Q: Have you ever wanted to create your own online Internet radio station?
Internetradio can be a really great hobby to have, Once you get used to how everything works it’s great fun
Most people think setting up an online Internet radio station will cost them lots of $$$ but it doesn’t have to with the radio playout software.
You will need a decent PC with minimum of 1GHZ processor & 1GB RAM and a decent broadband (upload) connection in order to stream successfully.
It also helps if you have a wide and varied music collection, With a minimum of 3000 tracks at least to avoid people hearing the same thing time after time.
You can find some other handy radio software downloads on this page
If you have any issues setting RadioDJ up you can find help on the Community Forums
After you’ve installed RadioDJ you will then need a Shoutcast or Icecast server to stream to.
You can find some FREE Shoutcast/Icecast radio streaming servers by searching Google for Free Streaming servers but these aren’t really recommended if you’re serious about radio.
Best advice we can give you is to pay a Shoutcast/Icecast host for a server, You can find these from around $2/$3 a month.
Make your online radio station sound unique! Stand out from the crowd and who knows eventually you could have a successful Internet radio station.
Tip: Have some patience don’t expect to learn everything within 5 minutes, Like every hobby it will take time to get used to what does what.
