I'm missing something here. It downloads as a text file. How do I download it as sound/music?

Thanks. I've been looking for this one.

Copy the entire URL in the first comment and paste it into your broswers Address bar. This will bring you to a sharebig window. Click on "Click here to start download!" button to start the download. This will download the RAR archive, which has to be uncompressed once downloaded. WinRAR can take care of this step.

The link is dead - can you please upload these old Holman discs again? They are hopelessly out of print.
