Hello Alt.-Specialty hosts! What's in your CD player? Is the CD still important in how you select music for your show, or have we moved into the digital age completely? Do you prefer physical CD's over digital versions? There is something about holding that shiny disc in your hand...stacking them in order as you lay out your show.

The consumer has moved almost totally to digital, especially for consumers under the age of 30. But are you, as a host, more likely to play a CD delivered in the mail as opposed to downloading a file? Do you program your playlists away from the station, so that the music for your show is not in the station’s digital music library? I remember various Music Directors having stacks of CD's, and they usually had some kind of order regarding how they were stacked. It was also in your face, which seemed to be important at one time. A digital file can end up out of sight and, therefore, out of mind!

For me, I'll be honest, since I am not doing my FTP New Music Show 'live' and I send them via dropbox to stations, I’m almost exclusively digital now. I'd love to hear your philosophy. Is it about the touch, the artwork or “just give me the track, I'll know if I like it when I hear it, I ain't got time to put a CD in a player!” The times have changed and we want to know what works for you. And with that being said, what do you do with your old CD's?

What is going on Adult Hits WCFF (92.5 The Chief) in Champaign, IL? Have you visited www.WeHackedYourRadio.Com? It looks nefarious!

It reads: "92.5 The Chief has been hacked," with a list of demands.

"WARNING!

"Comply by February 26th or else we break out the Tony Orlando records. PERMANENTLY!"

I guess we will find out tomorrow, but by the looks of it I'm sure it isn't Adult Hits anymore.

Have a great week, thanks for the playlists, and if you actually read this far down, what is your favorite color?
