Letter: Another Brick Wall

Just say "no thank you" ... or just "no"

Please let me add my 2 cents’ worth regarding music tracks that have been clipped and trashed with “brick-wall” audio processing (May 27, Opinion section).

The next time your radio station receives a CD or file that has been brick-wall limited, simply return it to the sender with an impersonal form letter saying “The music you have supplied is defective and/or unsuitable for broadcast. We do not air any material that is detrimental to our listenership,” or words to that effect.

If a few hundred radio stations return a few thousand, refusing to air them, perhaps the music producers and record labels will fix the problem.

We can only hope!
