My radio station has listeners across the globe. So, I create 8 hour schedule of my radio and repeat it three times a day for listeners in different time zones to listen. So far, I was doing this manual and now trying to leverage the SAM Broadcaster's automation. How can I achieve this?
I have been thinking in the following lines
1. Create about 16 Playblocks of 30 minutes (my each program duration) and schedule them. Repeat the whole set three times a day.
The problem with this approach is when the playblocks are repeated they pick the next songs in the series based on the rules and hence it is not the same program repeated, but equivalent next set.
2. Use directly the scheduler task to pick tracks and add them to the queue and make a loop. This way the exact program repeats for the different time zones.
The problem is since the content (music) files are of different duration, I am not able to determine the number of tracks to be picked for making the 30 minutes duration. I would not be sure that the overall schedule is also 8 hours in duration.
I am running out of ideas. Looking for help from this expert audience.
Thanks & Regards,
