      "Purely for research purposes" i get ya ;)

      I've had many a funny look from 'the young' when i've refused the odd ripped DVD with a reply "i don't work for free, so why should people who make films or music"

      RE Sherlock.

      There's just one episode being aired as a special where it is set in the past. The new season actually consists of 4 episodes in total including the special.

      Another good podcast chaps.

      I listened with interest to the debate around Apple Music. On a related note, I was an early adopter of Google Play Music and I get the service for £7.99 a month as a result. It barely ever gets mentioned however its a good service. I like the service on the web, in addition to normal album offerings you also get suggested 'radio' stations, I am currently listening to Psychedelic Ambient Techno Radio which is interesting. There are also offerings around time of day such as That Friday Feeling or whether its a weekday or weekend. All good stuff. The app on my Galaxy S5 is also very good, where you can download any music you choose so you can listen offline. This is all in 320 Kbps. I can also link my phone with my Chromecast which is plugged into my Yamaha amp, so when I switch to Direct, I can get the music onto my Acoustic Energy front speakers and it does sound pretty good. Anyway, written far more than intended but it is a good service.

      Keep up the good work.

      Completely agree with 'rosscouk'

      I also got the earlier adopter price of £7.99 and Google Music is easily the best of the streaming services I have tried (no I haven't tried Apple music). It integrates seamlessly with your own library, which is a great advantage. The addition of 'youtube key' for free is also a great advantage.

      I have Spotify Premium for free at the moment and it is never used, which was my previous 'go to' streaming service.

      Keep up the good work guys with the entertaining and informative podcasts :)
