How to DJ
Jan 28 Tripradio changes: there's now a fallback stream which plays music when there's no DJ. As a result, the username is changed to tripradio - the password isn't changed. To get FTP access to upload fallback stream music, pm bod.
How to apply
Send a message to either bod , Teknos , or trainwreck on the IRC chat to get the streaming password.
Please also ask in the IRC chat channel #tripradio on Snoonet if you have any other questions.
These people are known to DJ on the radio. Please add yourself to this list.

Basic guide to DJing
If you are totally new to DJing, here's what you need to know:
- For Mac, I recommend Nicecast. I think its the best one out there and streams meta information.
- For Mac and PC, the butt streaming software is good. However, I do not think meta information can be broadcast:
- Download butt here: http://butt.sourceforge.net
- Step 1: Select Stereo mix as Audio device.
- Step 2: Configure the server as per the server settings above
- Step 3: Press Play to start streaming.
