What's a good program to organize and burn mp3s? I'm running Windows 7 if that makes a difference.

I use iTunes on my Mac laptop however they do make it for PC's as well. It's a free download. I like it for organizing my music and videos. Burns your playlists easily.

Thanks Canuck. I have iTunes on my laptop but was under the impression that it used a different format, mp4, or something like that.

Burning CDs is so 2005.

I'm 52 years old..... I guess that makes me 'so 1960'. I don't have an iPod controller in my truck, just an aux jack. I can load 6 cds and control the playback from the radio or steering wheel.

Thanks for the input....that was very CGN of you.

But in all seriousness, I haven't burned a cd for going on 6 or 7 years now.

If you need to burn a CD, iTunes is a good option. If you want to rip a CD to your computer, I think iTunes rips as ACC files rather than MP3. If you're burning CDs or listening to music on a iPod, that won't matter much. If you want to rip them and play them on something other than an Apple product, it could be an issue. These days, it can be so difficult to keep track of all the options out there. I listen to Newstalk Radio most of the time anyways.

If John Gormley was on XM I'd pay for the subscription. Now you got me wondering if there's a way to download and burn/copy archived shows????????

There's a CKOM app for iPhone or Blackberry. Just get an unlimited data plan and you can listen live.

Gormley does have some podcasts, but like everything news, old is stale.

Thanks. I have the Corus app on my iPod and often listen through the CKOM website at home. Now I'm thinking of copying some recent shows just to have for those 11PM trips back from SK when I feel like listening to talk radio and there's none on.

I just spoke to a friend of mine who uses Windows 7. He burns all his Mp3's on the Windows Media Player that he says comes with the system. If not, it can be downloaded for free. Sorry, that's all I have.

CKOM- now there's a radio station I haven't heard of in a long time. Is CFQC still around? Ha, used to cruise the 'Dub on 8th street listening to CKOM. Good times . . .
