Yes, I had considered it.  I just happen to be even less-capable with other scripting languages :)

How about another, simpler approach:

How can I precede every triggering of playlist(random,/path/to/) with single(/path/to/file.mp3).  the local bands love being in rotation and i like helping them out, but they're often out-of-genre, and listeners freak-out when their expectations aren't met.  I'd like to mitigate genre-shock with a generic intro like "Local talent, on the hour..."

My first question would be: have you considered using request.dynamic and a custom script of yours?

This by far the most flexible solution as it allows any kind of scheduling using any kind of scripting language/database etc..

Hope this helps,
