Perhaps it is easier to implement one playlist which contains sub-lists
grouped by genre or something. You should add some buttons to the playlist
GUI: one for each player started. Those buttons will assign the selected
song to the player who's button you clicked. I think this is easier to
implement than one Gui containing several lists, one for each player. It
is also a more logical thing to do, from the viewpoint of a c(d)j: you
have one box with music and several (cd)players.

just an idea....
