podcast difficulty

Hi there,

I am currently using Audacity to produce my own podcast. I conducted an interview and am attempting to drop in musical examples periodically on another track. The problem is that the software doesn’t seem to want any gaps on the ‘music’ track. I want a little music at the beginning and then a big gap until about 4’ where I would include another little musical example. How do I do this?

In 1.2.6: Insert silence.
In 1.3.3: use the time shift tool to drag them along.
