    Yeah as you know.. Warez-bb already have one shoutcast radio for their forum members.

    I know that in bhw there is alot of people who would love to shoutcast some streaming music out to our speakers.

    Is there any interest in this?
    Maybe 4-5 user would have this radio up for us, and using mic, talking between the songs? :)

    Would be a funny part into an already great forum.

    Name of the radio? Ofcourse Blackhatt´in Radio Station. ;)

    I like the idea, I wouldn't have anyone doing any talking over it, what I would recommend is have a thread each week were people can put up there tune of the week, have someone or something which picks out so many random tunes that could be played in the radio each week, then you get everybody's taste.

    Love the idea though.

    Used to do a radio station for a website i use to run and it was a pain in the ass!

    Unless you have a really speedy internet connection and a tonne of music already on your pc then it is a headache to keep going.

    Thing's could have changed and i could have just been using crappy software but i doubt it has improved much!

    Great idea. That way we don't get too much of one persons music, and nobody can ruin it by talking for too long. A quick shout out there and the might be fun though.

    Best way to have this up and running would maybe be if someone could install it on a linux box somewhere.
    And then we have 10-15 DJ´s running it 24/7 or even use playlist during those hours/days noone can be online.

    And yes, a "live" thread where users can suggest a song, or wishlist of any kind.

    Even have niched days. Like Monday: Rock `n Roll/50´s, Tuesday: Pop. Wednesday: Trance, Hardcore. Thursday: Hard Rock/Metal. Friday: Party Music.

    Saturday/Sunday - Playlist or 60-70-80-90´s Music, Sunday: Relax, Yoga music.. :)

    Would you mind trying to find that thread?

    Maybe i have missed that one.

    We should make an "Interest" list of which people want´s to be sending any day with this radio. As a schedule of which hours/day you can be DJ a shoutcast radio like for BHW. :)

    Can just imagine someone swearing or promoting this and that while you are with your children or at work! Not all that good really.

    What i meant was.. Having someone at the mic saying/talking "about seo things maybe for 1-2 minutes between the songs.. and like "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand now we have a suggestion from blabla, he wishes U2 - What a beautiful Day..." music starts.. and then go on to next music wish.. nothing advanced. Why swearing and that stuff.

    This will be an real radio, not a noobie shit radio station..

    I mean if there is over 100.000 members here ON BHW, We would probably have alot of users listening to that radio.. I would have for sure. It´s more funnier listening to a live shoutcast, instead of a playlist from your winamp, you already listened on thousands of times. Also have a mix of jokes between, and other funny stuff. :)

    We just have to live with pessimists.. :)
    I think this would be a very very good idea really.
    And this is quite alot a forum suggestion.

    We should though considering having atleast 15-20 persons who would be/feel interested in this.

    Building up a webpage for this would be no problem.
    But how to setup a shoutcast server, schedule, etc i would let someone do.
    Haven´t done that before so.

    What i was getting at was seeing as this forum is huge and no doubt all the people who will listen to the radio will want good stuff!

    But then the people who are controlling the radio need to be very trust worthy, having the power to advertise to 1000's of people who are very highly targetted just by speaking should not be abused!

    Oh and the idea about speaking about seo etc inbetween every song or whatever means it's got to be factual info... sounds complicated stuff really!

    What i mean was.. Talking about seo jokes? Or contribute to people maybe?

    Those people who should running this radio, should be sign under not to advertise like 50% of the time man. What do you think? :)

    You think it would be a commercial radio station or? Like Mcdonalds Radio Station?

    No a pure BHW Radio Station, nothing else. ;)

    I have plenty of music, various types, mostly rock though, but I like what Choronzon said maybe we could have some members own music up there as well.

    Maybe we could advertise for people on here if they were willing to pay monthly fee or something for advertising.
