Time Announce
Hi, would be great to have a Time announce feature, with the ability to program it @ fixed time.

It would be great if the time announce feature supported both a standard combination of hour + minute (as in "it's four..."-"...thirty-seven") and hour&minute-specific announcements (e,g, "It's seven o'clock" or "it's one minute to six") which would overwrite the standard hour + minute composition only where present.

I used a system like that one time. The time announce would generate the files five seconds before the event. It would rotate through a general file bank "The time now..." or "It's..." followed by the hour and the minute (at :00 it would say "o'clock"). Then there's the hour-less time announcements that would say "it's twelve minutes..." or "it's quarter past..." followed by "the hour." The file banks were saved in a special folder on the computer, and when it came time to generate the file, it would check the system clock and grab the corresponding files. Maybe, if there is a function to add a time announce event to the clock with an "hour-less option"?

You could have your station voice record all times and system would handle playing right time file

This is the unique missing feature in the playit software.

I have managed to get around this by making a PHP script that puts the MP3 files together, and then this gets put into Playit as a URL. Not the tidiest way of doing it, but it works
