I've heard that jocks at River 92.5 get to select two songs per hour,
and even those two have to be in their master playlist database.

Besides those two, the rest of the hour is playlisted song for song.
Perhaps whoever does the playlists may do good creative job, but
it's not the jocks selecting the tunes.
