Now anyone can be a talk radio star with do-it-yourself talk radio on the Internet from GiveMeTalk! Consumers and businesses can easily produce on-demand audio programs on a PC, Mac or notebook environment, then promote and broadcast the programs via the Internet all for free.

One of the major forces in Internet Talk Radio, GiveMeTalk! offers all the tools necessary to create, promote and broadcast an Internet talk radio show. A first time broadcaster can register on the site, and download the free GiveMeTalk! Home Studio (GiveMeTalk!'s easy-to-use audio application) and record a talk radio broadcast off-line. When the show is complete, the broadcaster uploads it to GiveMeTalk!'s Web site, and it's ready to go. The broadcaster receives a personal, customizable page on the site to promote the broadcast.
