You need a better shredder.


It's got a 15 page capacity. How much of an investment am I supposed to make for a household shredder?

I can't stand then when certain radio stations insist on doing a promo first, so all you see is Playing Now on KWRZ Your Home of Classic Rock: Nei....

Aargh!


Or lazy DJ's who never updates info, so that it displays some bullshit song for an hour, forcing me to have to deploy Shazam to see what the hell the song actually is

If it's set up right the DJ shouldn't have to do anything. All that information should come from meta data in the audio being played.

The best shredder. The biggest. Okay. A shredder like you wouldn't believe. You have no idea, the kind of shredder.

some station on my dial either had their metadata crash/freeze, or they weren't updating it if they were doing it by hand. so for about 5 months, their song info was just "GREEN DAY AMERICAN IDIOT" in all caps
