All New Automation

automation-lionelINTRODUCING!!! AUTOMATION!!!

We are now getting involved in more musical broadcasts, we are now introducing random streams on RCD Radio, one of new ones is called, Automation!

Automation will be a process where we play non stop randomised music from our music library at random times and random days, there is no schedule for this.

The reason this is going to be random is because its all down to availability of the studio and depending on when we can do automation, during automation we plan just to play non stop music, with ads, jingles and voice overs during intervals of songs, we may play anything from jazz, rock, pop, funk, R&B, metal and many more.

The point of automation, is that we can set it so it plays tunes from the library at random, there is no DJ on duty when we are in automation! but there may be someone sitting at the desk, however they may not be in charge of the music, its all happening by itself, therefore, we will not be taking requests.

studio-pic37Although we will be playing all sorts of music, at times, we may only play music from one artist, one genre, or just a selection of genres at times, but we will let you know what sort of music we will be playing.

How? we will always update our Twitter and Facebook when we go Live with automation, we will tweet that we are playing absolutely anything and you can come and check us out on the Live page!

The reason we are starting this little automation process on RCD Radio, is because we want to start broadcasting more, so we can get noticed more and get more people to come and visit us, to see what we are about and to see what sort of shows we have coming up on our schedule.

Visit our new page on automation, which will answer many more questions about what it is and how it works, visit the automation page at http://automation.rcdradio.com

Brand New Hard Drive – Its Called SUPERDRIVE

blog-hard-drive-10-10-2013-1Just over a week ago, we wrote a blog post about how we have suffered yet again a hard drive failure and we were working on getting its replacement in.

Read that blog post here

The replacement drive is here and is now operational! Restoring the drive was no easy task and it took a fair few hours to get its backups, such as music, jingles and voice overs, but everything has now been restored and we are ready for broadcasting Now That’s What I Call Music Volume 10 on the 16th October

The New Drive

The new drive is a Buffalo DriveStation Combo 2TB eSATA/USB-2.0/Firewire External Hard Drive, after we originally thought our streaming machine took FireWire, we were very wrong, after looking at the port and the writing above it, we noticed that the port was actually a eSATA port which was very exciting to hear.

blog-hard-drive-10-10-2013-2eSATA allows you to transfer files to the hard drive at super hyper speeds, which for us is perfect as we do music streaming from the device, according to the manual, it allows transfers up to 15000MBPS (Mega Bits Per Second) which is allot faster than Firewire and USB.

The drive is a solid state hard drive with 2TB of space, its plenty for our music library, the new drive has also been networked so we can access the drive to update the library from any machine on the network and without there being any disruption from disconnecting the drive or connecting any USB sticks or Hard Drives for music transfers.

Overall, we are very pleased with this drive and its going to be in good use for the next few years. (Hopefully)

For more information on the drive including its full spec and where to buy, go to http://rcdr.me/1bePQzX

Important Facebook Only Announcement Concerning Clicking out Links via Facebook!

DJ Lozo Series 1 Pic with RCD Radio T-ShirtSo a couple of months ago, we reported on the Facebook page that there was a slight concern we needed to raise in terms of clicking out links on Facebook, I did not need to open a blog post, but I thought I would post that message on our blog, so everyone and new users of RCD Radio, are aware of what is going on with our Facebook links, this has still not been fully fixed, below I have quoted the message of what we put on the Facebook page with the link to it.

Posted 23rd August 2013
