Radionomy Offers Anyone Their Own Full-Featured Radio Station–And Ad $$, Too

Radionomy, a Europe-based streaming service, is offering users the change to create a do-it-yourself radio station, following in the steps of Live365.

The new platform allows you to create music playlists and schedules from a universe of songs (just like a real radio station), record your own jingles and IDs (just like a real radio station) and record talk segments (just like a real radio station).  Everything can be programed up to a month in advance.

Even cooler is the chance to collaborate with anyone else on the planet.  And because Radionomy sells ad time, there’s a money-making opportunity.  The company’s most popular channel brings in about $2,000 a month to its progammers.

This is a fantastic opportunity for radio wonks, political types, gadget geeks, broadcasting students and businesses looking to incorporate something new into their marketing plans.

    Aside from the obvious music-bias, is this a lot different from the really popular BlogTalkRadio.com? I was involved with a show on that platform for about a year and it was a lot of fun. I think with BTR you could work your way up from free to ad-supported too, depending on popularity.

  2. Brett says:

    Radionomy is different than Blog Talk Radio for a couple reasons. First off, it's completely free: they cover streaming costs, server costs and pay all music rights royalties. Beyond that, they share ad revenue with producers. Radionomy also has a completely professional programming tool that feels like a real Radio DJ tool…jingles, newscasts, podcasts, fades, unlimited uploads…these are real programming tools.
