Yes I’m aware this is another post about RadioDJ and how great it is BUT the fact is its far more stable and reliable than other expensive radio automation software which you can pay lots of $$$, £££ or €€€ for.
“We discovered RadioDJ via a Google search around Nov 2010 but hadn’t used to its full potential until the fateful events of New Years Eve/Morning 2010/2011, We switched to using RadioDJ on the afternoon of 1st January 2011 after SAM Broadcaster went horribly wrong on us overnight while we were asleep”
We experienced what is known as a ‘Clockwheel Failure’ where SAM would only play Station ID’s and Jingles even though the clockwheel rotation in SAM had over 5,000 tracks to choose from sothere shouldn’t have been an issue.
Switching to RadioDJ was the best decision I have ever made when it came to software, It was easy to use once I configured its database and options.
It made playing music fun again and its fair to say SAM Broadcaster had left me flummoxed on more than one occasion…
RadioDJ has worked everytime I’ve needed it bar a database crash in 2016 which was caused by an improper shutdown of the PC by a power cut. Even then that wasn’t the fault of RadioDJ.
It was easily remedied using HeidiSQL to do maintenance on the tables, a “quick” repair and we were on again.
I’ve had my RadioDJ database running since 2014, That was the last time I decided to reorganise my collection of songs.
“50s 60s 70s 80s/Northern Soul/Motown – Yes I have a varied and wide taste in Music even if I don’t listen to modern stuff as its quite frankly RUBBISH”
I just switch AutoDJ on and leave RadioDJ to pick the music from the rotation I’ve switched to that day and a rotation in RadioDJ is yet to fail on me like the SAM Broadcaster clockwheel did.
We ran a backup stream for the station I was doing shows for back in 2011/2012 and it never failed on me then and it doesn’t fail today.
OK so I’m not using it for broadcasting with anymore but I’d like to think I still know how the software works.
Another user of the software has had his copy of RadioDJ v 1.8.2 running for over 2 years on a closed circuit laptop running XP. Again I’d call that ultra reliable, Wouldn’t You?
The database in RadioDJ is easy to look after plus you also have a NIFTY backup tool that comes with RadioDJ.
“Using music automation software should be a stress free experience and we didn’t always get that from other software such as SAM Broadcaster”
7+ Years on things couldn’t be better.
I don’t know how many more times I should have to say this BUT:
“RadioDJ is the radio automation software every Internet radio station should be using it can give you great uptime and can work for months without anyone keeping an eye on it, Plus the audio is also more professional sounding in RadioDJ with the built in sound processing”
Pity we can’t say the same for other automation software isn’t it?
“Long may RadioDJ free radio automation continue its like a best friend who never lets me down”
Take it for a spin and try it for yourself today and you too could have a stress free streaming experience.
