California Libraries Flooded With Lame CDs
A Hard Hitting Report from MTV on a shocking and outrageous problem that plagues California librarians: lame CDs."It's kind of a shock to see things you'd expect at a garage sale," said Steve Sloan, supervising librarian of Sunnyvale Public Library, whose shipment will include 16 copies each of Martin's Sound Loaded and Everclear's Songs From an American Movie, Vol. Two, 14 copies of Simpson's lackluster Irresistible and nine copies of Christina Aguilera's 2000 Christmas album. "It's like what you'd see if you walked into a used-CD store and went to the dollar bin. It seems like the record companies are going through their warehouses and donating what won't sell."Is ths the kind of lame music we want our children exposed to in a public library?
