Thanks! WAMU has some good stuff, even a weekly "Computer Guys" show as
part of the Kojo Nambdi show. It's got NPR, The World, and some BBC
news. Car Talk, The Diane Rehm show, etc. Even though it's a local
station, I get crummy radio reception so I use the Squeezebox to listen.

Anyone know if one of these stations is a Pacifica network station?

id3v2 works perfectly for me - what do you mean by not reading the
existing tags?
It does for me - were your mp3's tagged with ape? I don't believe it
understands ape tags - but it should work fine with existing ID3V1 or
ID3V2 tags.

Flac doesn't use ID3 tags
