Stefan --

I'm aware of the xml option, but just didn't want to have to reinvent the 
wheel if someone more handy with Perl has done it already.

As far as next five "songs", I should have been more clear, it's actually 
next 5 "lectures" and since I have broadcast rights to the content, there 
is no problem in pre-announcing.

Best Regards,
