Scott Wirt

MusicMaster (A-Ware Software)

Brookfield, WI, USA

Scott started in radio in Milwaukee, WI in the early 1980s, working as an on-air personality, talk show producer, music programmer and more. He was also learning computer programming and using these skills for various projects at the radio station and for a family business. Early in the process of designing a music scheduling system to replace programming received from a satellite service, Scott met Joe Knapp and decided to use his system, already on the market and known at that time as MusicScan. Later, Joe and Scott would team up in New Berlin, WI, opening the first offices of A-Ware Software in 1988. Scott later created the Windows-based version of MusicMaster and continues to manage and develop that product and others.
