Actually, there are some smaller stations out there who converted their entire library to MiniDisc, and just play the MD's throughout the day. (I wish they all did this)

Yes, MD has replaced the old cart machines. Also, almost every station uses MD for recording shows.

It's very depressing to see more and more stations convert all music to mp3 on several large hard drives. They sound like TOTAL CRAP, and I hope that all of their hard drives crash and burn...

No kidding! Alot easier to replace the md than to get a new cd...

One of my friends here is a part time DJ (has been forever) and we were talking about that one day. He said they pretty much rip everything at the same rate. He remarked how some of the music just doesn't compress very well compared to others. No surprise there!

Still my favorite for portable quality sound.

Very excited that I recently completely resurrected my tough old Sony MZ N707 R netMD player.  Paired it with my Bravo Ocean and output is going through some 668B's I leave on my bedside.  Tonight I am listening through 2 MDs, one with Led Zeppelin I & II and the other with Led Zeppelin III & IV.
