And I did a student station like that.

our new bin was much bigger. And I got to break format because I was the ONLY one who did the format perfectly. Now, people heard a lot of jazz reissues and deep cuts from popular albums, but I could even bring my own records in eventually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/30/14 10:05am tikk:

Wait, we don't get to hear the reason the Pitt DJs had to play 3 tracks from that certain bin?
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 10:07am Cecile:

I think this may be the reason: to prepare you for the "real" world. Never mind that I know plenty of free-form DJs that had no problem getting commercial or NPR jobs.

Hey there Randy, how the hades are you! Tell your staff I refuse to apologize for this cacaphonic holy mess you are bringing into there lives.

@tikk
It wasn't at Pitt, actually. And I couldn't tell you the reason, because there really is none. Basically, it is a way to enforce that DJs keep up with the new music that "the station" wants the DJs to keep up with. Crazy
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 10:08am Cecile:

you can't keep up with new music - there is too damn much!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/30/14 10:11am Alex In Illinois:

That we the rule when I DJed at WVKR, Vassar's radio station too. We had the bin of rotation records. We had to play something like one track from any three in the bin during the hour. I think the hourly station ID and the public service announcements we had to do for legal reasons. Then, senior year, they asked me to do an African music show once a week, which did not have any music rotation requirements. I still had to do the "PSAs" and the legal IDs, but beyond that, whatever music I played was up to me.

@tikk
Typically the reason that student radio stations enforce the playing of certain music is so that they can "report" those tracks and a) continue to get free records from those labels, and b) to look cool in certain publications that publicize radio station's playlists. Both are deeply insipid reasons, in my unhumble opinion.

Turn it UP, Randy. I swear it will help/

Hi Hoily in NC!!!! Bagpipes love you!

Keep breathing, Van. In, out, in, out. Good!

@Nine in PGH
I am not so flummoxed by the enforced reading of PSAs and station promos. I love having the freedom to NOT read them, but I don't mind that some stations feel the need to pay some lip service to community interests.

It is the enforced playing of music from specified CDs that I find revolting. If I do end up doing something on the air, I will use the "bin" records as talkover tracks.

YAHOO, ALEX!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/30/14 10:54am Uncle Michael:

Going way back to when this came up...since I was in the kitchen then. I believe there is a growing trend in college radio to emulate the commercial medium in order to justify the continued existence of the stations, course offerings, faculty and staff overhead, licensing, etc. The idea is that it's a training ground and they need to learn to be working professionals. It's long been this way for college television stations and newspapers so why should radio be any fun? One must learn to live with a crushed soul now, because that's how the real world is.

Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 10:59am northguineahills:

My college radio station was sold to clear channel just as I graduated HS, which was a shame, b/c it was good station. There was an ok one in Jacksonville until 1995.

You are making a rather large assumption there, Stanley. I'd like to think there is some inanimate matter pulled up in a comfy chair listening, too.

Hi Doug--after the last song I heard the beginning of one of your classic talkover tracks, but then it quickly switched to some other soul song, and while the web page says "Your DJ speaks" I'm not hearing that.

One tree clapping, anyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/30/14 11:09am Alex In Illinois:

@NorthGuineaHills: That is the most horrible college radio station story I have ever heard. I think that is worse than a few token "rotation bin" cuts per hours.

At University of Maryland, where my sister teaches, they have both a broadcast FM station (with Internet streaming) and an Internet-only station. But the weird thing is that they never have all of the time slots filled up. Their schedule has too many empty spots where they go off the air. When I was in college, there were more students and faculty wanting to have radio shows than available time slots.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 11:09am northguineahills:

yeah, what bobdc said. I think it went back to the stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/30/14 11:11am Doug Schulkind:

@bobdc
Hmmm. The talkover track I just played started with the fellow saying, "Hay Mabrey, why don't you play the organ, man?" And that's the name of the song. Did you not hear that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/30/14 11:12am Carmichael:

Good morning, Doug and Drumheads.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 11:12am northguineahills:

W/ no outlet, my friends did pirate radio until they got busted by the FCC after 2 years in operation. It was a mobile station as well.

Carmichael, your wheels?
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 11:13am northguineahills:

It cut right as he started talking.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 11:13am bobdc:

I did not hear that. I did just hear a sudden switch from an afrobeat-sounding thing to a more Ethio-jazz groove.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 11:14am Cecile:

I think there is so much emphasis on personal communication and having ones own "personal brand" that it's hard to get people collaborating. Also, to listen to radio you have to put the reins in someone else's hands. That's getting taught as being a bad thing.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 11:14am northguineahills:

The music on the stream and the playlist don't match.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/30/14 11:14am Doug Schulkind:

OH shite! It DID kick back to the stream. Thank you bobdc and NGH for tipping me off. I am always the last to know. I bet none of you heard my mic break. When the stream kicked it, it went to an Art Ensemble of Chicago cut, which you must have assumed was something I was playing. We are back online with Fitz Gore...

Sorrry everyone. I guess the universe didn't like my crack about inanimate objects.

Of course my favorite college radio station story that of WFMU, where the radio station outlived the college.

All blessings to Jeff Moore, the tech director at WFMU. He has all us streaming DJs making local recordings our shows in FLAC form so we can post higher-quality archives. This also means that the archives will be complete, without the stream drop-outs.

I did, however, start my high school radio station, which was the extreme end of freeform: chaos. And I volunteer DJ'ed at a local community radio station for nearly 20 years, playing a retro show much like Fool's Paradise, but without all the whizz bang effects Rex is known for.

Arwulf is still going strong. By the way, this link might be of interest to the drummer somers! An online archive of WCBN's Cornbelt Symphony from the late 70s: "scratchy records, in whatever condition we found them, broadcast over a college station, recorded off-the-air on cheap machines using cheap cassettes, stored for 35 years, then ripped to an mp3 file with almost no audio filtering or other post-processing"
