The Internet is all over the place. It changes everything it touches, and reaches
out for anything which it doesn't. The Internet is best used for text, graphics
and useful information, since downloading music would take a long time - music
recordings tend to be large files. Not any more. The
magic of the Internet has touched even this.
can now listen to any one of thousands of local and national radio stations broadcasting
their programmes online. Using "MP3" technology, you can even download
recordings of your favourite artist or band. (MP3 recordings are not all licenced,
so check that a recording is a legal one before using it). Of course, you can
also buy CD albums from e-commerce sites too!
