Prepping a show in Radiologik

macOS & Mac Apps

Hello everyone,
So I'm currently in the process of converting my 5000 or so songs that are on my Apple Music library to AAC so Radiologik can play them. I also have about 20000 tracks that aren't via Apple Music, so have plenty of music.
The sad thing is that blind users at least require iTunes for Radiologik to work properly. I know there are some iTunes duplicates that I wish there was app I could use to clean my library up a bit, but for those that use Radiologik and do internet broadcasting with it, what is the best way to prep a show?
I thought of just adding songs to the program cueue with the iTunes script and, come the week of that show, I just open Radiologik and the cue is saved.
But, perhaps there is an easier way. Wel, I know of one, using the Radiologik lists, but those aren't accessible and never will be, I guess. One can hope, however.
Radiologik unfortunately doesn't have a random button, so if you're doing a voice break and are like Hmm, not sure what to play now, SPL has a random button you could just press to play something. Not this app.
For those that use it, how do you prep? What is the best/easiest way of prepping for us without access to the way it should actually be done?

I prepair a playlist by coppying and pasting the songs from the finder in to said playlist. then just queue them up 3-5 at a time. No big deal really. I have over 1tb of music to work with, most of it not purchased through itunes but collected over 20 years or so.

good luck.

You can add songs via the finder to a playlist in iTunes? I assume that's what you make the playlist in?

Yep. Copy paste the files from the finder to a new playlist in itunes. Turn off copy to library in settings though or your itunes folder will be a mess.
