This could put us "on-topic" for radio:

AME is a subsidiary of RPM (Radio Program Management) in Michigan.  RPM distributes a weekly, monthly and bi-monthly series of music CDs called Top Hits U.S.A. to radio stations and Mobile DJ's in the U.S.  The songs have built-in 20KHz "cue tones" and they offer CD player Ultrasonic Cue Cards - PC boards that connect to a computer or automation system.  Their trademark is "Ultrasoni-Q."  RPM also offers music library services (CD or pre-loaded hard drives) to Radio Stations only.

Their president Tom Krikorian appears to be a voice-over guy and I think they offer (or used to offer) that service, too - although, I couldn't find it on their web site.  He voices their phone answering machine and his style is very distinctive.  Call (800) 521- 2537 (after hours) to sample his dulcet tones and authoritative delivery.
