Someone recently made a search “Why is my SAM Broadcaster crashing?”

We’ve also noticed these search terms pop up on our dashboard.

“SAM Broadcaster crashing windows 7”
“SAM Broadcaster crashes after one song”
“SAM Broadcaster crashes without warning”
“SAM Broadcaster Pro keeps crashing after a few songs”
“Why is SAM broadcaster crashing?”

We often see people saying things like this about the lack of stability with SAM Broadcaster.

“I’m running SAM Broadcaster Pro on Windows 7 and it crashes after 5 minutes and won’t restart”


“I have SAM Pro on two laptops neither will work because of constant problems with your software crashing”

As to why SAM Broadcaster crashes at random intervals is anyone’s guess.

The problem with SAM Broadcaster crashing without warning has always happened. It has always been a program plagued with problems that don’t appear to get fixed.

However when it comes to radio automation software these day you have a choice.

Do you pay $$$ for SAM Broadcaster (Which is proven to be unstable) OR do you install a free & stable program such as RadioDJ?


“Before switching to RadioDJ, My copy of SAM would crash randomly and I would have to re-install. Since a switch 6 months ago, NO issues”

We highly recommend RadioDJ FREE radio automation software.

RadioDJ Free radio automation download

RadioDJ is a proper radio studio automation package.
RadioDJ runs with Microsoft .NET and an SQL server
RadioDJ works on Windows 7/8/10.
RadioDJ is stable and will run for days/weeks/months. (One user reported 234 days uptime)
RadioDJ rarely goes wrong once setup.

We’ve used RadioDJ for over 5 years now and don’t have the same crashing/freezing issues we had when using SAM Broadcaster.

Despite what some people might think/say RadioDJ really is FREE with No catches or hidden costs.

The only time we have to restart RadioDJ is when Windows updates require a computer reboot.

It really is time people stopped paying out $$$ for radio automation software that doesn’t work as advertised!
