For some time the process we use has deteriorated into something very unreliable, messy and time consuming.

With the introduction of the new server you are now able to upload your show directly to the server. It will mean downloading a small software program which is very easy to use and even easier for us to manage at this end.

THE SOFTWARE 

is a small file transfer system better known as a FTP program. As explained, this enables you to upload directly from your source to our server. The program is called WinSPC and can be downloaded HERE but please scan this page before doing so.

THE DOWNLOAD

Will download and install on your desktop after following these few simple steps.

Firstly, download the software using the link above and click ‘RUN’

STEP 1. SELECT YOUR DESIRED LANGUAGE

STEP 2. ACCEPT USER AGREEMENT

STEP 3. SELECT TYPICAL INSTALLATION

STEP 4. SELECT INITIAL USER SETTINGS

OF THE TWO OPTIONS THE COMMANDER INTERFACE IS THE MORE SIMPLER.

STEP 5. CLICK INSTALL

The software will install and set an icon on your desktop.

AFTER LOGIN

STEP 1. SELECT THE FILE ON YOUR COMPUTER TO TRANSFER

STEP 2. DRAG & DROP INTO THE FOLDER ‘LATEST’ ON OUR SERVER

STEP 3. DOUBLE CLICK THE FOLDER ‘LATEST’ TO CHECK THE UPLOAD

STEP 4. LOG OFF AND GO HAVE SARDINES ON TOAST

POINTS TO REMEMBER

The ‘LATEST’ folder will be emptied each Sunday at midnight with the shows moved to the stream for deployment the following day. You are able to delete and change your files before 2000 on the Sunday. Should you realise an error that you need correcting after 2000 please let us know before doing uploading/ deleting.

We ask that you let us know when you have uploaded your file.

Please, if at all possible, keep your file names short but informative (such as TSM-wc10/01)

So there it is. If you have a problem with any of this let me know and we can arrange a call to get it it sorted. We will continue accept your shows via email (media@bexhillradio.co.uk) but do urge you to embrace this method. It makes it so much easier for us.
