request order: 1,2,3,4,5
play order: 2,1,3,4,5
has anyone else noticed this?

SamboStrat wrote: no no, this has nothing to do with previuosly played artists. it is true that if an artist has just been played, you are not able to request it. if it's only in the queue, sam will (unfortunately) allow you to request it but then as soon as the q'd up song has played it'll bump your tune back - BUT: bumps due to this mean that your song won't play until like an hour or two later, depending on the artist.
my problem is different. let's take 5 bands / tunes that have NOT been recently played. the play order will simply reverse the first two requested tunes. they will still play as a block, so no bumping, except the first two positions will be switched as I wrote above.
the only consequence of this is that if i write an explanation of the block in the dedication of tune no. 1, it will only show up after the tune no.2 has already played.
