Playlist entry fields

Station management can disable non-essential Spinitron playlist fields for your station. So you may not have access to all of the following.

Here's some explanation of the fields in the playlist entry form. For more details on each field and the consequences - if any - of disabling them see enable/disable fields.

New & Date added fields

Many stations compile weekly Top 30 (or whatever) charts and most of these stations only include music that's new at the station in these charts. Some stations differentiate the new material by putting it into separate stacks or bins for a period of time before filing it in the libraries.

Spinitron can generate various Top X charts automatically but charts of new music will only be accurate if the system can tell which disks are new. Spinitron uses two methods to do this: the New checkbox and the Date added field.
