    If Entercom PDX is so tech savvy...why did they keep using ENCO? LOL. 8)

    When I first started at Entercom, I thought they owned Enco because of the name similarity. I couldn't think of any other reason they would use such a ham-handed system. They just keep it because it's too expensive to switch to Audio Vault or Next Gen. Those would be a lateral move, anyway.

    I wish Apple would design a radio user/automation system!

    Entercom's company-wide website template needs some serious modernization too.

    Enco: I remember using that system, early on. It was oustandingly awful. AV is SO much better...a great all-around operating system.

    Apple doesn't make one but there are several third party OS X solutions.
