PAL is short for Playlist Automation Language. PAL scripts are mini-programs that can be executed inside SAM Broadcaster to accomplish almost anything! For example, many stations use a PAL script to load shows at specified times or to keep the queue full of songs according to custom playlist rotation rules.

PAL is based on the Delphi programming language. Many SAM users have found the Delphi Basics site useful in gaining a better understanding of PAL's functionality.

See PAL (Playlist Automation Language) for more information about PAL and some sample scripts.
