Hi Nathan,

what did you use as a source to generate the file in the dropbox? did 
you just put an existing file into the dropbox manually? or did you use 
an app or a process to generate the dropbox contents and does it have an 
option to kill the track number when naming the original contents?

many player-rippers autogenerate the track number for CD's but also many 
have the option to exclude the track number from the ripped filename.

Unfortunately, I am not in an on air environment with sat feeds etc so 
not exactly sure what kind of a source you would be using.
