I grew up listening to music because both of my parents were very passionate about it. The great thing about them is that they never limited themselves to one type, so I had great exposure to a wide variety of musical tastes in my formative years. I knew as I got older, I wanted to do something musically, but I also knew how hard it was to break into that business. I went to college and got a business degree, but that didn’t stop my dreams from wanting to come true. When I first heard about SHOUTcast, I knew that I had finally found the solution to having the best of both worlds.
While I do not have any music talent myself, I absolutely know music, so I know what is good and what is not. I had always tinkered with the idea of maybe trying a DJ gig out now and again with some friends who do that for a living, but getting SHOUTcast was even better because I could do it on my own timetable, plus I could call all the shots with it. I also liked that I would have a huge audience potential since anyone on the Internet would be able to listen to my show.
The reason I like SHOUTcast so much is because they make it very easy. They have all the software included in the package that anyone would need. The control panel is user friendly and very detailed, which is perfect for both beginners as well as people like me. I started off knowing that I would have to build up my following, but that did not take nearly as long as I thought. Now, three times a week, I put on a great music show that thousands of people listen to. It really is great!
