Radio Programming 101
Aiming for 162 hours in the program base; there's 168 hours in a week, so this cycle would repeat 6 hours earlier every week. In other words, you could tune in every day at the same time for a month and listen for 6 hours before it repeated.
If I can replenish all 162 hours in that month, you'll never hear something played within 6 hours of its last play. And no more than 4 plays per item.
A lofty goal. About 5.75 new hours of programming every day. Ok, that's probably not going to happen. Unless I can do this for a living. (Hmm. Shouldn't that be, replacing a week of programming every week? Not taking a week to replace a month. Or a month to...dang it. We need to model this one.)
Anyway, the next step is to find 123 more hours of programming. Listen on, if you like it. Going to be a lot of the same stuff for a while, until the library attains critical mass.
