that comes across our desks? What factors go into determining whether or
not a CD is chosen for airplay on a station?
2:45 p.m. --- Technology: Automation as an Alternative to Live Radio
More stations are going towards automation, replacing live program
hosts, due to the economic downturn. What are the technologies that are

As CDs are being replaced in virtually every other music genre, are you
ready to convert your station to digital downloads, or other
alternatives? What to do with that CD collection at your station ... and

ensue in which stations can share how this information is provided.
