Q: Why Pay For SAM Broadcaster?
Spacial Audio ask between $299 & $699 for the pro and studio editions of SAM Broadcaster.
The snag is you cannot use a “normal” $299 copy of SAM Broadcaster Pro to run a terrestrial (AM/FM) radio station with.

RadioDJ is a free radio studio automation program for use by any DJ or radio station.
You can even run multiple Shoutcast/Icecast radio stations if you want using third party virtual audio cables (VACS).
It can also be used as a home entertainment system for music. (Which is what we currently use it for)
Yes! It’s 100% Free with no nasty hidden fees or catches despite what certain software/hosting companies try claim in their blog posts. No keys, activation or patches needed to work the full program.
Eventually there will be a paid for version of RadioDJ but the free version will still be available for those who require it
Yes RadioDJ should work on Windows 10 with very few issues. Unlike other radio automation programs that have “compatibility” issues.

We came across MariaDB after a user posted on the RadioDJ forums that they were using it with RadioDJ.
I have to admit I was surprised by how easy it was to install. It’s a lot more straight forward than the normal MySQL installer.
If you have previously had MySQL installed you will need to see this article about removing it as a service
1) Download the Maria DB MSI installer for your version of Windows Here
2) Open the file & Install and run when Windows prompts.
3) On the licence agreement screen check the accept box. Click next.

A user on the RadioDJ forums wants the demo request (PHP) script to offer a bit more flexibility for user requests.
(i.e 2 listener requests from an IP per hour like SAM Broadcaster)
Update: You are however now able to do this via the WordPress plugin for RadioDJ
While it’s nice to have the request function in RadioDJ you have to remember you’re running a radio station not a jukebox.

It’s always nice seeing other people switching from SAM Broadcaster to RadioDJ free radio automation software.
If you haven’t discovered RadioDJ yet what are you waiting for?
