What are .ram computer files please?

I went onto the web to try and find some jazz music called "Chimes Blues". I found what I wanted, but I had to load down a .ram file.
I have not heard of these before.
Are they one of the many types of files that could include a 'nasty'?

OK, thks Vog. ... that's a start. .... but are such files ever used as a medium for viruses and the like please?

Thks for your quick response.

As far as I know, they are not. Assuming that you have anti-virus running that should prevent infection anyway.
