The Saturday Meeting

Today in the Saturday meeting David and Nasrene brought an idea to the for the creation of the Rattler Publishing website. The idea is not to create and entire site, but do an add on to the Melanated Community Radio site and to purchase the dot com's of both sites as an intellectual property  investment; which, means Rattler Publishing will then own both the dot net's and the dot com's and possibly other dot extensions. They also purposed a plan concerning the support system. Both David and Nasrene purposed that the support system be used mainly for now station managers and host during start up. The start up package will be segmented on the system and once cleared they will be gives access to the system to download the package. The portal will also be used for a reference for trouble shooting the software. Stephen and Ursula suggested it also be a place where new software being tested in bata can be implemented, there information could be gathered that would help determine regular use or not.
When asked about the Studio William reported although the studio is now operational he suggest until Station Manager and Host can use the server portal they continue to use the drop box.
Stephen added either way the problem of submitting program in a timely manner will still exist. Which will cause a dead space problem for MCR Admin also wild card programming has to be eliminated. It can't be stressed enough you can not conduct an interview and add it to the active run time without advertising it first in the active que, so how do we solve that?
David replied they can always catch the bumper of a crosstown bus. We can not allow others to dictate policy to us and bend to do their bidding, it's never going to happen. Station Manager that do not have a written policy on my desk by 1/5/18 will find themselves DJ's end of this shit. and Dj's that do not follow the mandatory rules we set forth for operations will get the fuck off my block stating now.
The room was silent for a moment, and although David is brutal in his tactics we all knew he is right if we allow Station Manager's and Program host to not follow the basic requirements of broadcast and protecting of their station then there is no point. Nasrene said then the dead line is 1/5/18.
The meeting ended.

Upcoming changes to MCR Broadcast Policy

Today in the Saturday I approved the new MCR Broadcasting Policy which will contain steps that will make the process easier for both Station Managers and Program host. We will be sending emails in the next few days regarding this policy change.
Th policy is designed to decrease missed programs and neglected commitments by program host and station managers, because nothing moves forward without change.

The most exciting time to be a part of Rattler Publishing

Where do I began.
First congratulations to Stefanie Turner for joining the MCR Team as Chairperson of Quality Control, the opening of the MCR studio and the announcement of an upcoming station newsletter and monthly magazine is overwhelming to say the least. But this is Rattler Publishing's Lock Step Philosophy of forward motion. I am excited beyond words, but mostly amazed at the sheer energy in the drive of Rattler Publishing and Gemini to redefine and set a higher standard for excellence. We have a lot of work in front of us. To meet or even exceed the standards already existing within the philosophies of Rattler Publishing and Gemini seems nearly and impossible idea, but remember it a journey and I am pleased to walk along side people who also believes in only bringing out the very best within themselves.
I'm truly overwhelmed and look forward to next year.

update on changes

This morning David and Nasrene agreed to the redesigning of the Rattler Publishing website. Although the site is still up we don't recommend sending material to the email address' it is unknown of the time they will be disabled for the transfer. They estimate the transfer will take place on the 12th of this month but wouldn't say for certain. So at best guess look for the new site before the beginning of the winter solstice. (Christmas for those that celebrate it).
In the mean time if you interested in The Cultural Music Program send all material to admin@melanatedcommunityradio.net until the emailing system of Rattler Publishing is restored.
