Guide Review - Pirate Radio
The Pirate Radio package puts Internet broadcasting into the palm of the common person, whether a 16-year-old teenager who wants to stream his favorite songs to his girlfriend on a Friday night or the senior citizen who wishes to upload a recorded show about tending a summer garden. It doesn't get any easier than this! The interface is simple and intuitive. Pirate Radio is similar to Shoutcasts' process except easier. With Shoutcast you must configure Winamp (since it broadcasts using that platform), download some additional software doo-dads and tinker with it more. Having done this in the past, I appreciate the simplicity of Pirate Radio and its setup.
Pirate Radio empowers anybody with the ability to reach the world on a shoestring.
