ITunes won't load my RSS feed to post my new shows. I have 4 out so far but ITunes only shows 2. I've pinged, I've been over the RSS feed numerous times and cannot find anything wrong. It loads for other sites without problem.

My show is For The Horde Radio. The link is

Can someone please let me know why this is? I've sent emails asking for assitance but haven't heard any reply back. Why can't Itunes load the new RSS feed?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    You might want to use Feedvalidator.org (a free service) to check your feed.
    It looks like you have a few errors such as an "&" in a title that isn't escaped properly (add an amp; right after the & to fix).
    You'll probably need to modify the very top of your feed to make it read:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    and make sure that the server is serving it up properly as UTF-8.

    Correct the errors that Feedvalidator reports, keep running it through there until it gives you a "congratulations" that it's a valid RSS feed.
