Song time-keeping

There are two ways to keep track of the time when a song was played:

Start-duration-end time is pretty much only used by CPB stations with webcasts and usually only during their quarterly webcast reporting periods. It is quite cumbersome for DJs.

Time-stamps are very valuable information, especially for listeners. The principal use of Spinitron by the listening public is to look up what was played during a program – often after the fact when time-stamps are very helpful to identify the songs of interest.

Disabling all time-keeping is possible but not recommended. It is disadvantageous for listeners and makes checking and sorting playlists harder.
