Web host problem and Amazon ads.

Dear listeners - We are currently having a problem with our web hosting. We hope to have this problem fixed very soon! Thanks for your patience!

In addition, the Amazon links that we embed into our posts (so that you can buy the albums) have all started to spontaneously change to random advertisements. This has greatly pissed us off, and we will be removing these links in the coming weeks, and looking for replacements. If you know of a reputable, online retailer that will provide links, and won't randomly change my links to ads about lingerie and kitchen appliances, please send us a message.
