In your Radio.co Dashboard:
- If you want to publish a DJ mix you have uploaded to Radio.co, head to Media > Tracks and locate it in the list. Remember the file must be over 20 minutes in length.
- If you want to publish a live recording made within Radio.co, head to Media > Recordings. The same 20 minute minimum length applies.
