The new Reach OnAIr set up allows for pre-records to be made. So potentially one afternoon you could put together a handful of 1 hour shows, talking necessarily needed (although intros to the artists/bands might be nice), but back-to-back independent, mixed with Reach OnAir imaging) and as a Premium member we could get them scheduled into hours where it might be appropriate. We could do early morning to mimic the late John Peel.
This is likely one for @Craigyboy but we are opening a new voice-track feature soon. This allows you to use Reach OnAIr tracks to build a show. It's a really cool feature. It might be an option that, in-time when all is tested and stable, there is a way (especially as it's independent) of getting this catalogue included into the voice-track feature, so Presenters can build their own independent. I might be speaking out of turn here, and wouldn't likely happen quickly if it is.
I guess this is closer to your thoughts, but if we see some commitments and efforts towards 2 & 3, there could be a way of getting a playlist built.
Does that get some creative juices flowing?

What made it possible is that I was granted access to many mixing desks of local clubs so have gathered together the material over a few years. I plan it to be one of the ones you should hear on Reach and no idea when I might finish off another one. Obviously now no clubs are happening but a lot of local people round here are doing it live from home so there might be some live radio opportunity there.

I have had some good feedback from a #1ToWatch feature, introducing a singer/songwriter and/or band.
The volume of artists allowed me to compile a 1 hour show, with links to the artists with a view to support these talented, hard working people in a difficult time while they were unable to do what they love, and share their music with a wider audience.
The artists all were very appreciative of the support, and of course with their links, it continues our 'Reach'
The artists have also been very responsive to being interviewed and for a chat to help promote.
This might not be something I have the time to continue, but I tried it and there seems to be an interest.
