I apologize in advance if this has been asked before (Unless it was in a daily listening thread, because I refuse to reference those for any information)

Why doesn't the pad data display info for Worst Of's and Replays?

Is it a system issue in that it simply is not possible

Is it an issue of the people putting together the replays not wanting to spend any time on it?


I listen to most of the shows most days, but during replays I tend to listen to my ipod, however if the pad data said what bit was going as opposed to just "Thursday's Replay" I would be able to easily switch back so I can hear the bits I missed.


It's an even bigger problem with Worst Of's.... I assume based on today's "Saga of Al Dukes" that it is indeed possible to do (And if this hadn't been played repeatedly over the last few weeks in the hour between O&A and R&F I would have listened to it today)


It could even say (W/O - Erock gets shaved) or (R - Fez Strips)
to idicate that it is not "Live"


just wondering.

I believe someone would have to be there to change the pad data constantly throughout the worst of, whereas today it was easy since it was just "The Saga of Al Dukes" and not multiple bits like most worst ofs.

I am sure with the technology it can be done automatically when the program is created. But it has to be taken on account who is the end user to publish it, if its some stupid xm savage, who can not even spell Anthony's name right, well how much can you expect.

And if its one of the Boys staff, then they just dont like us.

Possibly, I really don't know how it all works. I vaguely remember the discussions back when the pad data didn't change during the show and they were campaigning with XM to be able to change it during the show. So perhaps it does need to be done automatically by someone in studio? How's about E-Rock, Sam, Danny or Than chime in?

I think Earl Douglas is in charge of doing pad data as he lives at the station. That should answer all questions. DN
