    I am looking to build an online radio station for one of my sites. Who has the best deals? I am looking to start around 10 listeners, and build from there. I want 128 kbps.

    That place looks good, I am trying to get some reviews from some of these companies.

    Thoughts?

    SHOUTcast is one of the best, free.

    Can you actually place it on your site, run tons of bandwidth, and run ad free?

    You'll need to set a server, then yes you can have the player on your domain, don't know about the ads. I will have to ask about and come with answers, a friends used to run an online radio with SHOUTcast and it did pretty well.

    This is just something for my members to listen to when they are bored. Makes them stay on the site longer.
