Can I use jumpers cables to power radio in car with no battery?

I have a car with no battery in it. There are cd's in the audio system I need to retrieve. Without having to hook up a battery I was wondering if I could just use jumper cables and attach a running car to the terminal cables sans battery and get the power I need to turn on the audio system and eject the cd's.

Yes, 12V is not much voltage, just make sure the jumper red lead does not touch any metal other than the battery terminal you're connecting it to. Key on the car but don't start the engine, CD's will come right out.
