Saw this post on a forum on a post about RadioDJ free radio automation software.
“The biggest fail with RadioDJ to me is the reliance upon a MySQL database”
Having an MySQL database makes programming on your website (PHP) really straight forward, You can show what’s currently playing or recently played or even take listener requests.
The fact RadioDJ relies on a database for some of it’s functions is actually one of it’s PLUS points.

Recently a couple of users of RadioDJ free radio automation software asked how they should go about transferring the RadioDJ settings to a new computer.
Moving RadioDJ to a new machine with the same settings is really easy as most of the settings are stored in the database.

This search term appeared on my stats recently…
“Does RadioDJ work with MSSQL?”
I guess by now the person who made that search will realise that RadioDJ only works with MySQL
Unlike SAM Broadcaster which has 4 different database options. The database in RadioDJ has been kept simple.

Reasons why you should use RadioDJ free radio automation software:
We could go on and give you more reasons like the account control, folder sync, request system, colour editing tool and the great support via the RadioDJ Community Forums
But the best reason to use RadioDJ is also the the first point I made.
“The program is 100% FREE for use by any DJ or any radio station”
If you’re not a Radio DJ you can use it as a home music automation system.
With RadioDJ you can backup the programs rotations/events/songs with a simple database backup. You struggle to get the database/events/settings backed up in other automation software.
At the moment you have to use Stand Alone Encoding software to stream to Shoutcast/Icecast but that’s still no excuse for not trying RadioDJ.
We ran RadioDJ successfully alongside stand alone encoders back when we were streaming.
Make the switch to RadioDJ free radio automation software today you won’t regret it! Lots of people are discovering just how amazing RadioDJ is.
Don’t believe what we say? Then look at what others are saying about RadioDJ with their Testimonials
We guarantee you 100% that once RadioDJ is installed it will outperform other paid for Internet radio automation programs.
“Say goodbye to paying silly money for Internet radio automation software”

It was June 2014 when I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ MySQL database from scratch.
Plus that piece of software didn’t have an SQL backup tool so when the database went wrong you lost all your data which sucked!
Some of the credit for the stability with RadioDJ also needs to go to MariaDB we’ve found it’s a lot easier to setup than Oracle MySQL.

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.
“In the process of reinstalling SAM Broadcaster it completely refuses to load even after system reboot”
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.

Seen this topic on the SAM Broadcaster forums.
“SAM Broadcaster Unhandled Exception (not enough Storage)”
It seems a user was getting this error message as he was trying to add large amounts of music into SAM Broadcaster.

Recently read a post on a forum where someone was listing the radio software they had worked with over the years.
When it came to SAM Broadcaster Pro they had this to say.
“I don’t care what everyone else says there is so much evidence that this piece of software was never intended for radio”
We’ve had SAM Broadcaster crash on us more than once while trying to run an online radio stream.
