I don't even see a link for free music in iTunes anymore. Did they move it again and hide it really well, or are they no longer offering weekly free downloads in the US?

I hope they put it back tomorrow or Friday so I can post it, but it is not in my iTunes either.

Thanks!

Assuming the news reports are correct, it's a good time to thank some deserving forum members.

Thank you to the following forum members who have helped maintain MacRumors free iTunes lists over the years:
adamberti, arogge, betbest1, cbeyond, DingerUK, JamesMike, jules.vincent, kaylee, Knox, koba, krkst28, LostOnTheLine, MaverickKohl, Punicasoft, SandboxGeneral, SilentPanda, xxironchefxx
Thank you to KKKL, minlshaw, and others who have helped us spot other free music giveaways over the years.

When I started the first Free iTunes thread in 2004 I had no idea that the program would last the whole year, much less 11 years. The lists total 1555 songs for the U.S. and plenty more in other countries. It's been a team effort to track them and a pleasure to work with these volunteers.

Apple added a surprise tune on today. Maybe in honor of the iWatch release.

iTunes, I see you went from a straight line approach to listing the free songs in columns.
