One nice feature that my ISP Internode offer with their ADSL plans is ‘free’ access to numerous streaming radio services.

Until recently I’ve stuck with Windows Media Player (WMP), but I’ve found that WinAmp does have a nice feature in that it it can display the ‘current song’ info in the MP3 stream.

I’ve also just found this nifty plug-in for WinAmp that updates the “Now Playing” bit of Windows Messenger, so that people on my instant messenger contact list can see that currently I’m listening to SKY-FM’s Christmas Channel! I think I’ll change to another station shortly, but it is getting close to that time of year, so it isn’t too bad.

While on the topic of Christmas, our band “Verandah” will be performing at Westminster School here in Adelaide on Friday night as part of their Christmas Lights Festival (I’d link to the Westminster site, but I don’t want to inflict their horrible Flash-only site on you). A mix of traditional carols plus a few of our own original songs.
