You can configure music classes with a DTMF digit that when pressed when 
listening to music on hold will cause the channel to switch to the new 
music class.

 From the musiconhold.conf sample file:

;digit=#        ; If this option is set for a class, then when callers ; 
               ; are
;               ; listening to music on hold, they can press this
;               ; digit, and
;               ; they will switch to listening to this music class.
