Add date = arbitrary date set for when labels and promoters would  
like to have their CDs added to rotation.

Street & Release Dates are the same thing.

Guess you can't hold back great music (Gladys) or in the case of the  
Krall CD good music.

Since CDs are usually not available to consumers until the street /  
add date there would be the concern that one is playing music nobody  
can purchase for themselves yet.  So of course one would hope a DJ /  
announcer playing a CD before the street / release date would be  
sensitive to perhaps frustrating / alienating listeners and qualify  
that action by saying something about the CD not being available yet  
or will be out on XX Date, etc.
