Yahoo's Audio Search in Beta

Here's one to check out: Yahoo's new beta of Audio Search. Yahoo claims to have 50 million music, spoken word, and other audio files available. The search function can be a little unpredictable, but the treasures you'll find are worth the effort. My favorites so far: Groucho Marx and Margaret Dumont singing "Hurray for Captain Spalding" and a recording by one of my favorite folk singer/songwriters, Lew London, who seemed to disappear after doing one terrific album, Swingtime in Springtime.

My iPod is going to be busy this weekend!

George,

Oh dear. Why oh why did you point us to this? I'm unproductive enough as it is...

I was, however, disappointed to find that Tonto's Expanding Headband, one of my favorite early progrock groups, was nowhere to be found. Gotta love that name, eh?
