Direct download problems continue.

Unfortunately for the last couple of weeks our Soundcloud account has been serving up incorrect filenames when trying to directly download from   Soundcloud has yet to fix this issue and I haven't decided how much longer I want to wait for it.  If you are a direct downloader, you can temporarily fix the problem by renaming the generic filename of "Soundcloud Download" to have a .mp3 after it.  Our file naming system is FTLYYYY-MM-DD.mp3, but you can name the files whatever you want, so long as it ends in .mp3, it should play back just fine on your preferred listening device.

I'm told that the filename issue is not affecting our podcast listeners.  If you would like to move from direct downloads to automatic podcast downloads, please subscribe to our podcast.  You can just enter this URL into your podcast client: or subscribe to one of our other feeds at

Thank you for your patience as Soundcloud is supposedly working to resolve the issue.
