Formatting Christmas with Music 1

Some stations go all in with loads of Holiday music during the season. Most of us add it lightly, sprinkling the songs of the season into the regular music mix. Either way, it can be done quite efficiently by cloning and editing format clocks, substituting the Christmas categories where desired. The Christmas clocks then need to be put into one or more Dayformats and it’s best to clone and edit those, as well.  This three minute video shows the basics.

Christmas Title Separation

Playing multiple versions of the same Christmas standards present unique title separation problems. You can make it easier with a few simple things.  First, make sure the same-title songs are well separated in the Rank order in the category.  Second, using Packets allows you many versions of a song and never have a title separation  problem because the “song” gets scheduled, but with a different artist each time.
