What Our Customer Say

I've been a radio DJ for over 40 years (now retired) and used radio automation before as a Asst PD and MD.
 I like your software. Very easy to use

I have been in radio for over 30 years and used all the
major automation software
costing 1000 to 10 of thousands of dollars. As soon as I tried nextKast it took me
15 minutes to have it up and broadcasting …
a simple but powerful program that rivals
any major radio automation.
The next best thing the Price! Wow!


I like it alot simple, right to the point!
