Fans help RetroRewind raise over $500 for charity

NEW YORK - By listening to recorded music and interview segments, and purchasing a custom CD, Roxette fans have helped syndicated radio show RetroRewind raise over $500 for charity in about a month's time.

  As we previously reported, RetroRewind was here in Times Square last fall when Roxette performed a promo concert at Virgin Megastore. In order to raise money for the National Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Roxette allowed Dave Harris, the program's host and one of our readers, to distribute the recordings to fans via a site on MP3.com.

  Since these segments were first posted, Harris has added "Listen To Your Heart." This particular song will only remain there for a very short time, as the recording is not of the same quality as the other four songs.

  A small amount of money is earned from MP3.com each time one of the files is listened to or downloaded, a little more when a CD is sold. This all adds up… and the total at presstime was $509.52.
