[JPL] Contributions, playlists, etc

Loiis makes a lot of good points.
I would note that I am also on a folk dj list, where the issue of playlists was resolved in the way some have proposed here:
Just put PLAYLIST in the subject line. Easy to delete, or easy to choose to read.
Also ready to contibute when it seems there is a firm plan for doing so. (maybe I missed that, am wading through a lot of emails after being out of town for a few days at the Folk Alliance conference in Memphis, and then being buried in piled up work upon return).

Might I suggest that you do a survey, Ed.  If you use surveymonkey.com - you
can get one consensus (with majority ruling) as to what folks would like to
see on the JPL opt-in. It costs $19.95 for one month.  That's one contribution. 

Personally, I like seeing playlists, it's information that is useful for me
to pass on to my clients. It's also very interesting, IMO, what people are
playing not only locally but around the world.  The discussion on Charles
Tolliver's "With Love" was also thought provoking. It related to radio and ears of
programmers, and for me it spurred discussions with my clients including David
Weiss and Charles Tolliver, Groov Marketing and DLMedia . Personally, I think
that's what this list should about first and foremost - radio - whether
terrestial or virtual. Promotion and hipping us to something you've heard or something
you're doing  that special is also of interest.

At Ed's urging, I also suggested to my clients that they join the JPL list,
but cautioned them not to post their gigs or overhype, but instead learn and
discuss.  This is an invaluable service to them, and I've read with interest
what many have said in the last few days. 

I don't like seeing links to articles about jazz. Much of that can come from
a google alert and we often discuss them at length on our bulletin board and
the same ones are circulated on other bulletin boards and user groups. 

I think people need to distinguish between a list serve and a bulletin board.
 And I think with a survey, Ed will be able to discern what people want and
don't want to see on this list. With 600 or so subscribers, there are going to
be differences of opinion, as any good discussion should have, and I think a
simple survey will shed some light of what most people would like to have on
here and what they don't.

Peace and light
