Respecfully, I don't know what kind of radio program you think you're running (or failing to run!), but it's mad whack. I recommend playing songs that people, uh, like, like?! I request a set of American Idol artists, and/or X Factor artists, interspersed with commercials and funny 'shock jock'- or morning zoo'-style banter/stock (e.g., bullhorns, simulated body gas, etc.)
Yours in 'music',

11:05am RCinMT:@PN: Yeah, it's pretty great, isn't it? 9:22pm Eugene Bentley:Hey Bob!
Love the Steve Miller band 'Song For Our Ancestors' and Beatles 'Yes It Is' (highly underated B-side. Great Philly Soul from Thom Bell and the Delfonics (sometimes I wished they spelled their name the way you did).
9:36pm Eugene Bentley:There is a fairly decent single disc compilation of Steve Miller Bands selection from The Joker and prior "the Best of 1968-1973"-- nothing from his mega popularity in the late 70s and early 80s. That's how I got my first listen of Songs For Our Ancestors. There is also "Anthology". But as usually happens with these comps there is a few tracks left off that should have been on there.
