[JPL] Robin McKelle's CDR

What happened to the days when people programmed shows with music that 
sounded good?

Can you imagine how much music I'd be rejecting if a CD didn't have cut 
lengths printed on the back cover? Or if the text was difficult to read 
because of small size or poor color choice? The decision should be made by 
your ears and not your eyes.

Why would someone play music from an artist for a short period of time but 
pull it from rotation after that? By doing this we're telling the audience 
"This song is good enough for you to listen to right now - while we're doing 
some promotion - but after that you won't hear it again." That sounds just 
like the commercial stations that will play Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick 
Jr., Nat King Cole and other jazz legends when its time for holiday music, 
but not in any other month.
