FAR charts are compiled from reports sent in by actual DJs with freeform (ie no playlists) radio shows on public, college and community stations round the country (and in Australia).  Each of them lists the four albums they took most pleasure in playing, one of which can be their Album of the Month (designated by a * and their initials).  Albums reported do not have to be new releases, but should, for choice, still be available.

Please welcome to the FAR:
Paul Daly, KSYM, San Antonio; pkdaly@earthlink.net
John Hauser, KOOP, Austin, TX; jlhauser@worldnet.att.net
Rod Moag, KOOP, Austin, TX; rmoag@mail.utexas.edu

There are a lot of problems with KOOP, but John (country) and Rod (Western Swing & rockabilly) put on great shows. Paul is the mastermind behind the very fine Third Coast Music Network website and one of the regular DJs.
