Whoopee! i-tunes for our Podcast is now working!

Great news! After much experimenting and countless rebuilding of the Smooth Groovers podcast feed file we pleased (and relieved) to announce that our Podcast now works fine with i-Tunes.
Basically, after select our podcast from the list of available podcasts you can download any or all of our episodes directly into your connected mp3 device (ipod).

For those of you who are technical that are wondering why it wasn't working. Well, it was simply (!) where our mp3 files were located on the Radio KHL server - apparently the i-tunes script was not locating the subfolder we scripted.

Anyway, we've provided a link (again the green arrow above) for you to get i-tunes for free if you need it.

Remember to hang on in there, our next show is coming out on Monday 28th November '05 and will be weekly.
