Music 2.0: MashupTown via RSS

I've been having lots of fun this morning listening to some tunes from MashupTown.com, a site hosting some of the best mash-ups around. If you are unfamiliar with mashups, they are new songs created by artfully mixing two or more previously recorded songs together. The end result can be lots of fun to listen to. My favorite one this morning is "Shout Out at the Magic Rocket Man" (link to blog post with link to file) - it's a collage of 4 different classic rock songs. It's great.

I discovered MashupTown via Adam Curry's Daily Source Code, which is a great podcast about podcasts. Curry loves Mashuptown and plays selections from the site nearly every episode. I decided today that I wanted to subscribe to the RSS feed from Mashuptown, to automatically receive new posts and audio files in my aggregator. The site didn't have the general feed link available, so I emailed them and asked for it. I also asked whether they'd like a code snippet for one-click subscribe buttons to the major aggregator services (like I have on my sidebar.) I got an affirmative reply, so hey Art - here's the code you can copy and paste into your site. Thanks so much for the great fun. I'm listening to Mashuptown Radio right now and am finding a few things I'm digging there too.

You'll have to forgive the run on html, off the side of the page. I think that's just how it goes, and it doesn't seem like a real big deal to me. I'll fix it when I find the time to learn how to, but I don't want to break the lines of code up.

I included a link to my explanation of RSS feeds, feel free to remove that if you'd like. Other readers can use this same template to make one-click subscribe buttons on their sites, just replace the Feedburner RSS URL here with your RSS feed URL. Let me know if anyone needs help with that.
