Flash MP3 Player and separate Flash Movie control

Hi Everyone,
I am not sure this has been talked about as I have looked into Mp3 stuff
on this forum so here goes. I have a basic Mp3 player on an html page. It is
the "Theron_Parlin-Mp3_Player-614" Player. Currently I have it playing as soon
as someone hits the page. I want people to hear the comedian in the backgroun
as they surf the site. I currently have two video pages, one with Quicktime,
the other with Windows Media files. When a person clicks one of the video the
appropriate player opens and plays the video. The problem I have is that I
have to instruct my visitors to pause or stop the Mp3 player on the main page.
I'd like to have the player pause on some type of mouse click in the Video
sections.
I have given thought to taking the videos and just making them some sort
of Flash video so that I can cut down on storage space and have more control
over stopping the Mp3 player. The problem I have is that I am going to be
using html pages as I am now and the site won't be a full Flash site(that will
come later). I have no idea how to connect the two "players" in order to have
control over how the play is stopped on the player. I want the Mp3's playing
all of the time, unless there is user interaction. If a person clicks the new
video files in some type of Flash file I want the Mp3's paused until each clip
is complete. Then the Mp3 player will start back up. Is it possible?
I am thinking that I will have an html page with links to the Flash movies
on a single page/player. How do I connect the two Flash entities to have
control?

Thank you,
Don
