Radionomy is like Djc Media except they have a certain time on a clockwheel they want you to play a Ad Trigger file. They use Target Spot to target the ads by IP Address. Radionomy says they will pay you after you have so many ad impressions (Listeners who hear ads). Howeve many folks who have had thousands of listeners have not gotten paid. DJC Media has another approach where you join their network and yes you may have to pay for the server and StreamLicensing. You decide when to play the trigger files which uses Target Spot. You get enough ad impressions your license is FREE and still legal as they cover your Royalties. They also work with some folks who have On Air stations. They know too well the RIAA’s tricks. But with that even in mind you can still make money on your Internet stream. The Aim of my station was not to MAKE MONEY to start, but due to the RIAA I had no choice but to play ads to pay their high price per listener per hour for a license to play/Promote the music that people buy due to hearing it on the Radio. So its like asking someone to do a favor for you and then turn around and charge them for doing that favor for you. Its like a dog who bites the hand of the master that feeds it. After a while that dog is put down. But yes there is a legal way to run an Internet Radio station eventually for FREE. Either through Radionomy which does force people to not have a song longer than 15 minutes in length. That kills Progressive Rock, Album Rock for songs like Genesis – Supper’s Ready is 22 minutes long. Or how about some of those Yes songs. So as a Progressive Rocker I could not use them. You may be able to as long as your Top 40, Mainstream Rock and your songs ae like 5 minutes long and you pay close attention to that clockwheel and schedule those trigger files that plays audio just as a filler in case there is no ad available in that listeners area. Go with DJC Media’s Ads Wizz program http://djcmedia.com tell them The Legacy sent you. Wes will treat you very well and get you started.
