Guidelines for music submissions.


A note to listeners: This posting is a list of the most commonly played recent CDs, and those just added during the previous week on the station's contemporary arts programming. It is intended for artists and record companies to see whether their recordings are featured on the station. It is not a direct song-by-song listing of programming. Since every program every day features different music, the station does not have the staffing resources to type up and post every item played. The on-air staff is scrupulous about announcing each and every piece of music along with the album title and, on the new releases segments, record company information. So if you hear something on Mixed Bag or All That Jazz that intrigues you, stay tuned, it WILL be announced. In case you miss the announcement, listeners inquiring about music are advised to phone 570-655-2808 (rather than e-mail) as soon as possible after the recording airs, before the CD (or LP) is filed away, and retrieving the information is more time-consuming for the staff.
Thank you,
George Graham
