an example of a Schedule Episode with all elements

Every Schedule Episode should include (in order of importance):

  1. A compelling photo or graphic (not copyrighted!)
  2. Compelling text (most important text first, less important text later)
  3. A short description under 100 characters that can double as a title
  4. The appropriate public affairs or music "Categories" or "Vocabularies" or "Topics" -- but please limit to the most relevant 4.
  5. The appropriate program name

Where do Schedule Episodes show up

  • on the front page within about 24 hours of your posting -- if it doesn't, email the Web Coordinator at web@kboo.org.
  • It automatically appears in your schedule slot on http://kboo.fm/schedule, and when your show shows up in the On Air box on every web page,
    • the link goes to the Schedule Episode if you have one (otherwise, it goes to your program page).
  • It also shows up as a link on your program page as an Coming Soon program.

But, wait! How do I create a Schedule Episode?
