How does a radio station job work? And can one run without people? Can the music run by itself?

Question by AJ: How does a radio station job work? And can one run without people? Can the music run by itself?
I am writing a movie about the apocalypse. In it, the characters listen to the radio, and it zooms in, and shows the radio station with everybody dead, but music still running. Is there a way to “shuffle” music, or make it run for about a week or so without humans being around? And can you describe more clearly what the job is and how you would do it.

Best answer:

Answer by Common Sense
Do you have Itunes? Put a crapload of music and hit shuffle.

    It depends on the job. Yes, it can run without people, and the music can run by itself. Many radio stations have a syndicated feed, and no one has to be there to keep things on the air. If something goes wrong, there is always an engineer on call who can come and check the problem.

    Best of luck with your script!
