“A new generation of broadcasters are to join the world’s airwaves after the launch of open-source software which allows people to run a radio station from a single computer for free.Campcaster takes a regular PC and turns it into a tool for managing every aspect of a radio station broadcast,”the BBC reports. “The software is the idea of the non-profit Media Development Loan Fund, which aims to support independent news media in emerging democracies. Developer Douglas Ariennes told BBC World Service’s Digital Planet programme that as well as playing files, which can be done from any media player, Campcaster adds features specifically for radio broadcasting and uses it for all aspects of a radio station, such as the ability to stored and schedule music, line up news clips and interviews, and preview listen to a record before it is played on air”.
