Well, the fourth quarter has definitely kicked in and it seems that every few days another major release is landing on the desk of the PDs. Problem is … where to find the spins for all the songs that deserve to move up on rotation when there are “impact spins” that must take those slots? What to do, what to do? PDs are having more and more trouble balancing the big releases with the songs already on the chart needing to move up, a lot of good work records are sure to get in lost in the shuffle.
