In this front cover article form November 1989, we hear from Johnny Mars, Frank E. Lee, Wendy Rice, and Tom Marker about their process of finding new music, and how XRT chooses what to put on air. They discuss sources like venues, publications, and reviewing the albums that get sent to the station.
The article is full of excellent advice that is absolutely timeless, unlike the totally awesome format that could not be more 80′s. You can get the full 4D Experience right here all weekend.
Check back as we post more selections from past issues of Inside XRT, our listener newsletter.
