Team Effort

I had to fill a few hours on-air today with content as I was alerted to a volunteer presenter being unwell. The playout system I work with is Simian, which is used by a number of stations in Australia including a major commercial network and accompanied by the Natural Software suite of log creation products.

Being involved with a general community broadcaster it’s important to have a system that allows for multiple formats and has an extensive library of music available. At present I have compiled over 8000 songs which I like to this is pretty impressive as I manually prepare these for the system and I started from nothing. To determine what to source, I monitor major station playlists and also make use of some of the great chart books available from here. I’m hoping to get the volunteers to help compile from the┬ámost wanted list.
