My first program director was a bonehead, and how he ever got into radio as a PD is beyond me. New music in those days would come in weekly on a large reel, as in reel-to-reel, and you would get 15 to 20 songs per week. The PD would listen to them, decide what to play and tell us to record them off on carts. Carts were kind of like 8-tracks, for those of you who remember those. However, they were predetermined lengths of tape, and they were 4 tracks. So if you had a 3-minute song you would record them off on a 3 1/2 minute cart. Sounds simple enough right? Wrong!
