    I did some similar searches in the recent past.

    I only found one hit:

    http://www.jbum.com/jbum/software.html

    (Scroll down to CD+G Player).

    Don't expect to do much with it. According to the author:

    CD+G Player (Macintosh) is a program which allows you to play
    and see compact discs in the now hard-to-find CD+G format, an
    unusual hybrid of CD audio and graphics which is still used to
    make Karaoke discs. If you have any CD+G discs, here's your
    chance to see the (low resolution and slugglish) graphics they
    contain! A list of known CD+G titles is included. (Ancient
    Macs with Apple SCSI CD-ROM players only!).

    IMPORTANT NOTE: I am only including CD+G player here because
    it is of historical interest. I am also aware that it DOESN'T
    WORK on nearly every modern macintosh, due to big differences
    in the CD-ROM drivers. Please don't send me emails asking how
    to get it to work on your G4 or iMac. It doesn't. Also don't
    send me emails asking how to get it to work on your Windows
    machine. It won't.

    If you're interested in the CD+G format, here's a doent
    that explains how I wrote the program and if you're really a
    masochist here's the source code .

    He does provide source code in case you're a programmer and want to
    try and get it to work.

    IMO, it's far cheaper and easier to just buy a karaoke player. I've
    seen a $75 DVD player with microphone inputs and karaoke disc
    support.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for that, David.
    It is the common-sense solution, but it would have been kind of neat to
    do it on the mac :-)
