Commercial Manager

Postby ultimatdjz » Tue Apr 05, 2005 7:35 pm

Hey guys,

Mark, just wanted to check and see how things were going. i was curious as to the basis of the commercial manager. how is that going to work? is there any particular product it will be compared to?

i'm in need of a commercial manager. does anyone know of a free one that can be used temporarily til we get ours up and running?

Thanks a bundle.

LT,
You young fellas are spoiled! I scheduled traffic MANUALLY for a commercial station for a while in the 80's. Don't you want to dig through contracts, figure out the best place for any particular spot and then schedule it by hand? And repeat that 100's of times depending on spot load? It's FUN! ;)

Anyway, I do not know of any free commercial schedulers.

Dave B, dont forget the affidavit's... :shock: boy how time flies..

remember when it was taboo to sched 2 similar businesses in same set or worst case...back to back..

the most fun times of the year was thanksgiving/christmas (block sponsorships on christmas eve and christmas day) and
Election..$$$ (didnt have to go collect them babies)

btw did u remember to reorder the teletype paper....(sure wish i had saved some of the more memorable items that came over that noisy thing instead of using it to ignite the trash bin..)

Lt i'm not aware of any free traffic schedulers. used to have one that worked ok but it was dos based and never survived to windoze...

eghhhh, lol, wow you guys are OOLLLLDDDD, lolol,

j/k,

nah, i've been doing it manually, but we're gettin moer and more and it's tougher to schedule them. i don't really have the time, being a full time student and DOING ALL THE STATION stuff on my own... make a little more money, might be time to hire someone... YUCK! oh well, guess i just should btie the bullet and do it. *beep*.. lol,

:D "ain't nothin sadder than a couple of old timers talking about the old days,,," ( sorta quoting Hub McCann , Secondhand Lions)

LT, sounds like time to enlist a Traffic Manager Trainee,, maybe a Co-Ed Student,,, who is interested in learning..

Remember...Radio was the Original Groupie pool...( the soft warm glow of the xmiter mods and finals served a dual purpose..) :twisted:

egad, its not that simple (or safe) anymore... better scratch that suggestion,,
