I have made a simple Applescript that opens up iTunes and plays music. Is there a script to make Front Row open up and show the currently playing iTunes song?

I don't think this is possible, as Front Row's AppleScript support is almost totally non-existent. You can see for yourself by opening Script Editor, selecting "Open Dictionary..." from the File menu, and choosing "Front Row" from the application list.

This is definitely possible if there are iTunes alarm apps out there that have this feature. Besides Macscripter, where should I look for this type of Applescript?

Could you point me towards an application that can do this?

Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes (http://www.dougscripts.com/itunes/) is a good place to look for info on controlling iTunes.

Aurora (http://metaquark.de/aurora/) is one app that uses Front Row in a way I would like my script to work.
