As we have already said, if you are presenting the Buzzing Music Mix then the music will be pre-populated for you, but perhaps you really don’t like a song , perhaps there is a song that perfectly fits with some content you want to include or perhaps something comes up that is entirely inappropriate for the mood of the nation, for example, one station infamously played Tracey Chapman’s Fast Car after the announcement of Princess Diana’s death.
You can add music to the station if you have your own show or for the reasons above. Before resorting to adding more tracks we urge you to look through the substantial library of music already loaded and always replace a track from the same category of music.
Unless you have been given a specific category to load your music to, all presenters loading music must be loaded to the Shows Music Category.
Never add interviews, adverts, promos or voice tracks to a music category; our automated software will select them and play them into the station. If you would like to add an interview or other content, request this via email@example.com there are specific categories for this – please dont guess! More specific guidelines about adding tracks are in a sheet at the end of this training document.
Here is Johnny Murph about adding music to the station. In this example he adds it to the 70s category because that is specific to him.
