I don't know about crashing, but approximately since Audience Engine debuted, seems to me it's taking longer for DJs to get their playlist page online. Or if not taking longer, at least appearing later.

I love the story of the recording of Like A Rolling Stone. The organ player just happened to slip in and the producer wanted him to leave but Dylan was like, nah nah he can stay. And its hard to imagine the studio version without the organ now.

Not that anyone was probably actually wondering, but the reason I started talking about Oldsmobiles for absolutely no damn reason is that this morning when I woke up I blearily jut hit "play" on the remote control for the audio streamy player, and didn't realize until much later that it had been paused on a Ken archive from last month - where that Oldsmobile industrial song "Talk About a Rocket" was played - instead of the live stream. I mean, it definitely sounded like a Ken show when I expected a Ken show, so nothing made me look at the display...

Jeez.
