Rock.com Offers CD Quality Playlists

Recommended Posts

HOLLYWOOD--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 19, 2004--Free music thrives on the web at Rock.com, a great alternative to the fee-based services on the web. This is the place you can find CD quality music with no commercials for free. "Why pay for something that you ought to get for free?" asks Steve Newman, CEO of Rock.com.

With a station and a style for any musical taste, listeners will find Modern Rock, Extremely New Rock, Classic Rock, Heavy Metal Pop, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Trance, Jazz, New Age and Latin Rock. Your average radio station broadcasts in your city. Rock.com broadcasts nearly three million tracks each month to listeners in every city, in every country, around the world.

The goal was to create playlists "not branded by any corporation," explains Scott Feldman, Rock.com's Director of Media Relations. "We're free to play any music we choose."

Sounds okay. I prefer to set my own playlists, but when forced to hear the radio it's nice to have some quality.

The quality is the question. Is 128kb really CD-quality?

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020."
