Woe dude! A jukebox within a jukebox? Have another toke! Seriously, that
is an extremely creative suggestion! Amazing,

I have a 60 GB disk in my JBR20. That is such a huge amount of space that
you can
get lost on the road while searching for stuff to play. It would be nice to
have a "Radio-
mode". That would be something like a virtual radio station where you can
vote for or
against titles. At first, the whole disk is in the playlist. You start
playing in "Radio mode"
and the JBR plays songs randomly. While playing you can vote for or against
the title
being played by pressing certain keys. Maybe there is an unused byte in the
header where we could store a corresponding value which determines the
possiblity of
this song being played. The higher the value, the more often this song
should be
Another idea for "Radio mode" would be the random play of certain music
styles. For
instance you could choose "Rock Radio" and only songs with the ID3-tag for
would be played. Furthermore you could determine a time range that would for
create a "Station of the 80s" with only songs from that area etc..

Any interest for such a feature?
