I do try to please the audiance. In most cases I will remove stuff that people do not care for.
However, the Lady Sovereign tracks (and other completely random tracks that do not belong in a techno playlist)are, well, my creative flaire.
That is one of the few things that separates all of these stations from one another, at least in my case. Any techno station is going to be loaded with remixes of popular bands, tiesto, oakenfold, Sasha, maybe a little BT if the owner is brave, armin van buren, atb, blah blah blah. This much was know.
I try to stay away from those major names because I want to play something different. Something people have not listened to before. Yes, that means I take huge hits in listener counts most of the time, but I really don't give a hoot. When something like Oakenfold comes on the stream gets packed full.
So I get clever. People think I am using a random playlist. I don't. No suffle here. Takes hours to build one. Just enough big name songs with random people mixed in with the occasional Lasy Sovereign.
From people that I know, I have turned a lot of them on to some rather obscure and lesser known artists. Some of em have said that they actually kinda like it....
