Hey, I really like the first few subjects chosen for our What’s On My iPod series and I hope our readers did as well. We’ve got one more already locked and loaded, two more set and full intentions of keeping things moving in the right direction. Honestly, I’m thankful that these have been so well received, both by those who’ve participated and by visitors. From my computer chair, the perspective was that readers read and listen to what we listen to daily. I wanted the chance to branch, show different music and also tap the minds of a few of the Freshest folks around. Yeah, the early picks have all been personal inspirations of mine, but we’re going to open things up as we move along. First, we just had to get the ball rolling because wen we started these, they began just like all other endeavors we’ve tried here.

Straight up on a lark.

After that, I consume an inordinate amount of cigarettes, send a ton of emails, brainstorm, badger Contra™ and/or Paola about the graphics (shouts to P for being able to always read my mind), hit the rest of the Crew for input and we all combine to pull the idea together.

But there was a specific purpose of this post. It’s to address one of the most overwhelming questions I’ve received since we posted the first one with Skee. “Can I get all the mp3s in one file?”
