  1. Greetings!
    This would be a great blog if downloads were possible, but with Uptobox it is impossible to download, even with no adblocker. I wonder if you ever tried on of your downloads.

  2. Thank you very much.

    I have downloaded.

  3. Dear Chris T,
    Please type the characters you see under the picture

  4. Hello,
    Thanks. Maybe you've got Gene Allison on VeeJay or some Spinners on Motown.

  5. dear chris,
    apparently you are the only one having problems to download on uptobox,
    (with a premium account I do not have to put captcha and I do not have time to wait), but you must follow the directions of the server: enter a captcha and wait a bit to be able to be downloaded.
    if here you would still have problems please send me an email.
