Commercial radio plays the same old, tight rotation of music and with very limited regard to introducing new or innovative artists and their music. He believes in entertaining and educating his listening audience. Monet the DJ aka Mix Master Neal C has a great talent for finding new music & musical artists. With the invention of the internet and audio technology there is a whole new world for people to create music and get it to the public. With the introduction of internet radio music programmers are free to create and showcase new talent and music while still respecting and showcasing popular and classic music. Thus Monet the DJ was born.
