Try the Chicken Soup approach. Disconnect the battery for about a half hour without the key in the ignition. When you reconnect the battery put the key in the ignition and turn on the radio. With any luck the CD will come out. Sometimes it work's. Sometimes it doesn't.

I love the "old school" idea of a CD player- but they DO break- then you throw them away and buy a new one- or just start singin' to yourself while you cruise down the happy lane of life-
