Pre Recorded Shows Vs Live Shows

Something that has struck me while visiting Internet Radio forums is that most stations seem to prefer pre recorded shows rather than Live shows.

 

Whenever someone posts up a pre recorded show for broadcasting/syndication then it gets quite a few replies on most internet radio forums.

 

But I have posted that I am intending to syndicate my Live Request show on various forums and although the threads have had a lot of views there have been no replies, not even any questions.

 

Is there are reason why Internet Radio station owners seem to prefer pre recorded shows to Live ones?

I would personally take a guess is it helps them fit their own schedule better. If the stations are worth their own salt they probably have a lot of their own programming at specific schedules with little room for outside shows. With pre-recorded shows they can easily have something on-deck and ready to go for dead air situations or when otherwise there's going to be a long stretch of Auto DJ programming going on.

 

If it were me, I'd start inquiring what good open times are for most stations and roll with that and see if it goes anywhere.

I do my own shows live, but all the rest on my station are prerecorded (syndicated shows). If you are going to syndicate your shows, you need to have a demo of the show so people can listen to see if it fits in with their stations. Also they can work out what time they want to air the show as well so it fits in with the time of the day, eg lay back music at night. The stations that air my shows record my stream and play it back later to suit their times.
