slotRadio cards

I am disappointed that this has no display! It looks like there will be 500 song Slotradio cards. I am glad about that. $50 for the 1,000 song cards probably won’t be that popular, but 500 songs cards under $25(and especially if discounted to under $20) would imo be very popular.

Looks like a plain 'ol SlotMusic player marketed & labeled for a specific radio station to me. I don’t see no RADIO on it! I can’t help but think that this is a rather feeble attempt at ‘bundling’ in the hopes of getting some numbers of these low-end players out just to further promote the pe-recorded cards.

Why not have them as give-aways? Be the 20th caller when you hear Led Zeppelin’s Stairway To Heaven or something to that effect.

On 2nd thought, better make that the 5th caller. I don’t know if there would be 20 people that interested in owning one. :stuck_out_tongue:

The appeal of Slotradio to go is the use of a AAA battery. While many want a AAA battery powered player, they want it to be a full function AAA battery powered player, something like a AAA powered version of the Clip+.

I just purchased a Clip+. I do wish it had a AAA battery. I don’t know where I can buy an AC charger for it. So I can’t travel with it unless I can find a USB port on someone’s computer. Now I notice the Slotradio to go cards are going for $60. In a short time, songs have gone from 4, to 5, now 6 cents each. I, for one, won’t buy them. What if the entire chip takes a dump, and all the songs are gone! So far, I am using my Clip+ as a $50 FM radio.

AC - USB chargers are widely available and reasonably priced these days. All you’ll need besides this is a USB > mini-USB adaptor and you’re all set for a road trip of just about any length.

Why not buy a regular 'ol micro SDHC card and stuff it full of music you already have. I’m sure you’ve probably got a collection of CD’s. Most everyone does. Rip’em to .mp3 format & stick 'em on the card (or, for that matter in the player’s internal memory), pack a lunch and some clean undies & hit the road, Jack. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks Tapeworm. I have not owned a portable music player since Intel made one. I was not sure if I needed a specific adapter for AC - USB. I really like the Clip+. Funny how Apple finally put an FM radio into the Nano. The 4 gigs of internal memory is way more than enough for me. And for anyone who is wondering, it works flawlessly with my Mac.

I bought the Slotradio Oldies card this week. The Slotradio cards are on sale at Radio Shack this week for $30. So far I have played the rock playlist and part of the country one. The sound quality is great, however the inability to block unwanted songs is so annoying. One can forward to the next song, but doing this each time for every unwanted song is so annoying. For the rock list, I like around 30% of the songs. This would be great if I could mark the unwanted songs so they wouldn’t play. Unfortunately one can’t do this. Do I plan to buy any more Slotradio cards? I guess I would if unwanted songs could be blocked. If it stays as is though, I might not buy any more of them.

I’d like to be able to place the songs I want onto a GoList.  And while playing that GoList, be able to repeat and go backwards in the play order.

Any chance that they might come out with an “All 70’s Music” card for the player?

Maybe, but if not (or until they do) the Oldies card has a lot of 70’s music on it.

Funny, I don’t consider that old. Guess that just show how old I am! :stuck_out_tongue:

a music card devoted to 70s music would be awesome! I’d be first in line to buy it :wink:
