Thanks for these - do you have a recommendation for an Alt Country stream?

Try the Always Country URL.  On a slow day they play Alt Country.

I'm not a pro at this.  I don't think it is 'tough,'  it is costly however.  You must own the music you are streaming. You also need to have streaming server/provider.  I know others can answer this much better than I.

Venus would have your answer - maybe wait till she pops in or IM her in-world.

Take a look at Shoutcast. It's very simple to setup.

It's not tough but it's not inexpensive.  I DJ in SL.  I rent a Shoutcast stream for around 3900L/month.  The prices for streams varies and I need one that I can rely on.  Undoubtedly you can find one that is less expensive.  I also purchase my mp3s.  Many DJs take their tracks off of sites that offer them 'free'.  Artists deserve the recognition and remuneration for their efforts so I don't mind paying .99/track for the privilege of hearing/playing their music.  I 'stream' my music using an app called SAM. You don't need to purchase SAM to stream music.  You can use Winamp, which is free.

I believe that in order to use a stream with winamp you need to convert the file that comes with it.  This is beyond my expertise, though as I do not use winamp.

Any URL can be plugged into your land 'audio' and it will play on your land.  If you want to switch URLs without copy/pasting over all the time into land, you can purchase a radio in SL and use those URLs and others you add to the playlist card in the radio 'contents'.

I've probably given you more information than you need or want now.  If you have specific questions, please feel free to IM me inworld and I will try to help.
