Rick, I think with the latest system's (7.61+), you can set the CD to 
automatically start playing any CD in the drive when a CD is inserted.  
That might also hold true for any CD in the drive _when the computer is 
started up_.  If that were the case, you could just set the computer to 
come on at 6:00 and be done with it.   Of course, that assumes the Bad 
Bad Leroy Brown is the first track on the CD...

Barring that I do believe there are AppleScript / Apple Event interfaces 
to the AppleCD Audio Player.  Just not sure where you would go to get 
more info on them...
