iTunes Minor Issues

I have been informed of a minor issue with iTunes that may or may not be related to ID3 tags. But I have also heard that this issue could be a know issue that apple needs to fix with iTunes. I noticed episode 5 had the wrong track number in it. So I’m pushing that episode 5 back down to see if this corrects the issue.

So those of you who are iTunes listeners may see episode 5 come up again. You can ignore it, if you wish. There is nothing new to it, I’m just trying to correct some background settings.

Thanks,
Bill aka Valharic
