RadioDJ 8 Years And Counting

We first discovered & started using RadioDJ radio automation software way back in 2010 but it was 2011 before we used it full time.

7 Years Of Bliss Using RadioDJ

Yes I’m aware this is another post about RadioDJ and how great it is BUT the fact is its far more stable and reliable than other expensive radio automation software which you can pay lots of $$$, £££ or €€€ for.

“We discovered RadioDJ via a Google search around Nov 2010 but hadn’t used to its full potential until the fateful events of New Years Eve/Morning 2010/2011, We switched to using RadioDJ on the afternoon of 1st January 2011 after SAM Broadcaster went horribly wrong on us overnight while we were asleep”

We experienced what is known as a ‘Clockwheel Failure’ where SAM would only play Station ID’s and Jingles even though the clockwheel rotation in SAM had over 5,000 tracks to choose from sothere shouldn’t have been an issue.

I’ve recently been accused of “Bad Software Practices” because of the way I promote RadioDJ over other paid for software.

“I’m confused as to what those bad software practices are exactly, I simply promote other freely available software over paid for solutions, Last time I looked there was nothing remotely wrong in doing so”

I regularly test the demo’s of paid for radio automation software and find some of them don’t perform as well as the free radio software offerings.

Playit Live Radio Automation

PlayIt Live Radio Automation.

This program had been on my radar for quite a while I hadn’t had the chance to test it.

The results weren’t great I’m afraid.

“I downloaded, installed & then I started importing tracks into it via the built in tracks manager feature. Unfortunately that’s where it all started going downhill”

Why Bother With Winamp?

I can’t help but notice that people are still using Winamp to stream their Internet radio stations.

While Winamp is a great little media player things have moved on since the release of Winamp 20 or so years ago.
