Normally you would create 3 program scheduler entries.
One program with your normal script before that hour. Than the script with the audio url.
And after that hour again the 3rd program entry with the normal script again.

Alternatively you can also just create one larger program entry using the normal script.
And then you create another program scheduler entry using the audio url script, but set this program schedule entry using the Overlay option.

This is actually explained in the Tutorial videos....
Open the program scheduler, from the Scheduler ribbon tag by clicking on the Schedulers button...
E.g. to create a new program scheduler entry, just right-click into the program scheduler entry at the appropriate location (time and date) and select 'New Program' or 'New Recurring Program' (depending on what you want). When the scheduler date and time area is empty, that is a simple, else if already occupied, right-click exactly to the right of the existing program:

When the Program Editor comes up, just fill out all details. Click on the '?' at the very top right to get help for each field.

Please show a screenshot how you defined exactly your various program scheduler entries, as well as the script using the url.
Eg. When you define the script-line ‚LoadTrack‘ please hold down the CTRL-key while clicking on the 3 dots button
This will open the URL selector and make Shute to specify a time limit for the url stream play time.

Click on the ‚?‘ icon at the top right of each dialog to get help for each option.
And what of the 2 option Ie plained dis you choose?

If you read my previous post you could find the answer yourself.
But I still do not know what option you have chosen - 3 programs in total or just two, but one as an Overlay?
I assume it is the 2nd option…

In that case, you must (as said) limit the play time of the URL given. You specify that when you click on the 3 dots next to the URL (when you are active in the) text field… seems you never tried that?

A URL is always continuous stream with no end. By default and if you have specified an overlay program, the suspended program only resumes, when the overplayed script played thru on one loop. But when one element never ends, it will not resume.
Therefor you must specify the duration of that URL stream, so that it can end after eg. 60 minutes or even below…
When you hold the CTRL-key while clicking on the 3 dots a new URL dialog comes up, where you can specify the max. duration:
