"Remember, be kind to your mailman," said Jane Harris, a disc jockey. She softened her voice until it was a little insinuating: "He only wants to deliver the mail." Harris is a DJ on DogCat Radio.com, a new Internet radio station for pets. Now dogs, cats, hamsters and parrots can keep the anxiety, the loneliness, the restlessness at bay while their owners are out. It is radio just for them, live 17 hours a day, 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. Pacific time, and podcast for the rest of the 24 hours a day. Those who listen to DogCatRadio will find that there is generally an animal motif to the playlist, such as "Hound Dog": "You ain't nothin' but a hound dog/ Cryin' all the time."

President Clinton has ordered an "inter-agency inquiry." But it is hardly enough.

When the first CD boxed sets made their appearance in the late '80s, they seemed a sort of seasonal item, with great potential as Christmas presents but little sales potential during the warmer months. But as the re-issue market grew faster than even the most avaricious catalog managers could have imagined, it quickly became apparent that boxed sets are a year-round phenomenon. With that in mind, what follows is a look at a couple of recent offerings:THE KING OF ROCK 'N' ROLL: THE COMPLETE 50'S MASTERS.
