I download lots of stuff from alt.binaries.sounds.78rpm-era, but if old jazz isn't your karma, look for the music files in the newsgroups with the word BINARIES or MP3 or similar terms . . . to find 'em, just type the words in the search thingy for the list of newsgroups you downloaded from your ISP.
Newsgroups are what was on the local BBS's back in the early 1990's, and what all the computer users used to play on before the Internet got off the ground. It's sorta primitive, but it's been tweaked, and after you get used to it, it makes a lot of sense, and becomes easier to use.
Ya, I got hooked on newsgroups back in days when the Commodore 64 and a 1200 baud modem were state of the art . . . and 12 characters per second dot matrix printers . . .
If your ISP doesn't offer newsgroups, you can subscribe to very good websites that have excellent collections, like
I've never used any of their services, but they look pretty good.
Once you get set up, and if you use your MS Outlook Express as a newsreader, you look for an interesting mp3 file to download. They'll generally be posted in 500k pieces, so a 5 MB file will be posted as something like
If your ISP is cheap like mine is, you'll get partial postings, where not all the parts will make it to the news server. But the sheer quantity of postings makes it likely that sooner or later, you'll be able to get a bunch of stuff you like.
Then, if you're using MS Outlook Express, once you get everything downloaded (you just hold down the CONTROL key while you click all the files), a Window thingy pops up, and you COMBINE them, and you get a nice little file icon that you can either click on and play or save to your hard drive. Pretty cool, IMHO.
Dunno how it's done with other newsgroup readers . . . I downloaded another reader for free that's supposed to be better than OE, but it was too much bother to learn something new, and I'm still getting lots of mp3 file the old way, so I guess I just lack the incentive to go to something newer and better.
I recommend, though, that you DON'T use MS Outlook Express as your newsreader, if you're not already using it. The current version does not handle an encryption style known as "Yenc" which is supposed to have size advantages over the usual mp3 encryption format, but as far as I'm concerned, I don't really care about size as my hard drive is huge. But you'll probably see both formats, so it's probably best to use a newsreader capable of assembling Yenc files.
That's about all I can think of to tell ya about this stuff . . . hope it helps . . .

It's been a while since I configured a newsgroup reader, so I don't recall what's involved other than it's just a couple of phrases typed in a couple of screens, but ya, your ISP can help you get things set up.
