Radio Station Scavenger Hunt – Genre Color Code Signs Part 5

KFJC Record Library Sign

Wrapping up the radio station scavenger hunt for this week, I’m sharing one more music genre color code sign. This “library legend” sign comes from KFJC, where I’m a DJ. In my travels, I’ve seen incredibly complex systems for categorizing music libraries. There are often many sub-genres and different colors of tape are sometimes affixed to an album or CD to indicate that it is industrial or folk or IDM.

KFJC embraces a much simpler genre classification system, with all of the music filed into a small number of categories: A library, B library, soul, jazz, blues, soundtracks, comedy, country, hip hop, reggae, classical, international, and new age (really!).

Come back, next week the radio station scavenger hunt will resume with another item.
