Tell him to subscribe to music podcasts that compile a show for people with the music of a specific genre.

I should point out that the podshow music network is really for podsafe music so that podcasters can spin the artists music on their podcasts.

Podshow is working on a way for people to purchase music from the artists listed on the PMN. Adam Curry has said on his show that the PMN will also allow the artists to choose whether they want to charge for the music or not.

So that may not be a viable option for just anyone, I have not registered for an account there because I do not have a phone.

Here is an article that I found a while back on Lifehacker that shows how you can get free music via The article shows how to do it with iTunes, however it works with Juice (iPodder) as well.

Simple, easy to use, if they let you download the track it just downloads to your computer for you.

Lots of choices, all music is downloadable, some is podsafe.

Its OK, but I usually have to Google the artists name to find their music because some of the downloadable music is only 30 seconds long.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
