Thanx JamesR looks promising, I thought of offering download and/or streaming, can WAV's be used for streaming, how do the two compare as far as bandwidth is concerned (they don't have a lot of cash)?

the wav file is going to be about 10X bigger than the mp3. If you're gonna put it up on the site you definatly want to go with the mp3. If bandwidth is an issue you should maybe put up just 30 second clips of the songs. No reason you should give them the whole song right? Just give em enough to bite and then sell the the whole cd.

There's no issue of selling tracks as yet, they're still looking for a contract. The tracks are demo's (but very well recorded). I chose a server with plenty of bandwidth allowance. I'll have to suck and see. Guess we'll forget streaming for now.

Both WMA (Windows Media Audio) and Real Networks offer some streaming solutions. I am not up to speed on charges though. Real Audio gets good sound at low bitrates.

you can http stream realaudio for free - can't remember how exactly but I used to do it a fair bit.
