Its just a little over 4 years since AOL announced they would be closing Winamp and Shoutcast down.
A lot has happened since that announcement 4 years ago. Although NOT to Winamp…

Its really easy to start your own Internet radio station online, plus it may not have to cost you lots of $$$ to startup.
There are several free radio programs out there from music automation software to encoding/streaming software.
One of the best free pieces of software for starting your own online webradio station is RadioDJ

It seems that Spacial Audio have been having issues with their SAM Broadcaster Cloud service again.
This is just one of a long line of dropouts/outages with their SAM Broadcaster Cloud service which is hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform
@spacial SAM Cloud has been hanging a lot lately. Today starting just before noon, there was three hours of silence before I caught it. This is not acceptable! please fix.
@spacial SAM Cloud is down here in the UK apologies to all our listeners
@spacial What in the heck is going on with your servers? It’s pulling my station Live Broadcasts….not cool!

I really wish certain people on the Internet would keep their opinions about me to themselves.
I’ve recently been accused of Bad Software Practices because of the way I promote Radio DJ over other paid for software.
I regularly test the demo’s of paid for radio automation software and find some (most) of them don’t perform as well as free radio software offerings such as RadioDJ.

As the downloads of v.1.8.2 on the RadioDJ website hurtle towards 200,000 you have to admit the software must be making a difference in the world of radio automation.
Its not just the RadioDJ website where people have been downloading the software we’ve had around 20,000 downloads off our servers too.
The software was also hosted in several other websites so we may not know the actual figure of RadioDJ v1.8.2 downloads.
Yes OK we’re fully aware not all of those 220,000+ downloaders will be using the software but a great deal of users are.

Went for a look recently on the Spacial Audio/SAM Broadcaster forums to see a post where someone was letting off steam about Spacial Audio support being Pathetic
He was wanting to purchase an upgrade but wasn’t getting very far with the support department and the representative manning the support desk.
Seems the person manning the support desk suggested that he contacted Cleverbridge (Who handle Spacial Payment Systems)

Downloaded RadioBoss to test to see if anything had changed since my last foray into the software.
I installed it and dragged a folder of music into the playlist, Then went on to try and configure the program and audio settings.

Its not particularly hard to do.
We have a centralised database on the local network on the Raspberry PI4 running Raspbian with a MariaDB install and we point the 2 machines running RadioDJ to that. We haven’t tested with other flavours of Linux but we’d imagine they would do the job just as well.
