Win32 API & Rhapsody -- Getting "window Text" for this app is tricky

My goal is to use Windows API to get some information from the Rhapsody (http://www.listen.com/rhap_about.jsp?sect=main) application. This information is regarding the current song being played: title, artist, album, and current slider position.  Using Winspector (a Spy++ style application), I can isolate the 'window handle' for each of these elements -- however, the "Text" field doesn't display what you would expect. For example, the "Artist" window's text is "artist.text". The "Song" window's text is "song.text". Is it possible to get the actual values? If so, please let me know the details .. I plan on coding this in C# if its possible.

(Download the rhapsody demo to experiment with this.)

It is possible that - if its a skin based application, the text is 'bitblted' to the window, and not created using text apis, therefore little chance of getting the text.
