I'm on hold...

And they are playing a non radio-edit of Big Punisher's "Still not a Player". While I find this endlessly amusing, I wonder as to the professional ramifications of having this as hold music.

HA! That's bizarre.... I remember calling someplace that had an audio feed from MTV2's cable channel as their hold music...

there were no commercials
although i know people who use all kinds of feeds for stuff too. mtv2 would use a radio edit though, no?

Re: there were no commercials
probably, tho they aren't as strict as general broadcast because they are technically a subscribed cable channel

true
but mtv is pretty pussy these days - they cube out anything that might be misconstrued as something bad - i can't believe they would be running wide open versions.

we use our artists' music as hold music, and we never use censored copies of albums. Then again, we don't do much stuff on the profanity level of 'still not a player'. Plus, we're a music PR firm, so it's expected that we'd play all sorts of music. That's very surprising that a d-m firm would play that.

yeah
makes sense in your context. certainly made the hold time move - i'd jsut hate to think about customers who don't like rap/hiphop...

Our hold music is usually classical of some sort, but it's just a 5-CD changer. I have dreams of replacing it all with gangsta rap and Ministry the Misfits.
