Re: [RedHotJazz] Georgia Strutters - May 23, 1927 Harmony session
- Problem with redhotjazz.com, does anyone recognize it?
I have been streaming and downloading music for years but have got problems
the last months. Ca 4 Mbit/s should be enough, but it gets interupted
several times pro minute like buffering. When listening to Youtube I don�t
have this problem.
