Don't Trust a Computer

BBLO2 #41 > Every week, the computer system at CFAI either doesn't play the last song(s) of "Bernard Brule Les Ondes, Vol. 2" or one of them gets an early fade-out.

I've come to expect it.

This week, I expected the last track, Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music, Part 1", to get cut after the first 2 minutes or so. Instead, the whole track played and the usual post-BBLO2 dance music only began at 2:11AM.

It's great that the Lou Reed track was played but the moral of this story is that a computer-initiated fade-out will not be there if you expect it to be.

.... But it will be there if you don't want it.
