Been asked to setup a School Radio Station
I've been tasked with setting up a school radio station. I've been given some advice from a member of staff's friend who runs an internet radio station. I need to do some costing for it so want to check a few things and wondered if anyone could help.
- Would we need 1 or 2 computers, ive been told to get 2 but unsure what each would actually do.
- Licenses, ive been told about PRS and PPL licenses but been told by this contact that we could buy a license from swcast.net for $10 a month. Also once you have the licenses, do we need to download music and pay for it or what?
- This guy also reccomended software called samsbroadcaster which im told is £200. I thought we would be able to get all software for free, is this the case?
- Finally when it comes to hosting, instead of paying for this service would it be feasible to host it in school, especially as to begin with it would only be students listening.
It is worth noting we are just setting this up to start with as a basic trial so we just want to be able to queue up some songs, podcasts etc and then also broadcast live as well. To begin with the idea is to have the link embedded into a player on our VLE.
Will this be easy to setup?
