Yesterday, Ears To The House published an article originally headlined “Is Jesse Saunders promoting house – or himself?”. The article itself queried why only Chicago DJ Jesse Saunders seemed to be doing interviews on the subject of the history of house music for the mainstream press outlets currently taking an interest in the genre.
Since publication, a few people inside the team have expressed some dissatisfaction with the chosen headline, saying it doesn’t reflect the contents of the article. So we’ve changed the headline to “Why are the press only talking house with Jesse Saunders?” – something we believe is more accurate.
