AOL/KOL Kid Radio
A massive success, AOL’s Radio KOL draws an estimated one million listeners a week. DJ Rick Adams uses Dalet to record, program and play music and other select audio tidbits for his live show. The fast paced and interactive style of the show demands that DJ Rick be able to find what he wants and get it to air in a moment and Dalet helps him do just that. Continuing on their success in the web radio market, AOL/KOL will be launching another special themed radio show for children. The new program requires a brand new facility with Dalet at the core of the operation.
