Re: The Beat Chicago Sal! - Re: Wish they'd do this for B-96
In that time period, they hired people to listen to stations 24/7 and log EVERY song played. If the person did not know the song, they would call the jock (yes there was no VT and computer hard drives at that time weren't running station yet, like now) asking what song was played. Funny during a format change, you would see the list go dead or have blanks, shock for the person monitoring the stations!
Eventually all the songs were encoded and a computer keeps track these days.
