I downloaded Songbird, and I admit, I do like it, but I really need CD 
ripping and Podcasts, too (For the Ubuntu UK podcast, obviously!), So 
when Songbird has those features, I'll definitely use that, but since 
they aren't implemented yet, I'm gonna stick with Banshee (Which I fixed 
with an 'apt-get purge banshee', an upgrade of ALSA, and a re-install of 
banshee, works fine now!)

Cheers for the heads up anyway Alan;
