Whether the playlist for a radio station can consist of all the songs pertaining to a particular artist or album?

Moreover, BKW will not play more than four different songs credited to a particular artist or album in a three hour period and the actual number of songs (credited to a particular artist) played in such duration may be even less as the selection and sequence of songs is based on a random system.

Can i see the full list of songs that will be played on a particular radio station?

No, you will not be able to see the list of songs of any radio station before playing the songs.
