Possibly due to my joint roles as a Technical Director at WFVR-LP and a DJ/presenter, I am often asked how I manage my iTunes library, and how I keep track of the music I have played on the air, as well as the music I must not ever play on the air. This post on ratings is the first of what I hope will be a collection of instructional articles.
This is how I manage my iTunes library when it comes to rating songs using iTunes’ 0-5 star (★) system, and my opinion that ratings don’t have to be a harsh criticism of a song, but can also used as an organizing tool. Reminder that this method is how I manage my weekly radio show, and is meant to provide flexibility and ease to large iTunes libraries. The comments will be open for a period of time after the post is live, so please share your tips.
