Hello Slipmat DJs!
I’ve been involved in various radio shows for several years now and one thing I’ve noticed about shows that are run without a full-blown radio scheduling software need lots of manual work to put together, especially if you work with a team.
So, as I had a couple of free evenings this weekend I put together this demo of an idea of a new tool:
The idea here is that instead of drafring your show n Google Docs or a similar tool, you would do it with this tool (being able to work in real time with multiple people and having integrated Slipmat chat open in the same window) and during the show you could use the same tool for things like “now playing”, tweeting, storing any personal show notes, and exporting the final track list etc.
There’s a lot of potential ideas here to explore, but for now I’d like to hear any comments and suggestions from our DJs who currently write their show notes in a text file or similar tool.
What kind of things would be helpful in a tool like this? What is missing now / what is slow/hard in your current workflow? Any feedback is appreciated!
