Music Trends and Lifetime Listening Preferences

    SAN DIEGO, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- College memories are typically filled
 with late nights, junk food and good music.  And while the majority of old
 college habits are shed with maturity, music listening preferences often last
 a lifetime.  MP3.com, Inc. (Nasdaq:   MPPP), in response to the tremendous
 number of students who have asked for fresh, cutting-edge music, created
 MP3.com College Radio (www.mp3.com/collegeradio), a non-commercial show that
 garners exposure to new artists in the college demographic.
     Celebrating its sophomore year, the MP3.com (www.mp3.com) College Radio
 program, is steadily adding stations at major universities like Northwestern
 and George Washington University to their coffers, with Pennsylvania State and
 Georgetown being the most recent enrollees.
     "For years, college campuses have been the incubator for new artists as
 evidenced by many groups' first traction in the market place," said Terry Ash,
 senior vice president and national sales manager of MP3.com.  "MP3.com
 recognizes that college campuses are crucial for setting trends in the music
 industry.  The record companies actually farm college campuses for the
 development of new acts and artists."
     High-profile artists such as U2, R.E.M. and the Police attribute their
 musical ascension to college radio airtime.  Mike Halloran, a nationally known
 disc jockey and program director, recalls hearing the Police's top hit
 "Roxanne" in the early 70's on KZSU Stanford, attesting to the fertile
 germination grounds of college campuses.
     Artists on MP3.com have historically garnered much attention from their
 college audience, including the Atari's (www.mp3.com/TheAtaris) whose work is
 now heard on national Macintosh commercials.  The punk-pop band has also
 earned more than 40 thousand plays on www.mp3.com as well as $17,709.06 in the
 Payback for Playback Program (www.mp3.com/payback).
     The MP3.com College Radio (www.mp3.com/collegeradio) program airs every
 week and comprises of hip hop, alternative and pop music and is part of
 MP3.com's vast radio services.  For more information, visit
