Oy! Let the music sort itself out among the listeners. Speaking for myself, 
I am not a messiah of evolving music, nor an educator, although having said 
that I realize that the college/NPR venues have more of that and college 
broadcasts generally do attract audiences that respond to more avant garde 
programming. My venues are more community oriented and I mix my playlists 
accordingly. I simply respond to my demographic as I suspect we all do. Your 
audience will tell you what they want to hear.
