Internet Radio. Podcasting. Streaming Broadcast. Call it what you wish. The Internet has made it possible for anyone with some very basic equipment and some bandwidth to start their own online audio program.
Formats are varied. Streaming Broadcasts come in any flavor you would like: a wide array of musical genres, comedy, talk, educational, and the list continues.
For all intents and purposes, this article will focus mainly on the Talk format, although it may certainly apply to any format in which on-air caller audio is desired, such as a call-in request program.
