I was wondering...
Now I know how it works in the real world... A music director will use a software package such as RCS Selector to schedule music that goes into the software that runs the system which in turn plays the scheduled music and the deejay just fills in the voice or makes small changes as required.
but how do you do it on an online station? Now I'm not talking about stations who have only the owner as a deejay and everything is always off the same computer but for those of you who have deejays from around the world. What I've been accustomed too, is each deejay comes on with their show. Some stations may adhere to a format and others don't. My station is quite new and it doesn't adhere to a format per say. Although it seems to lean towards rock and classic rock with some Top 40 sprinkled in and one Punk Rock Show(ok it doesn't lean nowhere does it :-)
Anyways, I'm trying to decide if that is the best way to do it. Or should I be scheduling music and then sending the playlists to my deejays to play or what??? I'm just not sure what the norm is. I take it stations like Hitzradio are more organized with a preprogrammed playlist but I don't know if I want to go that far.
Just curious how you do it really...
