Music choices

One of the most difficult choices for the director.

These relate to genre, slot, and mood.

You have to spend time listening to a selection of possible choices.

Extend yourself - go beyond your favourites.

Script some music choices showing a range.

Relate these to broadcast slots.

Make some notes in relation to ‘culture markers’ and ‘popular culture’ and the listenership.
