Always at the cutting cusp of web radio technology, KryKey has now released Lyvshow, a plugin to its web radio service that allows radio show hosters to publish their own material. It bypasses the standard KryKey studio and allows broadcasters to use their own software, be it Traktor, Virtual DJ or Itunes. It also incorporates Skype for ease of radio station callins. We’ll certainly be giving the new service a whirl over at http://shuffleradio.org

As a DJ when I purchased an MP3 player, I wanted one with the ability to record straight off my mixing desk. As flash as Apple ipods are, they are poor when it comes to their record features. I went for a Creative Zen V Plus, on which there were some half price deals on Amazon. Mine is only 4gb but has a linein record facility and a built in mike. It is ideal for DJs who wish to get their music online. For MP3 conversion I use Xilisoft audio convertor. I also have found a useful bit of software in MP3 reducer which changes the bitrate of your recordings. The Zens are now in better model format (8Gb) and are on Amazon for about £60. I’d recommend them for sure as I’ve been using mine for over a year now and not a single problem.Listen to Shuffle radio here
In this digital age what is the future of web radio? The internet provides us with the ideal opportunity to all become broadcasters. As fierce as the market is for listeners, I feel that web radio provides DJs with broadcasting opportunities like never before in history. If you’re good then your shows will get listeners. Krykey provides us with a great way of reaching our audiences and I can see it growing and taking listeners from established radio. It would be great if it could broadcast over DAB or traditional airwaves but with the new arrival of internet car radios etc, web radio is certainly a growing phenomenon. Not many people don’t carry mobile sound devices these days and web radio is a facility that will in the future be present on them all. It is a fun time to be a web radio DJ, I’m sure you’ll agree…krykey facebook group
This weekend saw Shuffle radio launch. It is a new service which will hopefully eventually run 24-7 with some of the shows being live – basically whenever I’m awake and on the computer you’ll be able to message me and I can do shoutouts, requests etc. The show aims to have a primarily house music base, though at the moment as most of my records aren’t yet digital the tunes range from sixties (doors, jefferson airplane) to cool tracks from eightites and present day. The station is open to advertising so if you want to send me any 30s – 1min audio mp3 adverts I will include them for you. Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Once we are established the show schedule should stabilise a little. We aim to be inviting lots of quality guest djs from around the world. SUpport us now, help us grow aqnd we can guarantee you that we will improve and provide you with he best online music experience… http://www.shuffleradio.co.uk Over and out!
