I want to remind everyone of the olio's Content Rules: if it sounds good, I'll put it in the playlist. I don't edit tracks to cut out any language, and I don't keep tracks off the stream due to ideas or imagery. The tracks you hear on cj's radio olio don't reflect any particular point of view. In the 100+ years of recorded sound, there have been performers (or occasionaly whole genres of music) that today we as a Society would not endorse or support. But, I feel that to ignore them completely would be to give a false version of History. I won't do that. It would be easier to get more listeners if I cut out certain tracks, and that's fine if that's what you are looking for. And I'd be lying if I said that I didn't want to have more listeners. But that's not what I started this webcast for three and a half years ago. I started it to share my eclectic tastes in music. And that's what cj's radio olio is about and will continue to be about. Remember what one of my Heroes, R.D.Davies said: "It's only music, only jukebox music".
Love and Peace.
