Sounds easy, but you need to do it there, as nobody on global mailing
list may know which songs people like to listen in that gym in
India. What you need to do is first to have files which are to be
played, even if they arrive from YouTube. If you would have that list
of files, I can help you do the rest:

- download all files from playlist management interface automatically
- measure automatically their time lengths
- sort files per day into playing lists
- provide management interface to it, so that maintenance goes easy
- adding new files is then easy, and management interface helps with sorting

Once sorted, it can play. Play program would first look what is the
current date, current time, and then it would choose the song that
corresponds to current date and time and play from there.
