As the Operations Manager and Program Director of 2 highly visible stations in the Dallas/Ft Worth radio market, we use music-scheduling software daily. These programs can be a complex piece of software and even after 20 years of using it I still have questions. EBI’s services have been an amazing tool that has helped me open up the full potential of the application.

“Whenever I call Earl to ask a question or to help make sure I have optimized my database, he takes his time and has made himself available at a moment’s notice. I STRONGLY suggest using EBI if you use music-scheduling software. What an amazing tool which has given me an advantage over my competitor.”

“I’ve known Earl and have utilized the services of Earl Boston Inc. for nearly ten years. Music-scheduling programs are complex and sophisticated but more importantly, they cannot be compared to any other program used in broadcast media. Not only is it essential for your programmers to understand the tool that generates the sequences of songs aired on your station, but just as important that each station’s database is routinely monitored to reinforce scheduling accuracy. I can count on EBI and highly recommend his services.”

“I had the great pleasure of working with Earl Boston of EBI for over four years. Before working with him it would take such a long time to schedule a day’s music log. Today that time has been reduced to 15-20 minutes. It was through his continual guidance, training and expertise that allowed me to spend less time manually adjusting songs for playback and to be more efficient with data entry and database maintenance. I also mastered the best ways to code each song’s individual attributes designed to describe the characteristics of the songs in my library along with a clear understanding of the separation rules. These effective techniques increased my stations time spent listening, thus giving my station an advantage over my direct market competitor. I use that extra 20-30 minutes to focus on other daily tasks. In addition, I also gravitate to the accessibility of Earl Boston. If there is a problem, no matter the size, he responds immediately and works directly with you to find an effective solution. I can always depend on EBI.”
