Community Radio Manual Advertising/Traffic Cue Sheet Preparation
A lot of community radio stations spend a lot of time live to air and because of
this advertising scheduled into automation does not always get played at the right
times. This simple software system designed from scratch in Australia for an Australian
Community Radio Station allows you to schedule advertising spots and then have them
slotted into the rotation automatically and evenly for you according to pre-determined
rules. You can then easily edit the selected schedule. It also allows for extensive
auditing of the type and quantity of advertising being played in every hour and generates
APRA reports of any music used. Called a “god send” by one of its earliest purchasers
we are very pleased to be able to now offer it for free to local community stations.
A lot of use to a lot of jocks for a long time now available for free because we’d
like the updates to become a community project by which everyone can benefit. If
you are computer savy (and have a lot of time on your hands) you might like to do
some updates on the two databases and email them back in (and yes we will be checking
the contents in case some spammer tries it on). If anyone shows any interest we will
update the installer package with the extra quizzes and info for everyone.
To add a piece of trivia just open the “index.dll” file in the “c:\program files\robot
tricky quizzes” folder in notepad and add each piece of trivia on its own new line.
To add a quiz open the “search.dll” file similarly and add question then answer each
on their own line (you’ll see how it works from what's there already). (yes we know
there “.dll” files..we were being sneaky..)
