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.

Joke of the Day

John from MN brought back this classic!

A store that sells new husbands has opened in Melbourne , where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs

She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.'

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!'

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

PLEASE NOTE:
To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.
The second floor has wives that love sex, have money and like beer
The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited. 

Thought of the Day

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
