A professional radio broadcaster, Barbara Kaiser hired Duncan Crary Communications to help her create and brodcast her program on the Internet.

Podcasting vs. Webcasting

Brodcasting music on the Internet can be challenging if you want to play major record label music on your program. Duncan helped Barbara find an online service called Live365.com that is specificialy geared to help Internet radio broadcasters play major record lable music legally. Live365.com holds all the music licenses required so that broadcasters can play the music they love and the artists get paid the royalties they are due!

Webcasting is different than “podcasting” because listeners cannot download the program like a podcast (those are the current rules to keep those music industry folks happy). Instead, the 3-hour broadcast is streamed on a continuous 24-7 loop.
