Live Internet Radio
This is a three stage process. The first is your radio studio, which can be a full setup with studio equipment or a simple desktop computer and microphone. The live audio feed is processed by some free software; it is then broadcast or ‘streamed’ from your church, home, studio or office via the internet to our web radio servers (second stage). You have then formed a live broadcast and the third stage is the listeners, who can tune in worldwide (or using our stream geo locking system, can be limited to any country). Live Audio Source ?

What Are You Waiting For?
Ways in which you can set up an internet broadcast using GWM Media
Internet radio overcomes those issues and will let you get your students broadcasting in no time. There are no broadcasting license fees to pay, only the cost of your streaming media server (which is what GWM Media provides) and then any copyright fees paid to MCPS/PRS and PPL if you’re streaming copyrighted music, which you’d be paying normally anyway with an FM or AM broadcast. You don’t even need any special equipment to broadcast, or a studio! A simple PC and microphone can be used to either broadcast live content – or recorded content can be made and uploaded as a Podcast to our Podcasting service, or to our radio automation system ‘Auto DJ’ which you can then schedule to stream 24/7 – or whenever you like, without the need to even run anything from the school or colleges end! Learning centers looking to set their students up with real world radio studio experience can also benefit from the power of internet radio, as it is very simple to take a live feed from a studio mixing desk and run it via a PC, onto a live streaming server.

Listener countries are automatically determined, and the software used by the listener to tune into the stream is noted and identified as a media player or stream ripper to assist in abuse detection.

User agents (how people tune in)
SEE WHICH MEDIA PLAYER IS MOST POPULAR
Top user agents are charted and graphed according to listener minutes and number of sessions. Each user agent is also classified as a legitimate media player (such as WinAmp, iTunes, etc.), or a stream ripper (a program used to steal music from your stream) to assist in abuse detection.
Music track statistics
FREQUENCY AND POPULARITY OF TRACKS
The tracks report provides information about the frequency and popularity of the tracks played on your stream.
Track popularity is determined based on the number of tune-ins/tune-outs during a particular song over the past 30 days, and this is used to compile a “least popular” and “most popular” tracks list. This provides an excellent indicator of your listeners’ tastes for particular songs.

Solutions for Schools, Colleges and Universities
This guide is to provide a simple resource for anyone in education who is considering offering their students a chance to delve into the world of radio broadcasting. Setting up an internet radio station is perhaps the easiest and most cost effective way of bringing the exciting medium of radio into the classroom. Traditionally schools and colleges have done RSL (Restricted service license) broadcasts on AM/FM. This comes with great burdens as it is very expensive to setup, not only in the cost of radio transmission equipment – but also the licensing fee and application process via OFCOM, which can cost a great deal of time and money – there is also then the worry that the license will not be awarded to you.
How can setting up an internet radio station benefit our students?
Put simply, Internet radio can offer you a highly cost effective and simple method to give your students a rich media experience.
- Significantly cheaper than a traditional AM or FM broadcast
- No sophisticated equipment needed, use your existing PC’s and some free software
- Easily set up a 24/7 broadcast from archived content
- Gives your students real world experience, which other schools may not offer
- Offers something directly engaging to parents and the local community
