Streaming Radio Will Not Bring the End to Terrestrial Radio
Traditional radio streams live. They don’t run playlists and pre-packaged programming. Real personalities and staff are on duty now. They are awake.
Internet stations that only stream tend to be fully automated all the time. No life. No live shows. They are asleep.
Anyone hoping to rise to the top with only a stream will have to work harder. Much harder.

I’ve been talking for a long time about the big weakness of streaming radio, which is the lifeless automatic approach taken by most internet stations.
Yesterday KDX Worldround Radio began a series of experiments to make our station more “live”.
Step one was to start carrying “The Thom Hartman Program” and “Free Talk Live”, both talk/call-in shows, from their live feeds.
The impression made by “being live” is very strong and we are looking for more ways to do it.
Previously we carried the previous days recordings of those two shows, which became especially out-dated, for example, the day after “election day”, when the stale shows from yesterday still hadn’t experienced the “results”.
