    I used to really enjoy browsing through the postings on CNET Music. Download I found that about 15% to 25% of the posted music was quite excellent. I especially liked the fact that anyone who wished to could could create a piece of music and offer it to any who were interested. This meant anyone from a bar band to some guy working out of his basement could "be discovered" by folks who would not be able to find him (or her) any other way. Unfortunately the service had been discontinued.

    I am not interested in anything like a commercial Internet radio station and I do not want to listen to someone else's play-list. I want to be able to sample (or listen to the entire piece if I wish) and if I like it then download it.

    Does anyone know of a similar service?

    Give this site a try http://www.jamendo.com/en/

    Also, amazon mp3 downloads has plenty of free tunes for downloading. Most are 256kpbs mp3 format and they are DRM free.

    Edit: Wow! PROROOTECT beat me to it. Quite a list he put together.

    I had looked at last FM but it is an internet radio station playing established artists and playing them in an order you cannot control. Not at all what I am looking for but thanks anyway.

    Unfortunately the suggested sites above do not measure up to CNET Music. Some interesting stuff but......

    bgoodman4, I feel your pain. Like you, I found CNET Music to be an excellent source for undiscovered talent and music world wide.

    I was disappointed to see this CNET Download Music will redirect to Last.fm article in March and after reading this section of the article:
    I knew it was the end. I have not found a replacement yet but if you ever do, let us know.
