Thank you BH,

Have you used other music scheduling software?  Can you give a side by side 
comparison of say, Selector v. PowerGold?  How many JPLer's use music 
scheduling software and are there other varieties other than Selector, Power 
Gold and Music Master?  I am keenly interested in getting a package for 
WCPN.

Aloha,

Bobby

This Week's JPL Sponsor: Barnstorm Productions - Charles Gatschet - STEP 
LIGHTLY

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.''

I use Powergold. Nick is so right about scheduling software, it allows for 
much better preparation and you have control over the flow from song to 
song, hour to hour, etc. Like Blaise, I have different clocks for different 
hours, different announcers, including holiday programming and whatever else 
we might offer.

Bobby-



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 
steroids.

Esteemed JPLer's

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.


Aloha,

Bobby Jackson
