So, maybe Spotify is the answer but still suggest that music would be a good area to explore. You may have better alternatives.

Yes, absolutely! It has been on my list to do an episode on music. I just don’t know enough about it. But, hey! That’s exactly why we do these shows – to force us to learn!

I may need to find a guest to help out with this one.
