One of the most frequently asked questions is whether to repeat the best content or create new material for each break. The follow up question is, if so, how often? The answer is Yes, and Often. Recycling is a near necessity to assure the audience gets the best material most frequently. It just makes sense. Here’s a brief introduction to recycling content for a radio show.
