I saw a tweet on Twitter recently saying this…

“How To Set Up An Internet Radio Station For Free?”

click to enlarge

They were touting SAM Broadcaster as the piece of software they claimed you could run a radio station for free with.

Hate to break the news to everyone… But you CANNOT setup an online radio station for FREE with SAM Broadcaster.

There never has been such a beast as a free copy of SAM Broadcaster.

SAM Broadcaster costs between $299 & $699 to purchase (lease) so it’s NOT FREE.

“Even after you’ve paid Spacial Audio $$$ for SAM Broadcaster you don’t actually own the program you only lease it”

Even SAM Broadcaster Cloud costs $$$ to have an active account.

However there is a better totally 100% FREE alternative to SAM Broadcaster and that’s RadioDJ FREE radio automation software.

Radio DJ free radio automation

“RadioDJ is 100% free for use by any DJ (professional or budding) or any radio station anywhere in the world”

How To Install RadioDJ

Despite what other radio automation software manufacturers may say in their blog posts

“There are no restrictions with RadioDJ, nor are there any activations or keys needed, RadioDJ is a fully fledged FREE piece of automation software that works rather well when setup, You can even run multiple Shoutcast/Icecast radio streams if you so desire”


It winds me up when people Tweet complete and utter Bullshit about software being free when it isn’t!

Top Tip: Stop Bullshitting!! I will pull you up if I see you spouting crap about software on social media.
