Spreaker is a useful service that enables absolutely anyone to broadcast free web radio to anyone who can access the website. A user is able to produce their own radio shows and either air it live or record it as a podcast for people to listen to at a later date. Those who are listening can form a playlist-like succession of radio shows called a stream.
We have never come across any service that makes it so easy to create your own radio shows, and that too for Free!
With Spreaker it is easy to set up a free web radio show as their DeeJay Console™ allows them to mix together audio input from their microphone with music and effects from the wide Spreaker library. All of the royalties for the audio in the library are paid for by Spreaker, as are the bandwidth costs. This negates the costs that many presenters of web radio are forced to face.
Another feature of this free web radio software that could appeal to many is the social aspect of it. All podcast radio shows are added to a main library that users can flick through and also “radio stations” can be formed using a variety of shows from different users. This provides listeners with a more complete and varied listening experience, gaining content from various users. If you just want to listen to some good ShoutCast radio, you can also use ShoutOff.
The fact that all of Spreaker’s podcast shows are kept in a library means that any listener searching for content will be able to access interesting content fairly easily. They won’t have to search for long before they find something worth listening to as there is a huge range of decent programming made via the system in a variety of languages.
In summary, Spreaker’s free web radio software is perfect for the person with no technical knowledge who wishes to create a radio show to distribute to friends and others online. Its huge library of free use files is ideal for those who cannot afford to pay royalties and bandwidth costs.
For the listeners, there is a huge amount of content on offer and thus it is certainly a very nice way to spend some time searching and listening.
