In the 90s, I ended up using Telemate a lot for dialing into BBSes.  One of the
unique features it had was that it was able to control the CD-ROM drive to play
audio CDs, so you could listen to music CDs in your PC while you were BBSing. 
It seemed cool that it could do that, but perhaps not the most useful feature.
If I wanted to listen to a CD, I'd probably use my CD player, since it sounded
better.
