Creating Song Lists Part 1

STOP!! If you're a PCDJ Karaoki™ or an MTU Hoster ® user, don't watch Creating Song Lists Part 1. Instead, please go to the top of this page and watch the video that relates to your hosting software, as the song list set up process is very different you, and if not followed correctly will result in song requests not loading into your karaoke hosting program. Once you've watched that, come back and watch Creating Song Lists Part 2.
