Pirate V’s Legal

Certain people in the Internet radio community reckoned we ran a pirate radio station & some people also reckon that I have done work for pirate stations in the past.

Nope completely wrong on all counts!

The stations I’ve worked for in the past were all legit and above board. I once got asked to work for a pirate station in Scunthorpe (WLNG) in the late 1980s but also declined that offer.

When it comes to streaming a station I’ve only ever streamed music for me to listen to via a private internal shoutcast server (Which we no longer need because we’ve bought a Chromecast)

What really gets my back up on this subject is the fact that there are so many stations listed on various radio guide websites who have never owned a licence to stream.

Some of those stations have been going over 14 years. I won’t name names but you just know a pirate station on the Internet when you come across one.

No one it seems pulls them up about not having a licence for their music.

I am still streaming my music via a private server Chromecast and I intend to carry on doing so.

Now piss off and find someone else to harass!

RadioDJ Reliable and Stable

By now most of you know RadioDJ is my no1 choice when it comes to music automation software.

I can leave RadioDJ to do what it does best and that is automate my music collection without me having to worry.

Reliability and stability is what you would expect from a piece of radio automation software and with RadioDJ you get that in spades.

It’s just a shame we couldn’t say the same for “other” paid for radio automation software. We were lucky if other software held up for more than a few hours never mind a few days.

RadioDJ will work for days and weeks without anyone needing to keep an eye on it. (One user reported 7.5 months uptime)

I’m nowhere near as stressed these days because I know just how reliable and stable RadioDJ can be. I don’t find myself swearing at software now.
