I'm not sure if the exclusions in the online version of the Music Poll
were intentional, but there is no "strings" section, no "album art" section, and there is no "write-in" area for the Hall of Fame. There may even be more areas I didn't notice at first glance, but is this how you wanted it? It's sad that such a dependable publication could drop the ball, particularly on the Hall of Fame area, since the choices offered are quite limited. Also, there is no area that addresses classical musicians, composers, or musical theatre. Is Austin music becoming narrower in scope, or does the Chronicle
think it ought to use its great influence toward this end by eliminating certain categories instead of expanding the poll to reflect the variety of Austin's music scene? Curious.
