This is my first post. I've been playing in the contest for decades. I'd like to suggest something designed to make the contest run a little more smoothly.
Why not give the DJ's an "engineer" to help them in the booth? If the DJ had someone to help them cue up the next song or the next promo, they would have a little more time to look over the questions before they read them.
Back in the day, I did some time behind the mic at WWSP (not during the contest---I wasn't going to give up playing in order to DJ). I know that even without the pressure of having to read questions, it could get hectic. Even without the pressure of the largest audience of your life, or the fact that every listener is hanging on your every word, or the feeling that if you mess up you will become a laughing stock, or the fact that these oldies are usually pretty short songs that leave little prep time, even without all those pressures, it can be complex.
I know that in the "real world" that DJs are ususally on their own and they just have to deal with it. But I also know that bigtime DJs or radio hosts always have help in the booth with them. TRIVIA is as bigtime as WWSP gets. The DJs will appear more professional if they have those few extra seconds to look at the copy before they read it. They could even ask their engineer how to pronouce words if necessary (before they go on the air). I know that the WWSP staff is probably at their limit, but an extra pair of hands in the booth would make both the DJs and the contest seem a little more professional (maybe that's not a goal). It would also prevent some questions from being thrown out or having to be repeated.
I can't imagine that this has never been discussed by the staff and maybe there just are not enough people. I just know that it's easy for all of us know-it-alls in town to be critical of the DJs. I don't think it's necessarily fair, and I think that something could be done to help.
P.S. Obviously, the seasoned pros who DJ the contest don't need help, but obviously some of the newbies do---and maybe the pros wouldn't complain if they had a little extra help either.
