>
> Folk
> Alice?s Restaurant.mp3
> Alright Guy.mp3
> Beer Run.mp3
> Funk
> Fusion, etc.

> However, when users click on a genre list item, I?d like the next thing they

> Folk
> Guthrie, Arlo
> Alice?s Restaurant.mp3
> Guthrie, Woody
> Seeger, Pete
> Snider, Todd
> Alright Guy.mp3
> Beer Run.mp3
> Funk
> Fusion
