There is NO such feature in RDJ.

If you need to repeat a play list of songs create a playlist and have that load via an event... Although why you would want the same songs over and over again is beyond me.

Just leave the program to automate and get creative with rotations etc etc.. (ad nauseam) it is after all a very clever automation program.

I don't know what you want to repeat but it is possible to run RadioDJ 24/7 with unique playlists. Just build a rotation using the categories. When the rotation is saved ( at least 15 music tracks or 21 tracks including jingles and promo's ), tell in an event what RadioDJ should do at a givin time and RadioDJ starts building a playlist according to what your rotation is. Hit start and it stops when you press the stop button. ( Or in case of Windows 10, when Windows crashes  :hihi: )

No problem, some can explain this too ;-) A jingle is some kind station ID. "You are listening to *station*" those kind of things. A promo on the other hand is promotion for a program on your station. Something like "Each Friday at 5, news from 5 to high five". Just some kind of promotion. Jingles can be 5 seconds or just 2 seconds and promo's could be 30 seconds up to 45 seconds. You can use these to "break" the continues music.

Those jingles and promo you have to make yourself or you can order them but ordering is money ;-) A little tip, if you know somebody who want to say some words for your station like "Radio" and "listen now" those loose words, than you can edit them in a multitrack program with some little sounds underneath. If you go to https://purejingles.com/ (https://purejingles.com/) you can hear some exaples how it sounds like. Don't use them for your own show, that can get you in major problems.
