JudyB After recording a CD then what? (55* d) RE: After recording a CD then what? 13 Jul 06

A question for Ron (or others in radio) -

Most projects I'm involved with have gone the "lyrics on the web" route, partly because of the expense of printing the larger insert. As a consumer, I generally prefer that as my aging eyes have a hard time reading the booklets, especially when "artistic" fonts and colors are chosen.

But I do see why printed lyrics would be useful for a radio station. Do you think it would work if one included printed lyrics attached to the CD with a rubber band (so to speak)? Would they need to be CD-size so they could be tucked inside once the shrink-wrap was removed? Or should we really un-shrink-wrap the CD, put the insert inside our standard insert, and take it to a shrink-wrap place to put it back together again? (No one will ever know....)

I don't know how much of an issue it is - there aren't that many stations that play our type of music, so I doubt if Charley sends that many CDs to radio stations. But if he does, we would like to do whatever would make them most likely to be given a listen.
