Cheap playlist trick

My iPod is packed with music and audiobooks. All the music is good, and sometimes it's nice to just hit the "random" button and see what I get. Problem is, I'm about 40% likely to get a podcast segment, an audiobook chapter, or some stand-up comedy. And I just figured out a way to get random music when I want it, but not worry about getting random spoken words. It's a simple trick: I made a playlist called "random", to which I copy all the contents of my other music playlists. When I want a random selection, I select that playlist and shuffle songs. Quick, easy, and a little embarrassing I didn't think of it sooner....
