Spreaker (http://www.spreaker.com) offers a new perspective on online radio: everyone has a voice and everyone gets a chance to speak their mind. By registering for free on www.spreaker.com you can record podcasts or go live with your own personal radio shows, audio web shows, start a discussion on whatever topic you wish, and people will listen.
It’s easy to start: Log in, or register with your Facebook account, and set up a profile by adding your personal information.
Click on the “Broadcast” link to start your show, and think of a snappy title for your show. Then select what category your show falls under.
Click on “Broadcast” and the DJ console will load. Choose to go live or record a podcast.
Start recording! From here you can start your radio show by clicking on the circular button in the “Broadcast section”. Prepare an intro, or improvise on the spot for a more casual feel. Conduct interviews, respond to callers using Skype, and take in requests from listeners using Spreaker’s instant messenger.
Share your show on Facebook, Twitter, embed on your personal blog, and elsewhere. Get your friends’ attention and gain listeners with every broadcast.
To make your show more enriched and personalized manage media files and commercial breaks:
Populate your tracklist. Click the add button pick out some music tracks from the the Music library, or you can add your own media by clicking on “upload.” Drag and drop the track over one of the mixing decks.
Add sound effects. Use the effects pad to browse available sound effects or upload your own. Add laughter, applause, and other quirky sounds to give your show some panache.
Take Commercial breaks. The Commercial break countdown tells you how long before the next break starts, or trigger commercial break before the counter reaches zero so you can manage your show more easily.
Spreaker is the perfect platform for casual podcasting. You can add a new episode of your podcast from everywhere and it becomes immediately accessible to your audience (they can listen to you live or play the recording afterwards) as you can also embed your shows in blogs, websites. You can also embed in your facebook fan page.
Easy, fast, and fun. You’re on the air in 3, 2, 1…!!!
