Radio Evangelist

Thoughts of a Evangelist for Radio in all its forms

Want to start your own radio station? For free??

Posted by Steve on January 22, 2009

Sounds like a come-on from an email spammer, right? But – it’s true. Radio automation, streaming and ad-serving provider Spacial Audio is offering up 50 “radio stations” to radio folks who have been “down-sized” sometime during the past 6 months. They call it the “Radio Bailout.” Here’s the deal:

1. Every Tuesday between February 3rd and April 7th, five people will be randomly chosen to receive their “radio stations.” There will be fifty winners total. The Radio Bailout will end with the final drawing on Tuesday, April 7.
2. Each week’s five Bailout recipients will be given an opportunity to build their own internet radio station through the following Spacial Audio software and service:
a) One (1) SAM Broadcaster v4 – (valued at $279.00)
b) One (1) StreamAds Ad Delivery Platform – (valued at $99/month)
c) Free use of one stream from SpacialNet.com, with the ability to serve up to 500 concurrent listeners at 128 kb/s – (valued at $1,150/month)
3. Just go to Spacial Audio’s Radio Bailout web page for complete details

And – Spacial Audio will host your stream for up to 5 years!

500 concurrent listeners at 128kbs is a pretty decent sized audience with a quality stream; I wonder if they’ll support 1000 at 64kbs?

They are even pitching this to salespeople – after all, a salesperson and some talent could hook up and build their business together.

I’ve gotta hand it to these folks – this is a terrific idea that will not cost a lot to implement but will both help Spacial get a lot of attention and help 50 radio folks become entrepreneurs. And – internet radio station owners.
