Clear Channel CHR KSLZ (Z107.7)/St. Louis adds Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, starting Monday, February 25. Duran's nationally syndicated show will air weekdays from 5-9 a.m. CT. Z107.7 will air "Best Of" Duran shows next week, starting Monday, February 18.

When CBS Radio AC KVIL (103.7 Lite FM)/Dallas’s Tony Zazza asked morning show listeners to send in Valentine’s Day cards for the students at Sandy Hook Elementary School, he was overwhelmed by the response. Since late January, more than 10,000 valentines have poured into the station from North Texas and beyond. "What I thought might be a few hundred cards sending our thoughts turned into a mountain of love from our giving listeners to these amazing kids and faculty at Sandy Hook," said Zazza. "Even people in New Jersey and Louisiana heard about Hearts of Hope and sent in valentines." The first 10,000 cards have already been sent to the school, but with more still arriving in the mail each day, additional shipments will soon be sent.

Sat Bisla's syndicated specialty show Passport Approved picks up six new affiliates: KNDD (The End)/Seattle; KRML/Carmel, CA; KRZQ/Reno; 99.1 Radio Doble Nueve in Lima, Peru and BlendFM.de in Germany, as well as InterFM in Tokyo, which is incorporating a monthly Passport Approved featured in to its show Now What Can I See.

Jimmy Iovine's anticipated digital music service, codenamed "Daisy" but now called Beats, is slated to launch this summer. Iovine spoke at the AllThingsD "Dive Into Media" conference this week, saying that "There is a sea of music, an ocean of music and absolutely no curation for it. You friends can't currate for you. No one knows what song comes next. Apple knows a lot about your music taste. Google knows a lot, and Facebook. But no one is using it to curate," according to CNet. The service will charge $10/month. As previously reported, Trent Reznor and Dr. Dre are also involved in the project.

Digital music service Slacker has released a new online ad campaign, taking aim at competitor Pandora and claiming Slacker has a much larger library of songs. The service has also announced an overhaul, with more visual elements and personalization options. Billboard.biz reports the changes are designed to appeal to new and casual users of the service. CEO Jim Cady told Billboard, "We felt it was time to move from early adopters to mainstream listeners."
