Contracast: lots of free contra dance music

There are lots of tunes that I'd like to be able to play. Finding recordings of them can be difficult. Luckily, contracast exists. It's a weeklyish podcast by robert cox that is like a radio show for contra music. The archives are all available freely online and are under the creative commons by-nc-nd license. So as long as you're using them noncommercially, not changing them, and giving full attribution, you can do whatever you want with them. At some point I want to put together a full index from tune name to all the places where people play it, but for now, here's a complete index listing all the podcasts. If anyone wanted to pick some and give me nice machine readable lists of the tunes available on that one it would speed up the process of generating a full index.
Update 2010-10-31: we've started making machine readable summaries over on facebook.
