This week’s uploader of the week is shick. For the past several months, shick has been uploading cantos of Srimad Bhagavatam. Srimad Bhagavatam, also known as the Bhagavata Purana, is one of the important texts of the Hindu faith. It is considered to be the purest of all of these important texts due to its devotion to Krishna and Vishnu. Fittingly, the text was passed down via oral tradition, making it a fitting addition to YourListen‘s audio book channel. Thank you shick for the many months of audio uploads – keep them coming!

Listen to the most recent segment – Canto 10 Chapter 38 – here:

An audio book is a recording of a book or other text being read aloud. Recording texts originated in the 1870s after the invention of the phonograph; audio books became popular in the 1930s. The American Foundation for the Blind created the Talking Books Program, which increased the number of audio books produced. Audio books are also popular for teaching children how to read and recognize sounds. However, you don’t have to be either blind or young to enjoy audio books on – you can check out our audio book channel and listen to a sample below on the History of Kariya:

This week’s uploader of the week is ManipuriMusicUpdates. This user has uploaded numerous pieces of music from various Indian styles, most prominently Manipuri.

A “ringtone” is a sound notification used to alert a person to incoming calls or messages on their phone, despite no longer truly being rings or tones. Most ringtones today are music – small melodies or song clips. Ringtones were first customizeable in 1975; people used to edit the music chips in ringer devices to put in their own music! The first mobile phone with customizeable ringtones didn’t come out until 1996, more than twenty years later. Now ringtones are a multi-billion dollar business – but you can download ringtones for free from our ringtone channel at
