Staring an internet radio station?

It's been a while, but we have been busy at Affinity radio.

Keeping listeners happy is a full time occupation.

We have had a number of messages and emails asking what equipment we use and how to set up an internet radio station.

The best advice is to scour the internet, including YouTube for ideas, that's what we did way back in August 2010.

We have also included a few links that you may find useful

Here is Studio 1

Studio basics:
1 PC/Mac/Laptop
2 Streaming software (free or purchased) we started with Winamp
3 Microphone (best you can afford)
4 Mixer or Audio interface (laptop) for basic mixing of external inputs (CD player, decks, microphones etc)
5 Good internet connection
6 Obvious - Music
7 Local licences (PPL & PRS in UK)
8 Get a server provider to stream your output through
9 Register your station stream on internet radio directories
10 Get that show on the road
11 Register on iTunes, TuneIn, 
12 tell the world you exist via social media

Best of luck to you.

If you need any advice drop us an email to and we will be glad to help.
