|The radio show "National Request Charts
- 2004" was delivered to 11 Hospital Radio stations across the
UK in January 2005.
The radio show consisted of a duration of 56'47"
(customisable to specific duration requirements, e.g shorter for NewsLink,
segmented into "Parts" for adverts etc.). The production
notes consisted of...
Show Intro - 1 min, voice.
Top 15 songs played out in full
Short Segues (approx 20sec. length) (between) No.13 - No.12, No.10
- No. 9, No.5 - No.4
Long Segue - 1 min, between No.8 - No.7 (this section introduced
names of participating stations to the chart).
Chart Countdown recap - 1min15sec between No. 2 - No. 1
Show Outro - 30 sec, voice
The crib offered drop in/out points between songs No. 15 - No.14,
No.12 - No.11, No.11 - No 10, No. 9 - No.8, No.7 - No.6, No.6 - No.5,
No.4 - No.3, No.3 - No.2. With that total of 8 potential drop
in points, ads were available to have been placed in these spots as
and when necessary. The only provision for timing in this circumstance
would be to reduce the length of the preceding song before the break.
E.g. No.12 song duration 2'45". Ad break of 30 sec included,
reducing song length to 2'15".
2005's production will be presented in a simpler format, offering
three defined parts to the 1 hr programme, presenting an easy opportunity
for all to drop in adverts easily. Individual branding will also
be dropped in three times during the show for the receiving hospital
radio station. More of the production format will be released
nearer the production date, Monday 9th January 2006.
