The Mystery of the New Playlist

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, WBJC News | 3 Comments

Welcome to the new and most excellent WBJC web playlist!  After endless hours of meetings and discussion it is finally up and running!  I personally think it’s fabulous, but there has been some concern from a few listeners/members regarding the new format.

It is indeed true that you now have to do two extra clicks to obtain the full listings that were available at the front of the site before.  This is our sneaky way of getting you to look at our fabulous new site!  Unlike the previous site which had very little content we are determined that the new WBJC web site will have lots of interesting stuff!  So stick around and enjoy it!

Some people have remarked that we are no longer publishing future web listings of pieces.  This is indeed correct!  The reason being that according to our agreement with Sound Exchange, which facilitates WBJC being allowed to stream our station free of charge, we are not allowed to publish advance listings.  There is some disagreement over the legality of posting advance listings and WBJC wishes to err on the side of caution.  We are still trying to figure out a proper solution to this problem and hope to figure out something that will satisfy those of you who want advance listings sometime down the road.  Please bear in mind that the site has only been up for a few days.

    Thanks, Jonathan, for clearing up some of the playlist stuff… has there been a change to Sound Exchange from someone else re the streaming? In other words, the advance listings were on the old website… just curious. The new website is really great; any… well, let’s say heartburn, for lack of a better word, over the new playlist format is easily overcome! (Weird, what would the legality issues be about advance listings?) I agree, better to be cautious… I’d hate to lose the streaming feature; can’t receive the station over the air in that blockhouse where I work!

    Regards,

    Doug
