With Christmas behind us, it’s time to move on to the New Year Celebrations! It’s another great opportunity for you to share the festivities with your listeners. Whether you’re planning a live broadcast, or are just preparing the perfect party playlist, we’re here to make sure you get off to the right start!

Schedule a countdown with the Radio Manager

First things first, you’ll need to record your countdown, you can use a software such as Audacity to do so. Then, upload your countdown to the Radio Manager. To make sure your countdown plays on time, we suggest you set it as a break.

You can add a break by clicking on the orange button in the top right hand corner of the page. In order for your breaks to be broadcast exactly on the hour,  you’ll need to set your break to the highest priority (10) and specify that the break can interrupt music in order to play on time.

You can then select your countdown in the Content tab.

If you schedule your break on the same day, don't forget to regenerate your day via the Daily Generation tab so that all of your changes are taken into account.

New Years also means new resolutions! Why not get your listeners to leave you an audio shout out to let you know what their new years resolutions are. You can even turn it into a small contest and give a prize to the best resolution!
