Hello all.. First off, let me say that I am a new to the world of internet radio broadcasting, but am no stranger to audio production, media, and technology. I'm an experienced audio engineer, media designer, post-production supervisor, and digital media specialist. That said, for the past several months, I have been developing a concept and plan for a mixed content radio show, in which I plan to take to the world of terrestrial radio in the bear future. A local radio station is interested in giving my show a try, if I can go for a month or so independently online, to show that we can continue to produce consistent quality in programming. So...long story short, here is my dillema.. I have experience with a lot of pro audio applications, but have never been involved with any internet radio broadcasts in the past. For the most part, I am familiar with the process, but I have yet to find a method to accomplish everything I plan to include with my show. Here is what I am looking for: -The ability to offer both Live Talk and play music from my library. -Cue live sound effects during talk segments. -Play audio clips during talk portion (news bytes, pre-recorded interviews, etc) -Allow musical requests from listeners -Receive and broadcast live telephone calls from listeners on air. -Mix and broadcast multiple live microphones from my studio (for interviewing guests, live musical performances, co-hosts, etc) -Ability to pre-record shows and broadcast them at scheduled times **Id prefer a standalone computer application that would allow me to do all of this (For Mac OSX 10.6), which I would hope, could then send my final output to whichever server I choose, and broadcast. -Now...when it comes to servers, Im hoping someone could also make a good suggestion that would fit what Im looking to do. Free servers are great, but I dont mind paying a little bit if its worth it. -Also...Im not as worried about music licensing, because the majority of the music our station will be playing has been sent to us by independent artists looking for airplay. So.....Im sorry for all of my "newbie" questions...but Im hoping some of you experienced veterans can throw me a life line and send me in the right direction. We have a great show planned, and I would love to find the right software and the right servers/sites to broadcast it! Many thanks for all your help! Cheers!
