Improved! Posting Playlists
Two meme posts in a row? I have a problem. Oh well, let’s soldier on.
Today’s update makes it easier for DJs to post playlists to KMNR.org. It is pretty awesome, so your favorite DJ should have no excuse for not telling you what songs they played during their show. Feel free to call them at 573-341-4272 and berate them (nicely) for not doing so. If you’re not a DJ you can probably stop reading now and probably just head over to the playlists section and see what’s been played recently.
If you are a DJ, you’ve probably already activated yourself as DJ on KMNR.org but if you haven’t, sign in through facebook or by registering an account and slip over to the DJ activation page (Below your name, click Control Panel, then Activate As DJ; You’ll need the secret code that is at the bottom of every rent e-mail) Once you’ve done that, the sidebar should look something like this:
Give that a little click-a-roo and you’ll end up here:
Click the ‘PERFORM MAGIC’ button and you will be whisked away to KLAP where you will see the familiar start a log form, with some of the boxes already filled in! (If you look before the click, the contents that will appear in the boxes will be right below)
Fill in the rest of the fields appropriately: your real name goes in the name box and put your show name in as close to the one on the website as you can. Then start log, and do a kick ass show. When its over, commit the log and it will auto-magically be pushed through the tubes to KMNR.org.
Read it and weep. Thanks to the lovely people that modified Facebook’s discontinued SDK.

College radio day is coming!
The aim of College Radio Day is to raise a greater, national awareness of the many college and high school radio stations that operate in North America by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so on this day. It is hoped that those people who do tune in like what they hear and become regular listeners. The organizers of College Radio Day believe that college radio is one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming, free from the constrictions of having to be commercially viable, and a place where those involved in its programming believe passionately in its mission. College radio is the only free live medium brave enough to play unsigned, local, and independent artists on a regular basis. Indeed, many famous and successful bands today, owe their initial break to being played on colllege radio. Put simply, college radio is an important part of the North American media landscape because of its unique and fearless programming.
KMNR will be celebrating College Radio Day with all day road show and request shows. More information will be coming soon so keep your eyes peeled and watch our roadshow calendar. You can find out more about College Radio Day from their website.
