Free Radio Broadcast Automation Software

I like some of the searches I see coming from Google analytics. One used over the past few days was “free radio broadcast automation software”

I’m guessing they were probably looking for an alternative to another well known radio automation program.

If you’re in the market for some FREE radio broadcasting software.

Then you need RadioDJ FREE radio automation software.

RadioDJ is a pretty fantastic piece of kit we’ve used it for around 5 years now.

Considering it’s free it comes packed with some pretty awesome features.

1) It’s 100% FREE with NO keys, No catches, No online activations or restrictions on use.
2) RadioDJ is so reliable and it will run for weeks/months without a need of a reboot.
3) Great support via the Community Forums.
4) Great sound via the built in sound processing.
5) It’s really simple to create or manage playlists, rotations and events.
6) Music library support. You can create and add as many categories/subcategories you need.

There are more great reasons like the “Online request system” or the “Plugins for streaming” but we will let you download and install RadioDJ and play with it and see for yourself.

SAM Broadcaster Terrestrial Licence.

Have you ever read through the EULA (End user licence agreement) when it comes to SAM Broadcaster?

SAMbroadcaster20166

(Most people haven’t)

We can’t help but notice how Spacial make it difficult to use their software. You’d be pretty amazed at the restrictions Spacial Audio do actually place on the their software.

Especially with a normal copy of SAM Broadcaster Pro ($299).

(Section 2e) The software may not be used to transport and stream any terrestrial radio broadcasts and/or communication.

 
Q: If SAM Broadcaster Pro cannot be used for terrestrial purposes… Why does it have built in FM broadcasting capabilities via a PCI card?

If you want to use SAM Broadcaster to broadcast over terrestrial AM/FM signals.

Spacial Audio will ask you to hand over $699 for the Studio edition of the program.

That is a lot of money for a radio station owner to part with & there is no way on earth that SAM Broadcaster is worth that much money.

Mind terrestrial stations tend to use software that costs thousands not some overpriced hobby software.

Even as a normal user It would appear you can’t do much with a copy SAM Broadcaster Pro.

God forbid you should want to run more than 2 online stations at a time. Spacial Audio don’t like you doing that either!

“You are only licensed to stream one station per SAM Broadcaster Pro licence”

 
There is a simple FREE solution to this. Use RadioDJ radio automation software instead.

RadioDJ has fewer restrictions and is FREE for use by any radio station or DJ anywhere in the world.

“You can run RadioDJ where you want, when you want & run as many instances of the program that you require. Without having to stump up any $$$ whatsoever!”

 
Think about it!

Why bother shelling out $$$ for software that isn’t always guaranteed to work and could cause you all sorts of legal nightmares if you use it for something other than what it states in the EULA (End User Licence agreement)?

Just more reasons why Spacial Audio software sucks IMHO!

Shoutcast Ad supported Streams

Just read an article on Broadcasting World.

Radionomy have now launched Shoutcast Ad supported streams.

Which means an advert will play over your stream 2 times per hour.

This is if you are signed up totheir SHOUTcast Streaming Service.

I’m not sure if this is a good idea or not?

I just wonder how many listeners this is going to put off listening to a stream though Shoutcast?

I doubt this will do much for a lot of users other than annoy the people wanting to listen to music.

I feel that if people wanted adverts on a radio station then they would be listening to a station on the FM Dial or DAB not online!

One huge question remains:

Now Radionomy are sticking adverts into peoples streams does that mean Radionomy are paying for the royalties for that stations stream as well?

If the answer to that is yes then it would be a good idea.

If not then it’s a NO from me.

The Men In Suits Strike Again!

The “Men in suits” have struck again, by men in suits I mean the guys who run radio stations at boardroom level. The main radio company that has this problem seems to be Global who own brands such as Heart, XFM, Smooth and Gold.

You may ask well what have they done wrong?

What they have done wrong is make a complete and utter mess of the radio.

My case in point being Gold. It was perfectly good station to listen to but as from 24th March 2014 I doubt it will be worth listening to.

Several DJ’s have been laid off and it’s just going to be automated most of the time.

That’s not what people want from radio. Most people want to hear a friendly presenter on air not repetitive automated music.

I just wish those “Men In Suits” would stop messing around with the stations they own and just leave the production up those who know best i.e: The on air DJ’s.

I wonder just how much this will impact on their RAJAR figures after the changes as I would imagine a lot of listeners are going to turn elsewhere for music radio.
