Details of Monaghan-based Magic 105’s new interactive services – entitled Magic ‘I’ – are now being released by the station and they hope to have it running by next week.
Online requests will be one feature whereby a user will be able to pick a song from a large database and schedule it to play at a specified point in the future. This feature will also be available via WAP phone technology.
Recorded messages for airplay similar to a service already offered by TalkSport are also planned and the station hope to make use of their moving RDS by showing scrolling request details.
It will also be possible for presenters from anywhere worldwide to make their own shows for airplay using the service.
The Magic ‘I’ will be available in off-peak hours only.
Comment: Innovative and exciting plans. Not just music!
