We first discovered & started using RadioDJ radio automation software way back in November 2010 but it was January 1st 2011 before we started to use it full time.
We started looking for another automation solution because SAM Broadcaster was getting beyond annoying & just wouldn’t work as it was supposed to.
Sometimes it wouldn’t load items into the queue from the clockwheel rotation. Even though the clockwheel rotation had plenty of songs to choose from. Which is not what you need when you’re about to do a live radio show.
In the 12 or so years of using SAM Broadcaster, everything that could go wrong did eventually go wrong.
Its the flakiest piece of software EVER!
We were lucky if we could go more than a day without SAM Broadcaster Pro crashing or malfunctioning.
People say we make these problems up, But we don’t, what’s the point in sugar coating things? Things are really as bad as they seem with SAM Broadcaster.
SAM Broadcaster Pro really isn’t worth $299
The only time we ever have to restart RadioDJ is when Windows updates require a restart or when there’s an update for the program.
We’ve also yet to have a major database failure with RadioDJ.
With RadioDJ you’re able to backup your database at a set time everyday with the database setup tool.
Which is handy in the unlikely event of something going wrong with the database (Power Cut/PC Failure etc.) It makes moving RadioDJ between machines really easy too.
That is something you cannot do with SAM Broadcaster without having to use external tools such as MySQL workbench or a batch file (.bat) to backup your data and even then it didn’t backup the whole database, events somehow don’t restore correctly from a SAMBC backup.
Whereas the RadioDJ database backs up everything and restores properly leaving all your events/rotations/playlists intact.
If you’ve been having Issues with SAM Broadcaster then you really need to switch to RadioDJ free radio automation software.
Indeed what a difference 8 Years Makes…
RadioDJ is stable, reliable and is really rock solid! You can leave RadioDJ alone to do it’s own thing for days/weeks/months.
We’ve tested nearly every radio automation program on the market & we’ve come to the conclusion that other radio automation software can’t hold a candle to RadioDJ.
“Thank you Marius you’ve made RadioDJ automation software a world beating program & long may it continue!”
Did we mention RadioDJ was FREE!
You can use RadioDJ where you want, when you want, how you want there are zero restrictions.
