Top 30 Safe Songs from the School Dance Network

May 22, 2012 by Ric Hansen

Thanks to Daryl Thomas at 1-800-DISC JOCKEY who had several great ideas to help improve the School Dance Network service, we have added a new column in our TOP 30 safe song list.  From now on, when we add songs to the list we will identify them as being appropriate only for High School aged kids (not middle schoolers).  As you know some songs are safe enough for High School aged kids, but simply are over the top for younger students.  Keep in mind when they are cleared for High Schools it is only if the song has a clean radio edit, not necessarily in its original form.   This week’s adds include “Leave You alone” by Young Jeezy…and that has been cleared for High schoolers only.

Also,if you have a listing in the 1-800-DISC JOCKEY directory, you can now be identified in your listing as a “Responsible DJ” if you are a DJ member of the School Dance Network.  Join Here.
