Internet Radio

Internet radio is the way to go if you want to offer audio on schedule as opposed to on-demand. Internet radio stations funcion with programs at set times, much as AM and FM radio stations do, except that you synthonize them through internet instead of an antenna.

They can be accessed through your browser, tablet, telephone and other hardware and software. Anyone can learn to do it, our system is simple and completely accessible to the blind and visually impaired since I am totally blind and developed it for my own use.

Intellectual property warning

We do not collect or report royalties on music or any other type of copyrighted content and you as the user, are responsible for collecting and reporting such royalties if they are due. We do not limit listeners geographically, therefore royalties get complicated when your audience is worldwide.

Fortunately, there is much audio content in the public domain. Music, with the advent of digitalization, has little appeal on internet radio, it is more suitable to AM and FM stations for listening in automobiles. Most amateur internet radio broadcasters attain success with niche talk shows that, depending on quality, could develop considerable audiences.

Broadcasting methods

There is much talk about quality and efficiency when it comes to amateur broadcasting. Basically, the preferred method is to pre-record programs, upload them to the server and create playlists so they will air at a set time. Each producer/presenter can record and edit his or her own program and upload it, thus making the amount of work by the manager/director sustainable. Sometimes, due to timeliness, it is desirable to transmit live from your home/office computer to the server; it is certainly feasible to do so, but should be avoided if possible, for it adds an extra connection, delay and possibility of failure to the equation.

Auto DJ

The method of uploading pre-recorded programs to the server, for it to schedule it and transmit it at the appropriate time and date, is called AUTO DJ. It requires disk space in the server to store those programs awaiting emission.
