Mack & Eddie,
Yes, my music is backed up on CD's. As my son explains, "The station/site installs a small program that routinely scans the HD. When it finds an 'illegal' piece, it deletes it. It does it because there's a binary code attached to all 'legal' (oldies or whatever) that are now offered as 'pay to download' on some sites. Anything prior will get zapped." This gets past the firewalls upon installation under 'terms'.
Now, does he know what he's talking about? Ed's post is encouraging. I don't want to download anything from Pandora--or if I did, I'd pay a small sum just to be hassle-free--listening is good enough, since apparently one can tailor the kind of music one wants. Now there's a good idea. The fifteen minutes I listened before they cut me off wanting me to register was very good, and I'm glad whoever took time to post it. Jerry? I think?
