Internet users hear the interviews on a simple click-to-listen basis. Live365 is also featuring a contest allowing Live365 listeners a chance to win a Yamaha guitar also autographed by the stars.

Once uploaded, users who visit a particular broadcast station with On-Demand Audio can listen to a complete audio selection at their convenience.

“Live365 wanted to reach out to the country music fans on our site. Fan Fair is one of the biggest events in country music and these interviews along with the guitar give-a-way is a great way to reward our listeners and showcase our new on-demand audio technology,” said Alan Wallace, senior vice president of communications for Live365.
