If you like music, you probably have an iPod.
If you’re like us, you probably don’t have a lot on it. All our best stuff is on CDs. But when you write a chart-topping blog every other day, you don’t have time to sit down and transfer your greatest hits from your discs to your MP3 player.
So what do you do? If you live in New York or Fort Worth (Fort Worth?), you call Catherine Keane. In 2004, Keane started a business called HungryPod. She’ll take all your CDs and put them on your iPod for you.
It costs $1.75 for each CD. If you don’t want to cart your CDs to Keane, she’ll come pick them up –for a small fee. In four days or less, she’ll put all the music on your MP3 player (it doesn’t have to be an iPod) and deliver it back to you, with your CD collection intact.
Sick of your CDs? Keane also does consulting. The ex-radio-station intern will add music from artists based on your tastes — for $25 per hour and 99 cents per song. She even has playlist suggestions, like “Lost ’80s” and “Gym.”
She says she has yet to receive a complaint.
Trust us: If we were her customers and she put “Lost ’80s” on our iPod, she’d get a complaint.
