Technological developments, especially in the field of electronics, resulting in the availability of a large number of electronic devices, have substantially contributed to making our life much more comfortable. Many of the modern electronic devices make it convenient to access the Internet, a fact that has facilitated the appearance of online radio stations. These Internet radios have opened the doors to a whole lot of entertainment. Here’s a brief introduction to these industry, telling you how these stations operate and what benefits they carry.

Working of an online radio

So far, we have had physical radio stations, with almost every small or big city having at least one, if not more. As the name clearly indicates, an online radio works through the Internet. It is just like another website, and therefore accessible from any corner of the world that has the facility of the net. Unlike a physical radio station, … Read More

It was not long ago that the benefits of the Internet were restricted to just searching for information on various topics and ordering goods online, but lately the Internet has been exploited for listening to radio programs. It didn’t take long for the Internet radio to gain an immense popularity among people, especially those needing to work on desks for long hours, as it allowed them to relax even while doing their job. Quite like traditional radio, the Internet radio also provides us with the same type of music plus other programs,with the difference that they reach us through the net. Another impressive feature is the growth of Internet talk radio, allowing the listeners to enjoy their favorite talk shows.

Ever since its inception during 1891, radio has continued to be a favored tool of communicating, until Carl Malamud introduced online radio during 1993. The new radio has benefited people … Read More

Internet radio shows are just like traditional radio shows, transmitting either talk or music audio, only via the web instead of traditional airwaves. One of the biggest differences between internet radio shows and podcasts is this ability to transmit live audio. Broadcasting internet radio audio is called “webcasting” to differentiate it from traditional radio even further with etymology.

This technology is further separated from podcasting and is closer to traditional radio in the sense that the listener has no control over when or how they listen to the audio because it is continuously streaming, just like traditional radio. Listeners engage with online radio shows by typing or pasting the proper web address to summon the media player and you’re connected to their live show the moment you connect.

Time Commitment & Accessibility

Podcasts are downloadable audio files, a more “on demand” experience you have more control over as a listener. … Read More

I have heard all five of these myths cited by self-proclaimed radio programming “experts” — including consultants, program directors and managers.

Not only are they false; they’re harmful to a radio station’s ability to attract and maintain loyal listeners and healthy ratings.

1. “People don’t remember DJs’ names. Therefore, there’s no point in radio air talent training.”

Some programming consultant actually said that in a trade publication interview.

If your hosts don’t make enough of a connection to your audience to be memorable, then “air talent training” should be at the top of your priorities.

2. “You can’t get people to listen for more than 30 minutes, so don’t waste your time trying.”

If you believe that, then I trust you believe it’s impossible to fix a broken carburetor.

After all, I can’t fix a carburetor.

Reminds me of a radio convention panel session I was on years ago.

The Value Of Internet Radio

May 1, 2020 | internet | No Comments

With the previous advancements of the compression of computerized audio files for easier transmission made by web pirates in the 80s, technology pioneer, Carl Malmud, founded the first internet radio station in 1993. With no other competition, it was simply called “Internet Talk Radio”. It was mostly comprised of entertaining interviews with key players of the science and technology industry. Since then, the growth of internet broadcasting has snowballed into the 21st century after a few musical concerts were broadcast live and music shook loose of its traditional radio roots and became “streamable”.

When internet broadcasters once needed their own servers and platforms, 365live.com changed the game, and newer, better technologies have emerged to offer anyone the opportunity to broadcast in a community. Now, this technology can be used on devices smaller than some wrist watches, such as on iPods and on smartphones. Apps such as Spotify, Apple Music, Google … Read More
