I have a large selection of music. It is important that the music played is the music you want to hear. If you need ideas, I can provide a list of the top 500 requested songs. You can select your favorites. This gives me suggestions on what types of music you like. There is also a space for special requests, and songs you don’t want to hear. Some clients prefer to provide a list. All
