Others searches make me think I need to do a blog post about that…
I’ve been into Internet radio for a long time now. In all those years I’ve learnt a lot of things about streaming on the Internet.
It’s been a fun thing to learn about. Other times it’s been hard work because software wasn’t doing the job it was designed for.
We don’t appear to have that problem with *RadioDJ FREE radio automation software.
We began using RadioDJ v184.108.40.206 about 5 and a half years ago now and that worked like a Trojan running our stream.
The newer versions of RadioDJ are far more powerful than 220.127.116.11 was.
RadioDJ just sits quietly in the background automating my local music stream. (Gave up running an online stream ages ago)
So if you’re looking for a stable & reliable DJ program for use on Internet radio then RadioDJ is what you need.
(Click on the logo to download RadioDJ or right click and “Save Link As” to download it to your PC)
Once you get past the Installation of RadioDJ the program just runs and runs without the need for a restart.
Usually the only reason RadioDJ needs a restart is because of Windows updates.
We’ve tried nearly all the available software for Internet radio and nothing comes close to RadioDJ.
Stability? RadioDJ has that in “Spades” – Try it for yourself today, It’s 100% FREE so you have nothing to lose by trying it…
*RadioDJ free radio automation really is FREE (NOT Misleading)
Song Title Updater
This is a useful tool if you are using encoding software which doesn’t support title updating.
It’s easy enough to configure and use.
Just rinse and repeat if you have multiple servers to update the titles on.
Give the other instances of the program a different name (e.g: songtitleup2.exe)

I’ve woken up this morning and just checked Twitter & I saw this Tweet in the SAM Broadcaster feed.
Wait a minute! Just how misleading is that tweet?
Most people will read it as 88% off SAM Broadcaster. They won’t read it as 88% off a course on how to run a radio station with SAM Broadcaster.
I hate posts on social media that mislead people. Don’t fall for scams like this.
You don’t even need to pay for software to start an online radio station. You just need RadioDJ free radio automation software.
People also don’t need to pay out $$$ to learn how to do Internet radio.
Q: “SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 is it a Virus?”
A: That would depend on where you downloaded the “sambc-up.exe” file from.
SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 was the worst version of SAM Broadcaster that Spacial Audio released and is prone to crashing without warning anyway.
Without adding a crack/patched/warez malware laden version into the mix.
RadioDJ is a FREE radio automation program that doesn’t require a crack/patch/key to unlock all the programs features.

RadioDJ will work far better than any pirated copy of SAM Broadcaster.
WHY bother with a pirated version of SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 anyway? It’s a truly horrendous version of the program that really isn’t worth cracking.
We guess it’s no surprise that SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 is the most widely pirated version of SAM Broadcaster on the Internet.
I’m sat here asking myself the same question I seem to keep asking myself every once in a while.
Answer: Because I’m good like that!
I’ve helped out on the RadioDJ forums for about 4/5 years now.
Most of the time it’s been fine, But every so often you get that one person who thinks it’s OK to take the piss
If it’s not one forum it’s another where I seem to get abuse from Trolls hiding behind their keyboards.
Years ago back in 2002 when I first got the chance to broadcast on the Internet things couldn’t have been better.
It was something I used to enjoy doing but now because of the abuse my anxiety levels are stopping me from doing a hobby I used to have a lot of passion for.
I splashed out on a new mixing desk a few years ago It’s never really been used.
If things don’t improve soon then it’ll be goodbye to helping people on forums.
I’m far too long in the tooth for the MIND GAMES!
I’m really a nice person! Unless you try and take me for a mug! That’s because I’m a true Capricorn… I never forget when someone has done wrong against me.
Top Tip: Don’t bite the hand that feeds you!!
By now you are probably aware that I hate a program called SAM Broadcaster made by Spacial Audio.
Let me explain a little as to why I hate it so much:
I discovered Internet radio back in 1999/2000 time when I first started using the Internet. Although It was 2002 before I got chance to actually DJ on the Internet.
One of the stations I listened to was advertising for DJ’s so I signed up & ended up with regular weekly radio show.
I had to use SAM Broadcaster 2.7.9 (Streaming Audio Manager) to do my shows with.
Despite being talked through the setup of the program it was fiddly to setup for a computer novice like me. I’d never worked with MySQL up until that point either.
The program never worked as it should & more often than not it would crash or the encoders would buffer during a live show. The crashing & buffering issues actually lost me the DJ position on the radio station.
I put up with SAM Broadcaster and it’s little quirks for just over 8 years.
The final straw came on New Year’s Day 2011 when an error message similar to the one below popped up and SAM Broadcaster was only playing station jingles. Instead of playing music. It’s what’s known as a “Clockwheel” failure.
It wouldn’t play any songs yet the clockwheel rotation had more than enough songs/artists to choose from.
We had title separation set at 1440 minutes (24 Hours) and artist separation at 240 minutes. So that couldn’t have been the cause of the issue.
SAM Broadcaster just wouldn’t do what it was designed to do and that’s to stream/play music. Enough was enough!
Around late 2010 we discovered a piece of software called RadioDJ free radio automation software.
I decided to switch to it after the clockwheel failure in SAM Broadcaster.
We instantly liked the program & found it easy to use. It held up for a lot longer than SAM Broadcaster ever could. The record was around 4 weeks & the computer only needed a reboot due to Windows updates.
We now swear by RadioDJ as a radio automation program. RadioDJ has NEVER let us down & it’s always been there and worked everytime I’ve gone to work with it.
RadioDJ has taken all of the stress out of automating a music stream. It just works as an automation program should.
We doubt anyone will want to put up with SAM Broadcaster and its issues now RadioDJ can do the same job (Only Better!) for FREE.
Before you think about paying out $$$ for SAM Broadcaster have a look at RadioDJ. You may be pleasantly surprised by how good the free stuff works.
Remember a “Fool and their money” are easily parted!
Despite claims by Spacial Audio in their blog posts RadioDJ doesn’t come with any catches or nasty hidden fees, Its 100% FREE for use by any DJ or radio station in the world.
