Keep seeing posts on the Shoutcast forums from people running radio stations who state that someone else is streaming using their station name.

Shoutcast listings

“We heard 2 different streams under our station name, What is the source of the 2nd stream”

Looking at the Spacial Audio Facebook page and shaking my head in disbelief at the latest posts from frustrated users.

You Have A Choice?

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

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