WORD (short for WGRE Online Request Database)
is, simply put, an online request database. There is an enormous
database that contains information about the music WGRE has to
Listeners can go to the web site, search for songs, albums,
and artists to see if the station has the music they're looking
for. If they find what they want, they can send a request to the
DJ in the booth, who has a terminal enabling him/her to see all
incoming requests immediately.
There is also the option of adding songs to a
"Favorites" list to enable users to re-request songs
they enjoy. If users just wish to browse the music currently
on-air at the station, they can do that as well.
The site also generates a "Top 10 Most Requested
Songs" list which is updated dynamically every week to let
both the staff and listeners get an idea of what music is being
requested most often.
There are database functions that allow the directors access
to certain information to obtain a greater grasp of the
listening audience. Directors can view a list of all users
who have submitted requests, view a master request log, and view
specific information about the songs listed in the database.
