You Have A Choice? RadioDJ Or Sam Broadcaster

When it comes to Internet radio automation software you have a choice…

“Do you pay out hundreds of $$$ for a program or do you download a program for free?”

Personally we’d rather use something for FREE means there’s more money to spend on other stuff & we know from using the Forums over the years that broadcasters don’t always have $$$ to spend on software.

RadioDJ FREE radio automation

Nearly everytime we test the paid for automation solutions we come to the conclusion that they don’t perform that well when up against RadioDJ.

RadioDJ & Altacast Are Separate Programs

There appears to be some confusion about Altacast encoding software it seems people think it’s connected to the developer of RadioDJ.

Altacast was coded by a completely different person by the Nicknames of Dusty Drifter and SnowHow and it appears they’ve disappeared off the forums and the Internet.

The Altacast website hasn’t been updated since March 2016.

The Program Is Provided “As Is” (RadioDJ)

I feel I need to clarify a few things to those people who keep demanding that I help them with RadioDJ setup issues.

I swear some people expect far too much from a free piece of software… It might help if they read the RadioDJ licence agreement

When something goes wrong with RadioDJ we don’t have to give technical help or advice… We do 99.8% of the time because we care enough about the software.

Stage Fright? Oh Yes Lots Of Times!

I feel I need to clarify a few things to certain sections of the Internet Radio crowd who think I’m mentally unbalanced.

“No No No! I just happen to suffer from depression and anxiety”

It would appear stigma against people with mental health problems is rife in the world of Internet radio.

Pathetic isn’t it?

I’ve suffered with depression and anxiety for a long time now. Which all stems from the loss of my Mother when I was 7 (1980)
