I use an Excel spreadsheet, with either manual entry or cut and paste 
from my song title database.  The spreadsheet is set up to give music 
time totals for filling 18 minute segments, and includes time for 
breaks.  We have included the Desert Island Jazz playlists with our 
streaming reports.  It may be time-consuming, but it allows me to 
customize each show.
