The mp3 link doesn’t appear to be active? When I hover over it, it doesn’t appear to be a link and no option to right click

    The MP3 player that is used on this page is a Flash player. Firefox has recently implemented a “We aren’t going to run this by default” thing for Flash.

    Other browsers may have followed suit, if you’re not using Firefox.

    If you click on the grey bar where above where it says “Play in new window | Download” you’ll get a message about it being Flash, and you can authorize it, and it will play.
