Hi everyone. I am doing a restart.

I have music files from various sources scattered around my computer and I am trying to figure out the best way (or tool) to organize them. Both for my own sanity and to facilitate uploading groups of music to the proper playlist.

Last time I did a Radionomy station, I created folders "Past Hits" "Current Hits" "Oldies" "DJs Choice" etc so that I could segment them and play certain groups like "Current Hits" in higher rotation.

I'm not sure dragging music from one location to another temporary location is the best answer to keep the library in order.

How do you organize your music (prior to upload)?

Really? Nobody has tools or processes to keep track of what you have in your library?

How you know whats current and not? No advice? :(

Hello MandarinRadio,

I have a few music categories (boxes) but don't really segment the music on my pc drive. I have a folder named Fusion 101 MP3s and then subfolders for artist-album. It would make sense to create the same folders as the boxes in the planner but I just don't do that.

There are tools, like SAM Broadcaster and Music1 that help w the formatting. Music1 (Steve Warren) wrote an excellent document called "The Principles Of Music Radio Formatting" worth downloading.

Good luck,
Luis

I categorise by decade with an additional "A-List" box for new releases. The A-List also has a higher rotation and music is taken out when it is no longer current (I check the airplay charts to do this).

Hope this helps
Cameron
