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 4.9.1 crashes on Windows 10”
“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”
“SAM Broadcaster keeps freezing”

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

“We’re running SAM Broadcaster Pro on Windows 7, It often crashes and sometimes won’t restart after a computer reboot which means we have to reinstall the program from scratch”


“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.

“SAM Broadcaster locks up on me daily. Even though I have 16GB RAM on the SAM computer”

Yes you’re quite right SAM shouldn’t be locking up on a machine with 16GB of RAM again it shows how badly coded SAM Broadcaster is.

SAM-Broadcasterstopped working

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 days you have a choice”

Forget paying $$$ for SAM Broadcaster (Which is proven to be unstable) just install a free & stable program such as RadioDJ

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

RadioDJ free radio automation software

RadioDJ is a proper radio studio automation package for hobby broadcasters and professionals alike.
RadioDJ runs with Microsoft .NET and an SQL server
RadioDJ works great on Windows 7/8/10.
RadioDJ is stable and will run for days/weeks/months. (One user reported 365+ days uptime on an XP laptop)
RadioDJ rarely goes wrong once Setup

We’ve used RadioDJ since 2011 and haven’t had the same crashing/freezing issues we had when using SAM Broadcaster.

We’ve never had the program crash on us while recording stuff or even while doing live shows. It’s worked everytime we’ve wanted it too.

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

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

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