How Do I Schedule A Radio Recording?

Are you about to miss a broadcast? Schedule a backup event to take over in the event that you are unavailable. When you add new events to your calendar, you have a few choices. For instance, you may choose a playlist, the length of the presentation, and whether or not it should repeat.
Three different event kinds are available in the advanced section.
Playlists: Plays the playlist you've picked for the length of the event. Live DJs: Establishes a live connection for the length of the event with a selected DJ. The playlist will be utilized in the case that the Live DJ is unable to perform. Live Relays: For the course of the event, broadcast the chosen relay.
In the case that a relay connection cannot be established, the playlist will be utilized as a backup. Select a playlist and plan its start, length, and playback time for times when you will be unavailable. Alternatively, team up with friends or DJs to take over stations during the live DJ event. If no one is available, relay other stations such as connected programming or partner broadcasters.
