Technical overview of an FM radio station based on open source and DIY

In this talk we will present the technical challenges we have encountered while building an FM & web radio station from scratch and the innovative solutions that we have applied to them, utilizing open source software, and - where possible - hardware, as well as developing our own components, such as our software FM MPX signal generator, our producer-friendly GTK desktop application and many more. Furthermore, we will elaborate on the technical processes of building a music and sample library using open-source software and services, and how we utilize this library to produce an automated broadcast using our custom GStreamer-based audio clip scheduler.
