Would this be hard to do?

    I am currently working on a website for an online radio station.


    I want the "now and next" to be updated depending on the day, pulling in DJ's at that time from the main schedule page.

    How would I go about doing this?

    Easy peasy. Have the main schedule entries in a database - the main page would then show the latest 10 entries or whatever and the now and next would show the latest and latest but one. Any server side scripting language would do that no problem, php, asp, asp.net, java server pages, etc. etc.

    If you look up some basic tutorials you should find it easy even if you have no prior programming knowledge (maybe something on pagination would have a decent bit of info.)

    Cheers mate.

    Will have a look around on Google. Never done any programming before. :)
