Playing vinyl records direct to an internet stream is the same as “going live” on the internet, and it’s amazing how little of that is done.
I think one thing that has increased live broadcasts are real-time U-stream feeds that can be viewed as video or heard as audio.
In the early experimental days back in 2007 on Shoutcast I did a few live broadcasts, and if you have callers you really need to be live or people will call in to your show while you’re in bed sleeping.
The one thing that always scared me about being able to “go live” is the fear that my mic might be left open without my realizing, and I’d be saying something embarrassing that would get picked up all over the world.
