Hey WGH and all,

Thanks for sharing your comments. The way the MusicThing WIdget works is... we process hundreds of music content feeds on our machines (locally), as well as process info from our own proprietary database of info, organize all the data, and then we create 100 feeds of our own containing randomly selected topical data. The Widget (on your end) randomly selects one of the 100 feeds from our site every time you hit the button. Our feeds are updated 3 times a day and we are currently processing about 3000 new items a day.

And we are very, very pleased to have helped you discover Dave Holland -- one of the true Living Legends of Jazz. That's what this Widget is really all about -- helping people discover new music and musicians and other fans that they love. There are many, many great artists out there -- many more than what the "labels" offer us -- and they all deserve a little more recognition and a chance to be heard.

Have a fun day!

A widget that directs you to random music clips from all over. Can't decide if these are the author's additions or if there is an underlying website that is gathering the data.I looked for the underlying website that powers this widget and couldn't find any. However, I found a new group, Dave Holland, that interests me, so it was worth it!

Does what it says. The only dissapointment was that it isn't specifically for "Lounge Music"...

First thoughts...

When you click links, they open either your browser or iTunes to "sample" music. (I like for things to be contained in the widget and not just open other applications)

The top, under the logo, appears to be a menu, but none of the words are clickable. I'm not sure if this is a bug or not.

It does look good, though. Even if it is just a modified version of your OnlyNewYork widget.
