stopsets, the cut that was cued and ready to go, indicated as "up next..."

Curiously, how does the encoder "know" what songs are playing/next?  Is
there a file exported from Selector (or whatever music scheduling program
they use) to it?  How does it deal with songs dropped for timing, or
unscheduled songs being aired (I believe you said jocks had some freedom to
substitute).  How does it stay in sync with what's on the air?
