Music This Week July 3rd thru July 9th and important info on web site

Hey there,
Major bummer. I used Weplayer from Yahoo as the media player on my web site. On
June 30th Yahoo turned Webplayer off. I can’t figure out why they did that instead of
letting it continue to play. The bottom line is that you will only be able listen to the
music via your browser’s built in media player. The problem is most browsers don’t
automatically advance to the next song after it finishes playing a song. This means
you will have to manually click on the next song to hear it until I find another solution.
My concern is it took me three weeks to find the Webplayer in the first place and after
over a year I forgot which ones I tried before so I’m starting the search from ground
zero. Anyone that knows of a good player that will seamlessly integrate into
WordPress please let me know. I have over 200 band pages, some with over 50 songs
on the page so having to add code to each page is not an option.
Please let me know how much this aversely affects your using the web site so I can
prioritize the problem. Do I need to stop recording and posting and devote my full
attention to the problem or is it something you can live with until I find a solution?
Thank you.
On the good news side, LMAG has received its first revenue.  A special thank you to
Peter Norris who made a very generous donation using the donate button on my
Home page. I will propagate the donate button to all the pages but right now it’s not
my highest priority. If you would like to contribute just go to the Home page. If you
want to contribute (tip) to a specific band make sure to let me know in the comments
section. I hope y’all will support the bands this way and I don’t have to resort to
advertising to raise revenue for them.
The music is a little light this week due to the 4th. I haven’t had time to do much
research so the recommendations are sparse. Please let me know about any good
music I missed.
I hope y’all have a safe and happy 4th!
Happy Birthday mama! I love you.
