iTunes for your pleasure

Thanks to Joe, the music entries on this blog will now link directly to the iTunes music store so that those who wish can listen to samples of the artist and perhaps even buy a few tunes if the mood strikes and your credit card feels particularly lonely.

The downside is that a lot of the stuff I listen to doesn’t seem to exist in the iTunes catalog. And if you’re on some kind of operating system that doesn’t have iTunes, I do not know what will happen when you click the link. Perhaps your computer will catch fire?
