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 radio programs out there from music automation software to encoding/streaming software.
One of the best pieces of software for starting your own online webradio station is RadioDJ
RadioDJ is a FREE radio solution without all the RED TAPE that paid for software tends to come with.
You can use Radio DJ: When you want, How you want and Where you want. You can run multiple copies too.
Unlike other radio automation software RadioDJ doesn’t constantly dial home to check if its still activated or licensed.
That’s the music automation taken care of, In order to stream you will need an encoding program that will stream to either a Shoutcast or Icecast server.
You can find Shoutcast and Icecast servers via a Google search
Make sure you choose your genre of station wisely, Make yourself stand out from the crowd, Be unique and above all enjoy yourself.
General rule of thumb is to rip .mp3 files at 320kbps or WAV/FLAC files to make your audio sound decent.
Once you learn how to stream its a really great hobby to have. Make sure you do some research on the Internet for tricks and tips
Its not that difficult to start your own radio station online, its a lot easier than it used to be.
If you get really stuck ask for help on a forum or social media.
