Playing tracks by
Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, Chris Knight, Tim McGraw, John Denver and more.
Today, instead of pre-recording my show, I did it live for the first time in a couple of weeks. I thought that went well.
I enjoyed playing all the country music. Just a shame I made a slight mistake and had one track loaded in to the playlist twice, without noticing. Oh well.
I had a couple of requests which came in through Facebook during the week. So I played those today – that worked well.
I did the news live at 17:00 as well – writing the script whilst the music was playing, then running over to the printer next to the Radio Production classroom just before 5. This worked well. Though I’ve never quite got used to switching between the news and weather bed properly when doing it live.
Next week, my theme is UK Place Names. All tracks played between 16:30 and 17:30 will have the name of a place in the UK mentioned in either the title or the lyrics.
