We're going to show you how to add the Mandolin Cafe MP3 podcast to your iTunes software in 5 easy steps in this brief web tutorial. This is not difficult so if you're gun shy about working with a little bit of technology, read on.
The MP3 podcast is a collection of most of the free tunes available on our MP3 page.

That, my friends is a lot of listening material!
Step 1 - you need iTunes software installed on your PC or Mac. I'm going to assume you'll take care of that piece of it. It comes installed by default on Macintosh.
Step 2 - launch iTunes and go to the Advanced Menu and select Subscribe to Podcast (see screen shot below -- click the image if you need a better view):
Step 3 - you're presented with a small dialogue box and in it you'll enter the Podcast web address which we'll provide right here for you to copy if you wish:
Step 4 - Click OK on the window with the Podcast address and iTunes will add the entry:
Step 5 - Click the right facing > arrow next to the Mandolin Cafe Podcast and then the Get All button. At this point, all tunes will begin downloading to your iTunes. This will take awhile--go for a walk. As you visit in the future you'll have the option of downloading new tunes we've added, and we're adding them all the time. You're done! Now you have 226 free tunes to enjoy listening to via iTunes.
That's it. Got questions? Post them here.
