Thank you for Producing Extra Content for the Programming Department!

  • FCC Basics: Legal Issues in Radio Training
  • Spinitron Training (preferred)

File specifications:

  • File Types: WAV, MP3, or FLAC
  • Break the file into 1 hour chunks.
  • Include Legal IDs at the top of Each hour (or at least within 5 mins of). “Kay Bee Oh Oh Portland"
  • The last 5 minutes of each hour should be music only (The endings could get clipped if there are any PSAs at the top of the hour, so it best to wrap up back announcing, if any, before then)
  • Your extra content can either be an "Evergreen" Music Set or even a "Special"! (Evergreen means the file has no references to dates or events that will become outdated overtime so it can be broadcast many times in the futute. Label your file as a special if it has timely references)

Ex/ Evergreen 6_12_2020 Blues (clean) - Tom Hanks
