[Mitch says:] I'm up late - so I'll give you an idea... there are options to
hide files, and I think to restrict access to hidden files - not sure if
they will prevent file creation, but they might prevent access once they
exist, then you could just do a :

 find /some/path -name "*.mp3" -exec rm {} \;

to get rid of them.
