Yes, you can pull up an entire list of artists either by genre or the
entire list.  Each page comes up with (I think) fifteen items and then
you then have to press the next link to get that many more.  The only
hard part but doable after a fashion is the two graphic buttons to play
a tune and to add item to playlist.  that's the thing we've discussed
before on this list and what I stumbled around with on my recent podcast
at or you can subscribe at for the whole picture or should
I say whole sound:).
