I believe internet radio and streaming events can be improved significantly with today’s technologies. That’s why I’m creating streampusher.
Creating an online radio station is a lot of work. At the minimum you need to:
- start and manage your streaming server
- recruit DJs and presenters
- scheduling shows
- promoting shows
- manage archives and recordings
In addition, new DJs need to be instructed how to stream, which usually involves downloading desktop software, giving them credentials to access the server via their streaming software, setting up their DJ software to output audio to the streaming software, and more.
Streampusher intends to make this easy and will help you every step of the way.
You can add new DJs to your station simply by entering their email address. The new DJ will receive and email automatically with instructions on how to login and stream to the server.
You can schedule shows and programming with the calendar function. You can select a DJ to host the event as well as a backup playlist that will play in the event that the DJ is unable to do the show for any reason, ensuring there is never any dead air.
In the future, streampusher will archive recordings automatically and export them to podcasts or your favorite hosting service like mixcloud or soundcloud.
What about when there is no live DJ, or maybe you just want to play a pre-arranged playlist of songs on your station 24/7? Use our snappy playlist editor to get your playlists on the air nearly instantly. Just drag and drop mp3s or other audio files from your desktop. You can create unlimited playlists and schedule them to play at the time of your choosing.
I’m really excited about what we can do with managing radio stations via a powerful web interface, there is so much we can automate and make easier.
If you have any feedback I would love to hear it. Feel free to leave a comment below or send an email.
