To broadcast your prerecorded songs or talk shows, just follow the instructions in my article how do I embed sound and music in a page?
However, if your recordings are popular enough to rack up serious bandwidth charges with your web host, or you don't have your own "serious" (as in: not free!) website that allows you to upload MP3 files, then you might want to consider hosting your own recordings on Live365.Com. Live365 offers lower monthly rates for those who own the rights to their own music, and your music will be hosted by a professional service that can't be overwhelmed by a sudden spike in popularity.
Those who want to distribute their own original material to thousands or millions of people without paying hosting fees should consider distributing their MP3 files via BitTorrent. This allows more or less unlimited users to listen to your show without incurring high hosting fees. But listeners must be savvy enough to install the BitTorrent software. And they must be willing to wait for the entire show to download before playback begins.
Now you know how to broadcast your prerecorded music. But what about live performances? That's the tricky bit. See the article How do I broadcast my own live music or talk show on the Internet?
