Yahoo has introduced a test version of a new search service that it claims can comb through 50 million music, voice and other audio files.

[nytimes.com...]

[audio.search.yahoo.com...]

With this, Yahoo says you can search for items such as music, interviews, speeches and newscasts, podcasts, and sound effects.

This looks very interesting.

Is anybody aware if google are developing something similar?

Pretty cool...

Couldn't find any free music, though - seems like all of the music links go to pay services like itunes etc. - even if the band allows file sharing (like the dead)

Given they've all been copying each other recently, it wouldn't surprise me if Google started throwing something together.

Of course, this covers the FM dial (music). Interestingly, it does seem to cover the AM dial (talk), too, inasmuchas such things are already available online anyway. So, if you're a fan of a particular AM show, and there happens to be a podcast, or some MP3 or something already out there, Y! will find it for you.

Makes sense. I like how when you click on a search result, it brings up a framed page similar to Google Image search (info, summary above, actual page below).
