The new “Box of Rocks” promo library, with the tagline “Thinking Outside, Rocking Inside,” will consist of 7 initial CDs of original music produced by Stephen Arnold Music. The tracks in the library will range in length from 30-90 seconds. After the Aug. 8th release, one new CD will be added to the “Box of Rocks” collection during each upcoming quarter.

Also, the cut lengths are based on actual broadcast time demands: for example--a cut that is labeled 20-seconds is a true, usable 20-seconds.
