It was a question asked a few years back on a radio forum, So why indeed is some radio software free?
I know in the case of RadioDJ radio automation software that the author wanted to help hobby level Broadcasters get their stations online.
The software has since been adapted for use by several professional stations too. Which is great when you think about it.
I’ve tried all sorts of different pieces of free radio software in my time and I’ve been impressed with some of them and not so impressed by others.
I have to admit RadioDJ comes top of my all time favourite software list its just an amazing piece of software that plays music seamlessly
I’ve also tried some other free radio software too most of which can be found Here
Its great when software works as it was designed. The fact its sometimes free is also a huge bonus.
RadioDJ is fast gaining traction as the number one radio automation solution
There will be a paid for version of RadioDJ eventually but the author has pledged to keep the free version available for those who need it.
So why is software sometimes free? Because it is, no discussion needed on the subject!
You’d be amazed how jealous people can be towards free software solutions.
