How Replay Music Helped to Make the Perfect Housewarming Gift

Kelly lives in San Francisco. When her friends invited her to a housewarming party at their new apartment near Chinatown, Kelly was at a loss for what to bring as a gift. When she heard that their new apartment had a wok built right into the kitchen counter and she got an idea.

           

Kelly pulled out her PC and fired up Replay Music and started searching the internet for songs with the word “walk” in the title.

Kelly put together a playlist of songs from the 50’s to now. There were Country songs, Jazz songs, Folks songs, old Rock-n-Roll songs, instrumentals and vocals. A little something for everyone. Kelly created a playlist with over two hours of “walk” music and used Replay Music to burn the playlist to CD. When it came time for the housewarming party Kelly gave her hosts the CD with instructions to play the songs whenever they cooked with their wok. Her friends loved it!

           

Kelly heard later that her friends listen to the CD while using their wok and it always makes them smile. They love telling other friends about her clever idea.

Thanks for your story Kelly – we are so glad that Replay Music came in handy – and brought some happiness to you and your friends.

Five Great Sites for Streaming Music

Every other month or so I put together a list of sites that are great for streaming audio or video and publish the list in our newsletter. Here are five sites that were featured in the March newsletter:

I like having 1.FM on while I am at work. I am a total fan of the 70’s pop station. The songs crack me up.

Band of the Day is an adventure – you never know what kind of music you’re going to hear. And if you miss a day – no big deal – they recap the bands they’ve chosen from earlier days at the bottom of the home page.

I confess I haven’t set up my own station with earbits – instead I like the editors’ picks – always a good listen.
