Btw, I asked them what the difference was between doing a show on Blogtalkradio and SRN Live. Here are the answers.

Probably the biggest thing I can find is here. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/premium.aspx
We offer everything they offer, only ours is free across the board, we
don't for example, charge $39.00/month $399.00/year just to move from
"free" to "Host Your Show with Skype". The only thing they offer which
we don't is "Promotional Widget Impressions" which there you pay for.
Blogtalk is huge, making your show invisible (a small fish in a very
large pond) where our network YOU are a very BIG fish, in a small pond.
Getting in on the ground floor of our network as we continue to grow
means you have a foot in the door, while our show numbers increase.
Item 12 here http://www.blogtalkradio.com/termsofuse.aspx
particular, if You are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe

your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act". We do not have copyright restrictions as we
pay royalties and are are fully licensed for all music through Loudcity.
And finally sound quality. Since I am a Linux user, I am not restricted
in any way, thus able to discern _actual_ truth. What I did to assess
audio quality (other than just objectively "listen" to a show); I picked
one of the "featured" shows, meaning a premium show where they pay each
month to be hosted by them, then checked it out with diagnostic tools.http://www.blogtalkradio.com/peter-joseph
Title: The Zeitgeist Movement 12/23/0 Artist: Peter Joseph
Comment: 12/23/09 The Zeitgeist Movemen Album: BlogTalkRadio.com
Year: 2009 Genre: Unknown
MPEG 2.5 layer III, 32 kbit/s, 11025 Hz mono
_Now_ I will test *our* network, which runs 24/7 playing 80's music.
Playing MPEG stream 1 of 1: srnlive.com ...
ICY-NAME: The Supernatural Radio Network
MPEG 1.0 layer III, 128 kbit/s, 44100 Hz joint-stereo
The difference is quite clear and incredibly stark! We stream CD
quality _stereo_ audio (exactly matching CD specifications) while
blogtalkradio is _mono_ and of about the same quality as AM radio!
Blogtalkradio streams ONE channel mono at exactly 1/4 of OUR quality!
And finally, there's nothing that says you can't do a hi-fi show on our
network, then upload and host it on blogtalkradio as well, if you want.
One of our top shows does just that. http://ghostdivas.mypodcast.com/
We can also provide PHP/SQL webhosting of your show's website, the above
shows they are all the
same, cookie-cutter with no originality. On our servers we can host
anything you care to create, from plain HTML to PHP/SQL dynamic websites
which provide user interaction, WITHOUT any unwanted spam banners! I
try to steer people towards the Drupal CMS, but we also host Wordpress,
which one of our top rated weekly shows uses. http://www.ghostdivas.com
Personally I'd rather have and promote a URL like http://myradioshow.com
which we provide, than one like http://www.blogtalkradio.com/myradioshow
When possible, we protect your image by grabbing the major top level
domains and configure them to forward people to your site, for example:http://ghostdivas.net/http://ghostdivas.org/
This prevents nefarious people from grabbing them and using them against
you -- having all the major top levels protects _your_ image from abuse!
Feel free to ask any specific questions I haven't already covered.
