Can someone do a side by side analysis of the performance of Selector, Music
Master and Power Gold for comparisons sake?

This Week's JPL Sponsor: Barnstorm Productions - Charles Gatschet - STEP
Guitarist Charles Gatschet takes you on a musical journey from Bebop to
Brazil on his latest release STEP LIGHTLY. Growing up in Kansas City
afforded Charles the opportunity to work with such jazz notables as Claude
''Fiddler'' Williams, Bobby Watson, Carmell Jones and many others who have
made an impact on the K.C. jazz scene. With a stellar band featuring Ali
Ryerson, Greg Gisbert, Ken Walker, Mark Simon, Eric Gunnison and Paul
Romaine, Gatschet delivers an array of beautiful tunes, half of which are
his own. Quoting from Dr. Herb Wong's liner notes: ''Jazz
guitarist-composer Charles Gatschet's aesthetic backdrop and the music on
STEP LIGHTLY, indeed, ignite reasons to step lively with felicity of
Charles' mission in jazz.''
Blaise pretty much nailed it with what you can do with Selector. Selector is
the "industry standard" for programmers, but MusicMaster and PowerGold are
two other very good programs that are used by many radio stations. I use a
program in my home studio called Natural Music, which has all the basic
doodads that the above programs have, but much more affordable.
It's ironic that many jocks who program their own shows resist using this
tool (for a variety of reasons), yet they're the ones who could most benefit
from it. Putting together a creative and lively show takes a lot of prep
time... and having a sophisticated database of all your music, organized and
coded to your specifications, allows you to be more efficient in accessing,
organizing, and setting up your tunes. You could do something like this
using Access or Excel, but programs like Selector are like Excel on

I'm interested in getting a list of suggestions of the various music
scheduling softward programs that are currently being used. Which one do
you use and which one would you like to have? I'll just sit and watch the
parade of answers now.
