Traffic Jams supply original traffic-targeted themes, so you can keep your media fresh and give your traffic reports some unique energy.
Watermarks are embedded in the downloaded file to display artist, title and other track detail(s). You can right-click on your saved file to show this information by selecting 'Properties.'
While these themes are free to download, you do need to report their use on your periodical return, via whatever performance program exists in your region (i.e. APRA, MCPS, PRS, SACEM, GEMA, SIAE, IMRO, SGAE, ASCAP, BMI etc)
If you need help identifying the program in your area, please contact us:
How do I download the high resolution track?
You have to log in to open up the download shortcut on each track. It's free to register and, if you forget your password, we can reset it anytime for you. If you're in a rush and want to record the low resolution stream (128kbps) that's fine, but you must take note of file details for reporting its usage.
How many times do I need to report the useage?
If your station reports traffic during breakfast and drive, and casually over day-parts and weekends, then the track would accrue around 100 plays per week. If you're a Talk format or CHR, where the traffic stop-downs are more frequent, then you'll have considerably more plays per week (PPW).
How do I report the track usage?
Usage details are recorded on your periodical return, just like any music you use for commercials or promos.
Most traffic updates are up to four times an hour in Breakfast, four in Drive. Some stations then do an hourly update across the day, generally to increase spend on their traffic sponsor(s), so think about how many plays per day you need to include.
If you right-click on your downloaded file, all reportable information is included, like track name and artist.
What do I need to include on my report?
All you need to report is Title/Artist/Amount of Plays for the reportable period, along with the 'Track ID' on the track page. All tracks are written by R J Wade.
These tracks are for use only in a broadcast environment. If your friends are broadcast people, then that's ok. All the tracks carry a digital watermark so we can monitor correct usage.
