The essential guide to IT transformation

LineOne is to launch its own Web-based radio station as part of its contribution to the broadband revolution, The Register can reveal. ITN will provide some of the news and feature-based content although the exact make-up of the service has still yet to be ironed out. A senior but as yet unnamed figure from the radio industry has been drafted in to head up the new radio station -- or should that be audio station, since it won't be broadcast over the airwaves? A source close to LineOne said there will be "all different kinds of content" -- and he refused to rule out the possibility of a music station too. As far as this reporter is concerned, executives at LineOne need only answer one question about the future of their audio station. Will they give a solemn undertaking to play Jethro Tull albums such as Aqualung, Minstrel in the Gallery and Songs from the Wood in their entirety instead of a non-stop diet of pop pap? Come one LineOne, the too-old-to-rock-n'-roll-too-young-to-die generation has a right to know. ®
