Café Chill playlist: Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Florida Skyline, AWITW and more

In the foreground is a lake with calm blue waters. The shore of the lake is forested, mostly with evergreen trees. In the background are tall mountains, the ones the furthest away are snow covered. The sky is blue with a three-quarter moon showing in the daylight.

  • Hey Richard, on the 7AM playlist after the Song Artist / Title information on Track #3 it just moved on to the 6AM playlist again then saw the rest of the post.

      • Me neither! After that 17th track it just went “Whoopd! 6AM Playlist now!” all over again! You’ve fixed it now, so it probably will not be that big of a deal anymore.

      • Also, I think the shorter alt-texts are so much better and way less unfinishable than the long, unfinishable, uncleanable ones. I think you should do those ones from now on when you’re doing alt-texts.

          • Thanks!

            Also, I have a question: You say the Café Chill episodes get uploaded when the show runs, but that hasn’t been happening lately. How come that’s so?

          • Well, I can’t think of a word for it, so, I’ll probably say it means:

            They are kind of on-demand recordings, but instead of the ones that get published on the c89.5 website, I’m talking the ones that get published on the PRX (Public Radio Exchange) website every week, and even have that week’s photo on there, then you can scroll down and go to “View on PRX Exchange,” then that link has the sections of listening to the episode, then you can scroll down again and select the Human Readable Playlist and then it shows you *that* episode’s playlist. That’s what I’m talking about.

          • Ahh– so we commit to having the PRX episode uploaded by Monday (“Monday 23:59 Pacific Time”), because that is where many of the other public radio stations download the file from. We of course almost always have it ready at some point on Sunday, because we never try to put it off to the last minute, since most work stations use a work flow and expect a new episode by Monday evening.

            We add some extra metadata and do some extra quality checks on that upload because if we mess up, it would impact the 40 other stations that run it (who run it the week following the Sunday that it airs on C89.5). If we mess up on something minor on the version that runs on C89.5, it’s much easier to fix that, because it’s just one station. If we mess up on something that goes out to the other stations, and it went out to 40 stations, we’d have to reach out individually to those 40 stations and get them the correct files.

            Hope that answers the question and that I understood it correctly! Have a great week!

          • Yeah, that makes tons of sense! So, basically, it’s late because of the mistakes that sometimes happen, so you have to fix those mistakes, that then causes it to become published later than expected. I get that!

            You have a good week as well!

            – Darius
