Why are people doing it? I don't have an answer that doesn't involve profanity about bestiality.
Corollary to the point about letting people listen to their own music:If you let someone listen to their own track, don't just switch to something else randomly in the middle of the track! This happened to me quite often at RMAF this year. There were one or two tracks that I wanted to hear in the rooms I was most interested in, and each of these tracks started slow and built over time. They were often just about to get to the point that would really test the system when the vendor would just switch back to their own music.I'm not saying vendors can never switch back - if a bunch of new people come into the room or something, I don't know. But they should at least have the respect to ask the attendee that requested and is listening carefully to this track they care about if it's alright to switch back due to this or that. It's no use to allow people to request music on your system if you're not willing to go all the way and let them hear their stuff. Realize there will be some awful (to you, and probably other show-goers) music that is requested. And it may sound like shit on your system. But as Pez articulated quite well, that's should be fine, and is sometimes intentional on the part of the show-goer to see how the system sounds with shittily-recorded music. I, for one, would be fine with you telling others in the room that this was a request of an attendee, and that you'll be switching to something else shortly. Hell, bring a sign that says "attendee-requested song" or something like that, so that when someone new walks into the room they know what's going on in there, and that you'll be cueing something else up shortly if they don't like what they hear.
I agree with most of the comments here but I think it is unrealistic to think that each room should have the ability to play any music in any format that people show up with. I would expect every room to have the ability to play CDs. The popularity of vinyl with the audio show crowd would suggest to vendors that they have a turntable setup too. And it doesn't have to be a $100k TT. Beyond that, people are expecting too much from these people.If they don't let you play your own music then they should expect people to be disinterested in their products.
