their business model is stupid.
of course large numbers of newbies will go there bcuz it's free / ad supported.
they won't be able to keep up.
you get what you pay for.
full stop.

Zeno Fm is a good way to see the listener's response. I had 2 stations, one with oldies and one with chill out music.
The oldie station is doing well, the other is a disaster an i closed it.
The disadvantage with Zeno Fm, one cannot search for a station by genre.

Zeno has been a good place to start for a newbie, but their management of ads is really terrible. Ads just cut in over a song and at repeating times. We've tried get improvements from the staff, but I get the impression its run by 4 people.

We've been streaming 24/7 for the past 6 weeks and it's ok with listeners from around the country, but need to make a change to something better. Anyone got a suggestion for what is a good step up?

Live 365 works very well for me. The commercial overlays work right in where they're supposed to be, tech support is great, and I like the way my station sounds.

I stream live with RDJ using Rocket Broadcaster Pro to L365. It costs me $59 a month but that's a lot less than I'd spend doing music clearance on my own.

Live 365 looks intriguing. Seems a bit spendy compared with other sites. What's the down side?

Anyone other sites that look good?

Does anyone have experience with Citrus3? I see that it works great with Radio DJ. If anyone has any insights I'd like to hear more.
