To DJ on ANONRADIO

To become a DJ, first you must subscribe to the anonradio-l mailing list by sending an email to majordomo@sdf.org that says:

subscribe anonradio-l

Then, send a message to the list and introduce yourself. Tell us about the show you want to do, and request a time-slot — for the current schedule, just visit anonradio.net. When you are ready to stream and your show has been scheduled, you will be given a username, password, mountpoint and server name to stream your show to. Scheduled shows are automatically switched-in by the server.

Before getting your own show, you may like to try broadcasting during OpenMIC.

Streaming

There are a variety of tools that can be used to stream to aNONradio from a variety of operating systems.

Regardless of what software you use, please ensure that your outgoing stream conforms to the following specifications:

  Bit rate:     192 Kbps
  Sample Rate:  44.1 KHz
  Channels:     2 (stereo)
  Format:       mp3

liquidsoap

It is possible to stream a collection of audio files using liquidsoap:

liquidsoap 'output.icecast(%mp3, host="anonradio.net", port=8010,
user="YOURSDFUSERNAME", password="YOURICECASTPASSWORD",
mount="/YOURSDFUSERNAME", mksafe(playlist("/path/to/playlist.m3u")))'

playlist.m3u must then contain a list of these files. The above command must be terminated at the end of the show; if not, it will loop, resulting in weird behavior.

Mixxx

Mixxx is an open-source cross-platform graphical DJ tool which can stream to Icecast servers, including aNONradio. It is recommended if you are playing tracks from audio files stored on your computer.

butt

"butt (broadcast using this tool) is an easy to use, multi OS streaming tool. It supports SHOUTcast and Icecast and runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. The main purpose of butt is to stream live audio data from your computers Mic or Line input to an Shoutcast or Icecast server. Recording is also possible. It is NOT intended to be a server by itself or automatically stream a set of audio files."

Instructions on using butt to stream to aNONradio are forthcoming.

Nicecast

There is an SDF tutorial for setting-up Nicecast on Mac OS X with iTunes / Skype / whatever else, all with voice-over capability.

Ezstream

There are instructions for streaming with ezstream on Debian using PulseAudio.
