We couldn’t seem to find a great deal of “free radio broadcasting software” listed on Google.


“However software for broadcasting an Internet radio station with need not cost you lots of $$$”

Here are some of the best radio software offerings on the market.

1) RadioDJ

RadioDJ is a FREE radio automation program which knocks spots off paid for solutions.

In the words of one user:

RadioDJ it can work for days/weeks/months without a restart, one user reported an uptime of over 2 years with v1.8.2.

RadioDJ runs with an SQL database also newer versions require at least .NET 4.6.1 & is supported on Windows 7/8/10

How To Install RadioDJ

2) MB Recaster


Is a free encoding program that allows you have 4 encoders (Shoutcast v1/v2 Icecast v2)

You can find a download of MB Recaster Here

3) Sound Empire Caster ($0.00) (Shoutcast v1 v2 & Icecast)

This is standalone encoder that recently came to my attention.

You can find a download of SE Caster Here

Please note: You use SE Caster at your own risk while some AV scanners think the files are safe we cannot guarantee they’ll work on your system without issues.

There are also some handy free utilities available on This page

So as you can see when we say software for broadcasting on the Internet needn’t cost you the earth. We mean it!

Happy Streaming!!

Oh and by the way… There is nothing misleading in promoting freely available software. In some case the word FREE really does mean FREE.
