I Currently use Edcast Standalone its simple, free and very stable, once installed and set up just click connect when ever you want to broadcast, i use my booth out aux port on my controller which i connect to an external sound card, however you can just use a line in port on your pc or laptop, i started using this as in the past i had problems broadcasting my microphone via virtual dj's broadcaster.

You can down load it here you will also need lame encoder which can be found here

To Set Up

Step 1 - Install Edcast Standalone
Download Edcast Standalone software and install it.
Step 2 - Install the LAME MP3 Encoder
Navigate to ‘C:\ Program Files \ edcast’ and click ‘Save’. It is VERY important that you save this file inside the actual Edcast program folder.
Step 3 - Start Edcast Standalone and configure the encoder
(3) Click the ‘Add Encoder’ button
(4) Right-click the new encoder that appears below it
(5) Choose ‘Configure’ from the menu that appears
In the ‘Basic Settings’ section, set up the encoder.
(6) Enter your chosen bitrate - this must be equal or lower than the rate you purchased.
(7) Enter your samplerate - Enter 44100 for bitrates above 96, or 22050 for streams below 96.
(8) Number of channels - Enter 2 for bitrates above 48, choose 1 for bitrates below 48.
(9) Select the ‘MP3 Lame’ encoder
(10) Select ‘Icecast2’ for Icecast server, or ‘Shoutcast’ for Shoutcast server.
(11) Enter the host name of your server.
(12) Enter the port number of your server.
(13) Enter the DJ or Admin password of your server.
(14) (Icecast2 only) Enter the mount point - this will usually be /stream by default for Fast Serv Icecast2 servers.
In the ‘YP Settings’ section, enter your station details.
Click ‘OK’
Step 5 - Start encoding
(15) Tick the ‘AutoReconnect’ box
(16) Hilite the new encoder, then click the ‘Connect’ button
You should see information about the encoder status in the ‘Transfer Rate’ column. If it’s working properly, a numeric value will appear indicating the transmission speed.

This is a very good point, something that we all battle with. What I do is txt my friends etc to ket them know I am doing a set, which works sometimes if they can listen in.

Another thing is maybe go on to forums to promote your shows, look up Groove Finders, they have a list of radio shows that dj's play , maybe add yourself there, it will help people see when you are on etc.

It's hard to be honest, something I have delved in to for years.

Good luck.
