I'm getting set to print a CD and a friend sent this list of suggestions from a DJ. I'm good with 1, 2 and 4 but I don't know what he means by "Make sure your CD has the song titles, times, album title and artist all electronically placed on the CD before sending it out." I thought CDs were generally just audio data.
So, assuming he's not crazy, how do I get that information in there? I use Logic Express 8 for recording and iTunes to burn the CD.
4 wishes from a DJ to artists concerning the CD's you send out for airplay
(1) Make all the information on your CD cover readable (i.e. no red type
face on an orange background, no font size so small that it could only be
read with a microsope). I'm old, I need all the visual help I can get.
(2) List the song name(s) and the playing time for each on the CD cover.
I can't squeeze a 6:12 song into a 3:45 space.
(3) Make sure your CD has the song titles, times, album title and artist
all electronically placed on the CD before sending it out. I have stopped
typing in the information for CD's that come to me with no e-info on the
disc. And that means it doesn't get played on my program. Submitting the
disc info to Gracenote or similar databases is a good thing.
(4) PLEASE let me know if you've used an f-bomb or some other off-colour
language in a song. I hate being surprised (and embarassed) when you don't
tell me about language issues. (Think of the George Carlin's bit called "7
Words". Heed it)
