Do you run a small playlist or wide variety?

We run a fairly large playlist of about 1000 tracks, it still unbelieveably gives us a lot new music first then some old, and back to the new....usually though all the new music is played back to back in the wee hours of the morning....but that's how our scheduler is, so i dont change it

Well I'm an addict to SAM Broadcaster :-)

so the format is sheduled by the clockwheel (see config)

that clockwheel loads the songcategory when it has to be aired

In general I'm working at my project with 2 main directories

first of all there are the visible playlists who can be seen at the tab On Demand Request at the website .. this contains about 5000 tracks and they are Weekly updated with new tracks

secondly I use some invisible aka hidden playlist directories into SAM who shedule random songs in between the clockwheel format (these has about 1000+ tracks)

As people may know listeners at my project can make realtime requests .. by using the invisible playlists the general format is fixed this way into my way :) .. otherwise it can happen that to many times the same music is played .. so I make some adjustements to still achieve the general type of format

i have 2186 tracks in rotation right now, it's not half of all i have of this kind of music, i specialize on 80's italo disco.. it's a kind of happy sounding summermusic from the 80's, almost all from origin made by italian producers..

so, my clockwork plays them, 10 points off when played, 5 points added when requested.. it's almost 14 days of music 24/7

around 322 hours of music ;)

I'm no radio station owner, but as a broadcaster that's been into the radio biz for almost 3 years I will say it is good in my opinion to have a larger playlist for a station pending on the type of genre the station is. For example if you was running a country station it would be alright to run a playlist of country songs that mixes it up with today's country music and throwing in some 80's and 90's country. I know a few local country stations that does that and a few people that works for those country stations that does it. That's just my opinion and I believe you can gain more listeners that way, You don't wanna play the sane song once every 1 or 2 hours you wanna be able to keep your listeners by mixing it up.
