. An attempt by New York City
to regain its ratings footing against rhythm and blues
. Mastermixes were custom KTU-only remix
es of top hit records, sort of a homogenized
version of how a disco DJ
might mix them; Shep Pettibone was the main man, but there were several other DJs, I think. Ratings success begat a Mastermixes
LP or two, but the material was pretty old by then. Bad idea.
BLS ultimately triumphed in the ratings wars.
