Not all talk radio hosts are geniuses, which is why many inspire so much ridicule and rage from listeners. If you’ve ever flipped on a talk radio show and thought you could do a better job than the current host, then now’s the time to put your money where your mouth is. With Spreaker, you can let out your inner Ryan Seacrest and launch your very own live radio show in minutes.
Create a free account with Spreaker or connect through Facebook to begin. Give your new radio show a name and tags – to help people find it online – and then start recording individual episodes. When you click “Broadcast” you’ll be taken to Spreaker’s DJ Console, a virtual version of what you’d find in the control room at a typical radio station. Populate a music tracks list, choose any sound effects you’d like to use, and set the volume to the appropriate level. Select whether you’d like to record a podcast – which is essentially a taped radio show – or go live, and then click the red “Record” button to begin. It’s your radio show, so you can discuss and do whatever you want. And because you’re online, you don’t have to worry about offending advertisers or cutting to commercial breaks the way your colleagues on terrestrial radio often do.
Of course, you might not have as many listeners as your colleagues on terrestrial radio, either. That’s why it is important to get to work promoting your new radio show by posting links on Facebook and other social media applications. Spreaker lets you embed recorded episodes on any page, and even plays live radio shows on iPhones. For wannabe radio hosts and anyone else who’s got something to say, Spreaker is a fun application to try out.
