Radio Automation Software Demos

These are sales demos. I will admit now that they are all at least a little annoying.  But you cannot operate a 24/7 operation without automation anymore. You at least need a backup system more sophisticated than the old Sony 50-disc changer. There are a lot of products in this market space.  For small market stations it can even be worthwhile to explore open source options. The Promethus Radio project compiled a nice list here. But you might want something a bit more robust than a hacked link between an iTunes playlist and a fault switch. Brace yourself... unless you are working at KMUD, you are going to need a computer.
