So I am still looking around for a way for me to get my radio on the internet legally and not paying thousands of dollars for something complicated. I came across a website called radio.co (https://radio.co). From my understanding from the tutorial videos they upload they have a database of music you can add (something like radionomys) plus you can upload your own. The only main question I have is will I be legal if I use them. I was unable to find on their site that you can’t play copyrighted music.

What About Music Licensing?
You don’t actually need to own a license in order to broadcast your stream online, however if your station plays music, as opposed to a talk radio station, you may need to obtain a license in order to fully protect yourself and ensure you are not infringing on anyone else’s copyright.
Radio.co is an internet radio broadcasting platform that focuses on providing the latest tools and services – Content broadcasted using our services is entirely your responsibility.
Figuring out the type of license you need can seem confusing at first as there are many companies offering coverage, however the easiest approach is to use an umbrella license that covers you internationally, such as: BMI, SoundExchange, or ASCAP.
