Saw a tweet from a SAM Broadcaster user having to reinstall the program after it had gone wrong on him and wouldn’t restart after a reboot of the PC.
We know how this user feels it’s happened to us on many occasions over the years. SAM Broadcaster goes wrong and crashes for no reason even in the newer versions.
It’s frustrating when SAM Broadcaster crashes during a live show and then won’t restart after a reboot of the PC and you have to faff around reinstalling the program and database from scratch.
We’ve yet to hear of anyone having an issue with RadioDJ randomly crashing on them and not restarting after a computer reboot.
The MySQL database in RadioDJ is far more solid and robust than the SQL/Firebird databases in SAM.
Plus RadioDJ has an amazing database backup tool that backs up your SQL database at a set time each day.
In the unlikely event of the RadioDJ database going wrong due to a power outage it’s easily fixed using HeidiSQL
Saving your RadioDJ configuration settings is also easy you just backup the RadioDJ program folder to another location (USB Drive/External Drive) after you have all your settings the way you want them.
It’s rare for RadioDJ to actually crash or go wrong.
We can honestly say hand on heart that we’ve never had RadioDJ crash on us while recording a show/mix or even during a live show in the 5+ years since we discovered the program.
The smart DJ’s and radio station owners are now starting to steer away from using SAM Broadcaster.

Once you get used to what RadioDJ free radio automation software can do for you & your radio station you’ll wonder why you ever paid $$$ for SAM Broadcaster.
Despite what other software manufacturers might have you believe there are NO hidden fees/catches or problems with RadioDJ.
Make the switch today… RadioDJ isn’t your enemy It’s your FRIEND!
