Become an Expat Radio DJ or Volunteer

 Expat Radio Taiwan is seeking volunteers to donate their time and band width. You can broadcast from your own home, office or studio. All you need is a PC with internet access and a microphone.


Prerecord your broadcast at a time and place of your convenience.

There are a few requirements.

  •     Expat Radio request that you be an expatriate person or member of the international community of Taiwan.
  •           Refrain from excessive use or profanity and maintain an ethical, creative and responsible demeanour.
  •            ERT is licensed in the United States and must abide by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act “The recordings that you play in your programs must originate from an authorized source (that is, created originally by the band or record label that owns the copyright), and are not unlawful copies that have been downloaded illegally or obtained from an unauthorized third party. You may include these authorized recordings in your program without further permission or payment as long as you follow the rules set forth by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) of 1998.”
  •             All prerecorded music must be licensed with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC (The liner notes of your CDs should indicate in small print whether the songwriters are affiliated with ASCAP, BMI or SESAC).
  •            Music by artist not associated with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC is permissible but Expat Radio Taiwan must be given a copy of written permission by the copyright owner.
  •       “One key rule relates to the number of songs from a particular artist that may be included in an 'eligible' Internet broadcast. As a general matter, in any three-hour period, you should not intentionally program: more than three songs (and not more than two songs in a row) from the same recording (or album); or more than four songs (and not more than three songs in a row) from the same recording artist or anthology/box set. Because of this rule, you cannot legally have a program that plays only music from one artist or a small number of artists. On the other hand, if you own the rights to all the content being played on your station or you have obtained the necessary permission and authorization to play certain songs, these songs would be exempt from the rules set forth by the DMCA.”
  •            Please respect the creators of the music, no  unauthorized (pirate) copies of music are allowed.
