Windows 7: Viewing 'Comments' in MP3 files

Viewing 'Comments' in MP3 files

How can I easily view "Comments" field of MP3 files.
File Name tells me nothing.
Title is limited to a single line
Comments are concatenated into a continuous line

In Win-XP, Office 2003 Applications I could edit the file properties fields in the registry to display my preferred fields in my preferred order. In Win-Explorer when I hovered over a file the yellow call-out would display my preferences.
Is this possible with MP3 files, or do I need a third party program to read lengthy "comments" ?
My MP3 files are not in one folder, they are stored in sub-folders within a "Podcasts" folder.

Many of my podcast MP3 files contain 3 topics, the "Comments" field is the best field as far as I can see.

Or maybe there is another program that will make searching for tracks within an MP3 file easier.

I would appreciate any assistance

You can use a tag editor such as mp3tag.

Below is a screen shot of one of my mp3 directories. See the comments column. Only one file in this directory has a comment.
