Once a radio show is created, its management area can be accessed by the owner, staff members and the producer/host of the show.
From the Dashboard, you can see some basic information of the radio show. The schedule of this show for example is on weekdays from 14:00 to 17:00. The show ID is required if you want to embed the show on your website using the respective API widgets.
Using the broadcast link settings you can connect via a third party IceCast V2 compatible broadcasting tool like BUTT, MIXXX or Rocket Broadcaster. You can find tutorials on compatible tools here.
From the Management area of the show, you can invite people to host the show or set episodes for the next scheduled slots if you are not going to have a live connection.
You can add up to six people to the show and have a collaborative show using the Virtual Studio. Here is how to do that.
Once you schedule a show in a station you can set specific episodes of the schedule and organise the content that will play.
This helps you plan ahead and organise your shows long before the actual broadcasts.
You can schedule an episode based on the scheduled slots available according to the Station's schedule.
First, select the days on which you wish for the episodes to air
Then, go to the media tab and select a playlist or load a previously played episode. You can upload tracks through the Show Episodes. All the files uploaded here are part of the personal library of the user that uploads them. These audio files do not belong to the station.
In the case above, we have selected to load a playlist called "new" and we can see the files that it includes as well as the duration estimation for the media on this episode. In case that the media duration is longer than the scheduled slot, this doesn't mean that the episode will keep playing for as long as needed in order to play all the files. The show will stop on the time set as scheduled in the station's schedule.
Add a new schedule
You can create new schedules from this area, too. Add a new episode and click on the "add new schedule" option.
In the following screenshot you can see that we have created two main episodes for this show. The one starts on Wednesday, 11th of January and the other one on Monday, 16th of January.
From the tab Profile, you can make changes to the title, logo, cover photo, tagline, description and tags of the show.
In the History of the show, you can see the media files that had been scheduled and aired during past airing times of the show.
In the show's Settings, you can delete the show (be warned that this is permanent), add a backup playlist or check the broadcast link.
