Congratulations – youre about to become a Mushroom Club Resident

Before you take 30 minutes or so to get set up, we think its fair to explain how this works and what is expected of you.
The radio station costs a lot of money per year in Music licenses and development costs, server fees and other expenses. We don’t want money from you.
We want you to use the design flexibility we have created in your radio page to customise your show, to have visual impact, just the way you would in a real nightclub – so that your audience arrive in the Mushroom Club and go WOW!!! This place is amazing…
We understand a lot of people are used to the facebook approach to events - your customised radio page has the same feature – we call it the event journal – we also have a chatroom – video player - customised slideshow ( where all photos added in the event journal are shown) - listener maps for radio and viewer maps for live video – Dj timetable - message for your guests from you - customised page background – including gif files – changing text font and colour …. There is so much you can do on 1 page… to make it your page - - for your show….
There is a lot to do but the design makes many task simple ( like create 1 event and it will create your whole years worth at the same time – so that you can keep your page updated and looking great for your audience, on desktops mobiles and the app
Your feedback is welcomed – this is your club – you have a say in how its built

Most important thing from now is to get ALL the basic information set up and up to date. The majority of settings are in here, and once this is done the remaining steps do not take that long at all.

Customise Page Layout -
This is how your show is presented on the site, so is worth some extra time and attention to get it right!

• Click Upload New Image Direct to select picture file and wait a few moments while the page updates.
• Choose your desired text colour and font, and you have the option to apply this selection to all colour and font options listed further down the page.
You may need to have a play to get a Text colour scheme that compliments the background image/artwork. Text will overlay the background image, so you may have to try a few options using the 'Save and Preview' option.
• Update your shows message (tag line - up to 20 words) by typing in the box to the right of the words 'Show Message'.

• Once in, go down to 'Show Management' (like you did in Stage 2) and you will see your next 4 shows have already been automatically created. The system will create the 'Event Pages' for your shows until the end of the year from your original selections.
• Scroll down, and you'll see the timetable for each show, and you can add your DJ's by clicking on the relevant 'cell' and typing in the DJ's name. By now all of your DJ's should be set up, and at least have Proxy Pages on our server to select.
• Populate your timetable accordingly.
• If your DJ is not listed, you can add a new DJ by clicking the 'Add New DJ' button. This creates a Proxy Page for the DJ.
• [For more info on Proxy Pages see 3.6 ]
• If a DJ is playing across more than 1 hour slot you just put their name into the first slot (start time) and drag down tp the last slot and the system fills in the remaining slots accordingly.
• If you would like to view later shows you can select these using the 'Select Events' dropdown menu above your event flyers. On the demonstration video, we have a monthly show scheduled on the 20th of each month. This will be custom to your show and scheduling.
• It's recommended you stay as up to date as possible (at least 3 months in advance), even if it's just the residents that are added now, and guests updated into it later.
5.2 - Timetable with 15 minute time slots (inc. B2B sets)
• If you need for flexibility than the standard 1 hour time slots, you can easily expand this table to show 15 minute increments.
• From the Show Management section, if you click on the small, downfacing arrow to the right of the timetable (next to 09:00) this expands the timetable from 1 hour slots to 15 minute slots. Now you can amend accordingly to tailor you show as you wish.
• If you watch the video you'll see that if you drag a DJ's name on to a slot already populated, it add BOTH of those DJ's to the desired slot. This can we useful for b2b performances, or crossover sections between DJ's. This means both artists will show the set against their profile negating the need of having a having a separate 'x b2b y' page.

• This uses the standard Event Management page which you can access by clicking on the flyer image of the relevant show in the 'Show Management' section.
• Once open, you can view event details, and to make changes click on the 'Edit Event' button. This opens the event page in a new window.
• Once open, you can manually adjust the DJ set times and add additional information for each set.
• To change the times, scroll down to the timetable and click on the pre-populated 'Start Time' and 'End Time' boxes and edit the times by adjusting the pop-up 'clock'.
• You can also amend various show details in this page, including 'Music Genre', your 'Event Description' and the description of your music. You can also add a 'Club' name and 'Radio Station' name here, and add more of your details and/or amend any show information that is listed.
