Rob- I looked at the music log for this morning. You posted this message at 8:31am and at that time the main page was displaying the correct music- Beethoven's String Quartet No. 3 was playing at that time. The On Air page was however a few minutes out of sync... the Bach Brandenburg Concerto was aired around 7:40am, just prior to the Beethoven String Quartet.Originally posted by Rob Richardson:
I like to know what I am going to hear when I enter B.com, but lately, I can't. There is almost no chance that the Now Playing information on the main page is accurate, and even the page that comes up when I click "Now Playing" under "On-Air" is no longer reliable. As I type this, the main page said that Beethoven's 3rd is being played, with a CPE Bach cello concerto next. The "Now Playing" page says the LAGQ is performing Back's 6th Brandenburg. And what I'm listening to is a string quartet!
This is extremely irritating . Could you please make sure that those screens are up to date?
Thanks very much!
I imagine that even a "request only" station sometimes accumulates a backlog of requests that will take a few hours to clear, and somebody has to decide on and document the order they will be played (even if it is good old FIFO). And are you allowed to reveal periods when the quantity of incoming requests dwindles, and what you do about it? But I do take your point about it being difficult and expensive to produce the software for publishing upcoming playlists on the website. What you do now is admirable.Originally posted by Nicole Marie:
If we planned hours ahead that would defeat the point of a request only station. We play the requests as they come in. Furthermore, IF we were a station that programmed hours ahead and for us to post that info, would require us to write a new program for the web site. Honestly, we don't want or have the time to do that.
They have Symphony Sunday. Whole works, and I think they preprogram the computer and then the deejays take the day off. You can do requests for this during the week, no guarantees that you'll hear it played when you're listening, and you have to figure out how to avoid the church service if you don't enjoy it.Originally posted by DavidS:
...Oh, and another question: Can you tell me what your general approach to playing complete works (not just eg 2 movements of a symphony) is?
That explains a lot!originally posted by HRH"
So a request that comes in at 8AM, chances are that that person is not listening at 3PM. When I get on the air I delete the requests that came in before 11AM.
Sure thing, but only if I can get my wages paid daily in M&M's (no brown ones!) and Mountain Dew. Oh yeah, and throw in a lifetime supply of Rice-A-Roni. :pOriginally posted by Nicole Marie:
