I recently received this reply from a station to one of my "weekly e-track"
"We're not a new releases format, and artists who have no name recognition
or connections to (our) listening area are a hard sell for our programming."
I thought the purpose of programming a station was to bring to the audience
the best music available. I have a problem with grasping the logic of
limiting the selection to artists that you believe your listeners already
know, or that have geographic roots, or to previously released material.
