Broadcasters have the flexibility to change the timing of their live broadcasts, to any open time slot that is shown to be available on either station 1 or station 2. This includes the ability to change the hours of their broadcasts and the days of the week of their broadcasts. Broadcasters may also change the frequency of their broadcasts, from daily to weekly, weekly to bi-weekly, or to multiple hours a day or multiple times a week. This process is simple and painless, and takes our staff minutes to accomplish any desired changes! Just ask, and it will be accomplished almost instantly, and the changes will show up everywhere, including other syndication locations! See open time slots for station 1 (http://bbsradio.com/calendar-timing-on-show/station-1) and station 2 (http://bbsradio.com/calendar-timing-on-show/station-2).
We can record and time your broadcasts so that they are compatible with AM and FM stations desiring to air your talk show program segments. This means they must be in the proper format, be of high-enough sound quality, be edited into the proper timing intervals, and have the necessary bumpers and liners attached. We do this free of charge when requested by our broadcast hosts. We can also deliver the files to the appropriate destinations. (AM and FM Broadcast Ready!)
Broadcasters can be heard during their live broadcasts on BBS Radio's customized Android smart phone app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bbs.radioapp&hl=en), Apple smart phone app (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bbs-radio/id864799909), and Windows phone app (http://windowsphoneapk.com/APK_BBS-Radio_Windows-Phone.html). BBS Radio also provides two dedicated phone lines for each station stream, dial in numbers that accept listeners from any analog or digital device (regular phones, rotary phones or other listening device that may or may not have internet access). These dedicated smart phone apps and direct dial in numbers (for regular phone users) are FREE to use by all listeners wishing to tune into BBS Radio's live broadcast streams on either station 1 or station 2. We make listening easy for everyone that does not have a computer, or a laptop, or other internet connection, at no cost. Download the free BBS Radio Android phone application and/or the free BBS Radio iPhone / iPad / iPod application with one touch listening options for great live talk radio on either Station #1 or Station #2. These smart phone apps provide one touch listening access, and one touch phone in access on a toll-free 800 call-in number to engage the broadcast hosts while they are live streaming (on air). The smart phone apps also provide one touch access to BBS Radio's website, schedule, e-mail, and social sites pages like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. These incredibly well designed smart phone apps will make listening to, and interacting with, BBS Radio hosts simple and enjoyable!
We update and edit live broadcasts regularly for any sound problems, mistakes, requested verbal changes, timing issues, dynamic levels, and other mistakes that may happen from time-to-time during live broadcasts, before they become available for download as an archive file and before they are syndicated to other radio portals! Free of charge! We also, upon request, edit delivered files. Delivered files (delivered broadcasts) that were originally taped by other radio networks, almost always include advertisements, bumpers, liners and station promos that are undesirable. We can remove these files easily! Free of charge! We can also add new (up-to-date) audio segments that hosts wish to include, as they may be more suitable for a rebroadcast on the BBS Radio Network, or because they may have been unavailable during the initially taping session. (Professionally Edited for Podcasting!)
When necessary, broadcasters can prerecord shows during times and days that are different from their regularly scheduled broadcasting time slot. This allows the hosts and guests the freedom and flexibility to tape their broadcasts during more convenient times. Guests living in other times zones, especially guests living oversees, greatly enjoy this benefit! It is important to note, many BBS Radio hosts interview extremely important people with very busy schedules, and BBS Radio's staff will make a concerted effort to make time available for these special interviews, during hours that are most convenient to all parties concerned. Pre scheduling of shows can be scheduled at anytime their is an open time slot on either station 1 or station 2. If one of our stations is free, and no broadcast is scheduled, we will make that time available for a prerecord, free of charge! (Pre-taping Interviews for Flexibility!)
Live talk show broadcasts are edited, coded, uploaded, archived, metatagged, and provided all the necessary text and field data for automatic syndication to other radio network portals within 24 hours after airing live on station 1 or station 2 network streams. Live broadcasts are recorded and archived at 44,100 Hz, at 128k bps, using joint stereo sound settings in mp3 format. Live talk show broadcasts are also taped in loss less wav format at 1411k. Ultimately, all programs are taped in two formats! This reduces the problems associated with software and hardware glitches and also gives the network a perfect copy as a backup, just in case! (128K Stereo MP3 Archives Available in 24 Hours or Less!)
Hosts can choose to use computers or phones with analog or digital signals. We can go from computer to computer, or computer to phone, mixing all signals in real time as necessary, using our custom systems. Currently our broadcast hosts use any one of the following products to broadcast with: VoIP Landlines, Analog 'Pots' Landlines, Cell Phones, Softphones, Smart Phones, Rotary Phones, iPods, iPads, Laptops, Google Voice, Google Hangout, Skype, or IP Codec. Our systems allows for live broadcast streams to feed into dial-in conferencing centers and/or any type of analog or digital conferencing system the host may utilize and/or desire. Dozens of people can simultaneously engage in a live talk show discussion even when the participants are using different communication devices or signals. Best of all, hosts can broadcast from anywhere in the world, and can communicate with cohosts, guests and callers from all corners of the earth. BBS Radio's staff initiates the calls to all hosts, cohosts and guests to make sure everyone is connected optimally. This allows us to manage all the speakers individually, so we can adjust sound levels and modulate tones that are most appropriate for each participant. It also allows us to communicate with each participate individually, without affecting the broadcast or interrupting the conversation. Each station has 5 regular phones, each with their own unique dial in number (each capable of handling digital and analog signals) and each station has one digital computer connection that allows for Skype and other exclusively digital signal connections. (Analog or Digital, Computer or Phone!)
Prominent display of donation buttons and payment links! Many of our hosts have paypal donation buttons and links displayed on their most highly visible content creations. You can post them within any piece of content you create, including each podcast episode and throughout your program page. We also post your donation button, and/or payment link(s), on the top of our home page during your live broadcasts. (High Visibility of Donations Links!)
Broadcasters can request the rebroadcast of prior taped shows aired on other radio networks simply by emailing their audio files to our attention, or by providing a URL link to their program page, which should contain a download link of the audio podcast! Network programming consists mostly of live engineered programs. However, we also re-stream programming, handle simulcasts, syndicate podcasts and air programming delivered to us electronically. Programs files that are delivered to the network can be sent to us in any bit rate or format. We will then convert the files into the proper format, making sure the sound is as good as, or better than, the original file sent, for re broadcasting and podcast syndication. All files can be sent to us (regardless of the size) for free utilizing online email programs like wetransfer.com. Delivered shows can be sent at anytime, but should be sent at least one hour prior to scheduled broadcast. Hosts may also provide URL links to their prior broadcasts. In most cases, other networks will provide a download link to each episode.
We will create for your program a professional intro, outro, and one commercial. All we really need is ad copy (text for the audio tracks). We will then tape a voice, usually ours, or yours, or someone else you have in mind, via phone or Skype, then embed selected music in the audio track, music you send us (that you have derivative rights to use) or music you select from our large database. We will then send you the finished product! This process usually takes about 24 hours! Intros are usually 20-40 seconds in length and are played at the start of your live broadcasts. It's an audio track that welcomes the listeners to your show. It should be something quick and compelling; something that draws the listener into your program. Outros are usually 30-60 seconds in length and are played at the end of your live broadcasts. It's an audio track that promotes you, your website, your contact information and thanks the listener for tuning in to your show. Commercials are usually 60-120 seconds in length and are played during your breaks. It's an audio track that promotes your show, your products, your services and your contact information, and compels a listener to action! (Creation of Intro, Outro and Commercial!)
We are a fully reporting corporation and submit royalty payments to the music performance agencies! We can play music during your live broadcasts. However, for your protection, we will edit all music out of your broadcasts (and replace them with an audio liner) or edit the tracks down to 30 seconds or less. We do this before the broadcast is converted into a podcast, uploaded into syndication and made available for download by the listening audience. If you are doing interviews with musicians and bands, you may play longer music segments, assuming you have their okay! BBS Radio plays, almost exclusively, indie music between live talk show broadcasts! We believe it's the unsigned artists and bands that deserves a shot! If you are a lover of music, like BBS Radio, then you'll love that fact. (We are Fully Reporting and do this for you!)
We handle all call-ins through our US/Canada toll free 888 numbers and our direct station call-in lines. These lines are for the listener to interact with the broadcaster and guests during live or pre taped broadcasts. Station 1 and Station 2 have multiple call-in lines, from multiple carriers, for maximum clarity and fluidity. These 888 numbers hunt between these 5 distinct analog/digital lines per station for an open line. Once a caller rings, in an effort to interact with a host, the board operator will answer the call, acquire the necessary information requested by the host (usually a name and location), and then pass this information onto the host, either by text, by ring tone, or verbally. The hosts give directions to the board operator as to how the calls should be handled and how to alert or convey this information to the host. (Toll Free Call-in numbers! USA & Canada!)
Live Talk Radio broadcasts are streamed in various bit rates for all connection speeds and quality preferences. Whatever the Listener desires, the Listener gets!

The board operator handles half a dozen call-in lines and digital lines to get everyone, guests, callers and hosts on the right connection, based on the device they are using like a phone, analog or digital connection, computer, iPod, iPad, conference system, other network studio stream, Skype, Google Hangout, etc. When the broadcast is finished, the audio engineer will edit out any problems (noted during the broadcast) like loud noises, background mistakes, dial tones, false starts, overly long pauses, etc., when required, or when desired by the host.

Audio archive podcast ownership rights are shared by BBS Radio and the podcaster unless otherwise stated prior to podcasting. In other words, both the host and the network have a 100% right to do with the audio files and information as they so choose, without the involvement or remuneration of the other. Exclusive rights can be obtained for $10/per audio episode and/or live broadcast! (Shared or Exclusive Rights!)
All advertising and sponsorship revenues are yours to keep! Over time, we may recommend sponsors looking for a home. Hosts may advertise on their profile page(s), within their episodes, during their live broadcasts or syndicated podcasts, on their profile pages, and within any content they create. Show hosts are encouraged to advertise themselves, their advertisers and sponsors, and keep all the money! (Keep 100% of Your Earnings!)
Unmolested content with no advertisement or content attachments to your shows page, content pages, feeds, or other content materials. No auto-tagging of your information! No automatic insertion of materials via code, text, or tagging system! All of your information on BBS Radio will only contain what you intend, and what you are aware of, and nothing else! (Unmolested Content!)
No advertisements or commercials are added to any of your audio productions. We don't tag your audio files with code! We don't add sound files to the beginning or end of your broadcasts or podcasts. We don't physically add audio sounds to your broadcasts or podcasts! All other networks we know of, want to promote themselves so badly, they will literally add sound files (commercials and advertisements) to your audio podcasts and broadcasts, which later requires editing services to remove! They will also run commercials and network liners to your live broadcast streams. We don't! They will also use code to insert commercials and network liners! They will even tag your show with hidden code to reflect their ownership of your materials! We won't! You will love the way we do business! (Unmolested Live Broadcasts and Podcasts!)
BBS Radio Talk Radio Difference!
Professional, live and engaging talk radio is where it's at today, and we deliver! At BBS Radio there are always live engineers in the studio, professionals handling and micro-managing all the details of the live broadcast, including initiating all calls to all participants, screening any in-coming callers, handling all mixing panels and boards, running introductory bumpers, choreographing all commercials and liners, removing audio problems from the audio track, fixing problems on the fly, and much more. There are actually live people here to answer all of your guest's or caller's questions while facilitating the entire production. BBS Radio provides the very best in live professional talk radio broadcasting services! We are a well established leader in remote engineered talk radio!
Everything is done via telephone and/or computer. We'll initiate (and pay for) all calls to you (the host) and your guests, no matter where they are on the planet. And then the fun begins.
All you really need is a phone, although some hosts prefer to use a computer or laptop for broadcasting.
We have a live remote broadcasting studio with many computers and a lot of hardware, working with software, to facilitate professional quality live radio broadcasts from all over the world. Since 2004 our facility handles and manages everything remotely with live engineers, doing away with the outdated model of having to travel to a broadcasting studio to do a personal and/or professional live broadcast. People can now do it professionally from the comfort of their own home for little to no cost! We'll prove it!
In our remote studio facility there are people handling all aspects of the broadcasts, much like any live radio studio or live music recording studio. The BBS Radio Network always has live personnel in the studios working with its lineup of broadcasters. You too will have a "live studio engineer" that will professionally handle your live broadcasts remotely, from the BBS Radio broadcasting studios.
Your "live studio engineer" will call you and your co-host(s) and then all of your guest(s), on separate lines. They'll optimize sound levels so everyone can be heard, so you hear everything, with minimal sound degradation. Once levels are optimized your engineer will count you on to the air, after running any introductory audio file "intro" you may have. They will monitor your broadcast, changing levels on the fly to achieve the best sound quality while fixing problems as they may occur. If you drop off the broadcast suddenly, because of a bad phone line or poor internet connection, or you lose one of your guests (that may have called in on a weak cell phone), then your engineer will be there to help take care of the problem so that the broadcast continues as smoothly as possible! You'll be amazed!
Your "live studio engineer" will edit the audio file after the broadcast to eliminate any hiccups or problems that may have occurred during the broadcast. Your engineer will run commercial audio files during your breaks and even help you create some, including intros & outros, and promotional spots for advertisers and show sponsors. They will screen call-ins to your program (as directed) and will let you know when you have callers waiting. They can do this in many ways, including via tones, voice or text. They will monitor your broadcasts, often preventing common problems that occur during live radio. Your engineer is your support staff during your broadcast and at any other time, for as long as you are with the network. Continuous live support!
We take the guess work out of broadcasting. There are many automated conferencing, teleconferencing, streaming "do-it-yourself" broadcasting solutions that a person can find; we just will not automate what should never be automated! You cannot beat a live service when doing live talk radio! A software solution just doesn't cut it. How does it fly when you're trying to obtain well known guests, advertisers, sponsors or any credibility in talk radio?
Your guests, listeners, sponsors, advertisers, friends, associates and customers will appreciate the quality and feel of having a professional handling your broadcast. It will add a polish to your broadcast that is sadly lacking with software solutions. It really is a more professional way to do your radio program and people will notice the difference! We provide the support and the "backbone" that no program should do without!
Competitors charge hundreds of dollars per week for live remote internet talk radio broadcasting services, we do not! We are one of the finest and the oldest remote internet radio broadcasting facilities in the world and we find those prices ridiculous. You will appreciate how we do business. Trying our services is effortless and painless, and our great prices will make you smile. Go month to month, no contracts or commitments necessary! Please call us for further information.

Expect the best, and get it all!
Is your image being tarnished because you are broadcasting with radio networks that are actually just fancy recording software? Are you losing your credibility with your audience because of the many problems you are experiencing? Are you not thrilled with your radio experience? Could that be due to dropped calls or annoyed guests? Could it also be due to poor sound levels or bad streaming quality? Are unscreened hecklers annoying your program? Are you receiving any potential interview candidates for review or are you left to find the guests by yourself? Are your talk radio program archives recorded and saved below 128k bps or possibly saved in a mono, and not stereo, format? Maybe there is no editing specialist around to make sure the final product is as desired. To put it bluntly, learning how to use a software program from an automated radio streaming portal can be daunting enough, especially when all you want to do is talk! Hey, if you are tired of having to do it all yourself or are just wanting to kick it up a notch, we can help. It's what we do! Let us do it for you. Enjoy knowing you are right where you need to be!
Talk Radio is a potent tool to deliver a message and/or to deliver brand awareness to just about anything. It can be powerful and profitable! Get ready to step in to a more traditional method of doing talk radio and allow our knowledgeable and enlightened staff of internet talk radio specialists to redefine what you thought possible.
BBS Radio is geared towards service. Our hosts just have to concentrate on doing great radio. We provide the finest remote live engineered service in internet talk radio. We charge a fee for that service, which happens to be quite low. We are one of the larger and more well known live internet talk radio networks, as we have been around awhile. We love talk radio and provide our talk show hosts with an excellent platform to build their program upon.
We do not make you sign a contract and you have the right to run your program any way you want to, without censorship or bias. We don't pressure you nor do we lie to you. Further, we don't advertise during your broadcasts nor add our station audio-liners to the beginning or ending of your live broadcasts or syndicated podcasts. All advertising revenues and sponsorship dollars are your to keep. In fact, we don't want to know who your clients are ("Financial backers"). You probably should think twice before giving that information to any talk radio network that requests it.
Once you host your program with us, we believe you'll stick around for a very long time. We are flexible and personable, and you can always expect us to be working from the heart! Where ever you or your co-host(s) are on the planet, where ever your guests are too, we'll connect up to you and everyone else, and make it all happen..... like magic!
