Interesting comments.  

"4,000 songs - all good."  By whose standards?, I would be inclined to ask.

"musical advisers who lend us their libraries to make copies",  "sometimes listeners send us stuff"
"no copyright problems, because the station pays fees 
to the broadcast licensing agencies BMI and ASCAP."

I wasn't aware that ASCAP & BMI had any governance over copyright law.  

IIRC, radio stations (transmitting organizations) are allowed to make "ephemeral" copies for working purposes and they may not be used any longer than (?) 6 months from the first transmission date before being destroyed.  Unless preserved exclusively for archival purposes.
