How to improve my station


Recommended Posts

Hi,

just wondering, how can i improve my station content and entertainment experience?

 

It is a hobby so i do have to keep a very close eye on running costs...etc

So i cannot afford to pay for the PPL & PRS licenses, and only play music under the "Creative Commons" license, or where consent is given by the creators of the music/content.

 

The actual broadcasts are done via a laptop that is running "Broadwave" and a free DJ program.

I have included a talking clock, so i give time announcements on the hour.

 

I am trying to get Bands/Musicians to send in their music for inclusion, also offering slots to DJs.... not had much luck so far on either, but it is still early days.

 

Any constructive comments/suggestions would be welcome.

Hello,

 

I did this proposal already during similar questions

Take a look at http://www.airplaydirect.com, signup as broadcaster / station and you can download anything you want from unsigned artists

Deuce Entertainment has a collab with APD and makes a weekly 2 hours radioset including music, interviews etc

 

Airplaydirect allows your application after an approval (check website, stream etc)

Visit and listen @ BW !

Hi,

thanks for the info.

I already broadcast the Deuce Radio Show and play much of my material from that site.

What i really could do with, is similar complete shows... but on different genre... Like a "Deuce Country Radio Show" or a "Deuce Rock Radio Show".

 

Maybe i should try to find a local-ish volunteer presenter to create a weekly show for me.

 

Thanks again for the advice.

Its funny you mention this.

 

I have a HUGE connection to a bunch of unsigned bands, and I also have a Wigged out DJ buddy that's Loved by every artist Not ASCAP'ed out east of Los Vegas.

 

When Digging up unsigned bands, Social media is your best friend. I wish Creative Commons would open a site for bands trying to get their media viral with all the permissions included.

:clap:This sounds very interesting, and definitely intend to find out more.

Are there any websites/locations where "Social Media" can be found?

 

I am certainly looking for more content, but would really like to find complete programs "ready for broadcast", that i can include on my station.

 

Any further advice would be very welcome.:thumbup:

Ask Eric (Country Rock Radio) if he knows anybody who makes a "Country" radioset

The only shows I know are Dutch shows, I'm also looking for a show in English. I posted that allready on BW a few months ago without a reaction.

Sorry I can't help with this but when I come across one I let you know.

Hi James,

Yes i am on "Myspace" as ismrecording1... with over 800 "Friends"

Have put many postings out on there and had very little response, tend to feel "Myspace" is not really worth bothering with.

 

However any search on google for "MMIR Internet Radio", "Mannering Media"... will find me.

 

I must be doing something wrong!!!!!!!

i use sonicbids.com ... I signed up for a promoter account and regularly get at least 5 new submissions a day for Airplay from independent artists...Also u can reach out to bands on Reverbnation.com as well..i use both and i always have new content to add to rotation..in fact im behind becuase i have so many submissions..so every monday I am always adding at least 40 new songs.. i think those 2 sites can work for you too..

 

here is a link to my sonicbid profile http://www.sonicbids.com/Opportunity/OpportunityView.aspx?opportunity_id=102789
