In this past week, we cleaned the slate! We wiped all our music clean. We threw all the music into one giant folder. I used iTunes to re-tag most all of the songs. It’s very easy with iTunes. During this period, on my other computer, I ran iTunes over the air. I used their new Genius feature that, like Pandora, takes my music selection and designs a smart playlist of music that sounds good together. You might have heard that for a couple days. The only limitation to that is it can only make a list of 100 songs at a time. This is only 6 hours or so. Anyway, it was cool and it worked great!
If you’ve listened closely, you might have heard some strange artifacts of this recent music library re-do. I have. I heard, on rare occasion, a Christmas tune that worked it’s way into the mix. The reason this happened is pretty simple. In process of re-tagging all my songs, I must have missed a few that were either mis-tagged or not tagged at all. The main tag I am referring to is the Genre tag. I currently have about 7,500 songs in the database. This makes for a huge job of managing it all. Over the next days, I will continue to fix and correct these goofs.
Meanwhile, if you catch one of these jewels, just let the spirit of the season flood over you for the moment! Look at it as a free preview to the flooding of Holiday Music that is only a few months away! As always, I am working hard to make KXRT the best internet radio station! Thanks for your patience and understanding.
