Editorial Issues/Feedback 

  • A handful of files were uploaded in the wrong format meaning they were unplayable during the show 
  • The main computer in the radio studio had a problem with it and wouldn’t start up properly. The computer needed restarting for it to work, which meant the show went live later than scheduled. 
  • One of the facts that I had mentioned during the broadcast was factually incorrect and should have been verified beforehand.
