"A Little Off Most of Our Radars"

The post title is how I heard a KDFC announcer describe Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw. I mean, it's amazing that one of Shaw's works made the "Classical Top 100" garbage contest that KDFC does every year, but is that ever a tell. They've played enough Shaw that the piece they were playing got the votes to be in 54th place; they have the reach to get Shaw or any other composer "on the radar" of their listeners, and yet they make this bogus claim.
