much more than you tube for radioI share with you this review from Spreaker.

Much more than YouTube for Radio!

Spreaker allows you to host a Live Internet Radio Show, anywhere, anytime, with just a couple of clicks! It’s the easiest way to create and share Audio On-line.

Spreaker in a nutshell

  • Spreaker is an online application for creating and sharing live audio content across the Internet.
  • With Spreaker, users become Radio DJs and host personal radio shows that can be streamed live and listened through a widget which supports all the major social media and mobile platforms.
  • It’s very easy to create any kind of radio show – from music to talk – since everything can be made on-line thanks to a unique DJ console which allows real-time mixing of voice, music and sound effects.
  • On the other hand, listeners are able to discover interesting niche content which would not be found on traditional FM radios.

How is Spreaker Different?


  • Spreaker allows you to broadcast LIVE on facebook and other social media sites. In this way, your audience can interact with you using tools like twitter, Skype, chat-rooms, etc…
  • We provide music! A selection of Creative Commons music with more than 4.000 tracks is waiting for you. You can also upload your tracks as long as you are OK with broadcast licenses.
  • There is nothing to install! Everything is super Easy. Our mixing console is an online (Adobe-Flash based) tool and it works from any computer connected to the Internet.
  • You don’t need to broadcast 24/7. Spreaker users can create their own playlist or schedule and your show will fit in when you want.
  • Spreaker is a social website. Users can create networks around the type of content they prefer, comment on shows and exchange ideas in real time. And we connect with major social media sites so that it becomes very easy to grow your audience.

Can I embed the player in my Blog/website/…?

Of course you can! Spreaker is the perfect platform for casual podcasting. You can add a new episode of your podcast from everywhere and it becomes immediately accessible to your audience (they can listen to you live or play the recording afterwards).

Other cool things I should know

Spreaker is a USA – Italy operation.

Its development team is based in Bologna, the city where Guglielmo Marconi – the inventor of wireless radio – was born and developed his invention. Spreaker recently moved its headquarters to the Silicon Valley to boost its growth.

Currently we have an iPhone/iPad application for listeners. We are planning to release soon an application which allows you to mix and broadcast in real-time.
