I looked at the Spacial Audio page on Facebook and couldn’t help but notice an angry user venting about various issues with SAM Broadcaster.

“I have SAM Broadcaster Pro on two laptops neither will work because of constant crashing issues, I can not DJ because your software keeps letting me down plus I have had to shut down my radio station because of your software and its problems.

I don’t need any more of your quick (BUG) fixes, I really thought you had a quality product? Oh well lots of wasted money and time and opportunity”

We can sympathise with the user venting his frustrations on Facebook, We used SAM Broadcaster for over 8 years and had nothing but headaches with constant crashing/buffering & freezing issues.

“This user shouldn’t have to stop running his radio station, He just needs to use more reliable radio automation software”

He wouldn’t have any of these crashing/stability issues if he switched to RadioDJ to stream his station.


When we first used RadioDJ we used it to run 2 streams, 1 for another radio station and one for our own listening pleasure, it never once let us down.

We ran standalone encoders alongside RadioDJ and it worked for weeks without needing a restart.

We’ve now used RadioDJ since 2011 and it has NEVER let us down.

How To Install RadioDJ

We just use RadioDJ to automate our music around the flat these days.

We can leave RadioDJ to automate without needing to constantly restart, repair or reinstall the program.

It’s also worth noting that RadioDJ even works without issue after we take the PC out of Hibernate it just carries on playing music without crashing.

(Your results may vary)

“Nothing ever changes when it comes to SAM Broadcaster, Year after year & time after time, Spacial release badly coded software that just isn’t fit for use in a radio studio production environment”

STOP! buying software from Spacial Audio they simply have not got a clue what they’re doing when it comes to coding radio automation software.
