I'm not only a fan of classic films but I love old time radio and the music of the classic film period. I added a music player to my page so that members can listen to some cool stuff while they are browsing. The player will allow you to launch it into a separate player so you can move around the web or the network with turning it off by leaving my page. Just click the launch link below the player.
If you want to add your own player you can do so easily. I would prefer this method rather than using the network's player and storage. We only have 10 gigs of storage and once we exceed that amount we have to start paying. Pictures do not take up a lot of room but videos and music can eat up storage quickly. So if you can find resources that will store your video and music files off-site that would be great!
Now getting back to the player. I use ProjectPlaylist.com as their player is easy and simple to use. It has a good search engine that allows you to add songs to your playlist from their existing database. It works fairly well but I did add a couple of songs that were mislabeled and had to delete them because there was no way the tracks were the songs I requested. Anyway, all you need to do is register and follow the very easy steps to create a playlist. If there are mp3s out there on sites you know of you can add by URL to your playlist also. In fact most of my current playlist I entered manually. Once you have a playlist you can generate a code that you then enter into the "add a widget" box. Just copy and paste the code into there and save and voilà!
I hope you enjoy the playlist. There are some fun things in it right now. Especially check out the Marx Brothers entry and the Jack Benny's. Those are always good to get you laughing and raise your spirits.

Take care everyone!
