MusicMaster: 25 And Still Scheduling
January 8, 2008 at 1:35 PM (PT)
They're cooking a mighty big birthday cake for MUSICMASTER, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with its 2,500 users. Founded by JOE KNAPP, the music scheduling software has been known as REVOLVE, MUSICSCAN and, since 1995, MUSICMASTER.
They've come a long way since STEVE SCHRAM ran the first music log at WZZU/MILWAUKEE in 1983. "From the Ohio Scientific and Radio Shack TRS-80 computers we started with to the software we have today, it’s been quite a journey," KNAPP said. "I couldn't be more thrilled with the explosive growth of the MUSICMASTER for Windows platform and it’s acceptance by our many new customers around the world. Building a better music scheduling program has been our primary goal since day one."
"What JOE KNAPP and SCOTT WIRT have developed is truly a phenomenal tool for today’s music programmer," VP/COO MARK BOLKE added. "It has been a bit of a David vs. Goliath fight for market share, which makes each of these milestones so much more rewarding."
