I am planning to build a Hub Page that will be home for a Internet Radio Station. I know that you can have a link to access a video file, but what I really need is to just access a sound file, or maybe have the download available on the page.
I could put the sound file on a video with related graphics, but we are recording radio shows in full stereo so I would like to have that option.
Any help, Thanx greatly
Linking to audio files is not wrong in and of itself, as long as you do not exceed the two links to any single domain permitted under the TOS.
On the other hand, I do not think that HubPages is a suitable home for an internet radio station. It sounds too much like a landing page, which could likely be seen as "overly promotional" in violation of the TOS.
TheWriteMan, I agree with WE that HubPages is not the best place for what you're thinking of doing.
Not only are you only allowed two links to the same domain on any hub, but repeatedly linking to the same domain across different hubs will also get you in hot water with HP.
Have you considered using WordPress or something similar? WP is free and you won't run across the limitations that you will here.
My knowledge of Internet radio stations is minimal, so perhaps someone else has better suggestions. I would bet there are other sites out there that house and promote Internet radio shows, but I could be wrong.
Thanx for the info.
I also have Yahoo Site builder and I am sifting through the instructions on the software. A lot of functions for software is not that well explained, so time consuming to be sure before going that direction.
What is "TOS"?
There are sites that host streaming audio, but they are pretty horrible page layouts, about 80% ads of every sort, and one small space for your Radio Station.
The main linking question is that you would have to be able to "Start" or "Play" the audio file, and how to set that up.
Best of luck with your Hubs!
As far as starting playback, what can be done is to create a simple link to the audio file. HubPages does not allow you to insert interactive HTML code and the like. You may want to consider setting up a blog, which offers greater flexibility.

My Take on Hub Pages. It's alright for them to take our content and just add whatever type of adds they want. Why? Because when someone reads ""our content"" and clicks on one of these adds, Hub Pages makes money. Yes you say, they share it with us. The Truth! Hub...

So, I've had a hub unpublished due to HP claiming that it's overly promotional.The hub only has 2 outbound links ( which is the number of links we're allowed to put for the other external sites ) this is the only thing that I'm having in my hub.There is also NO amazon products or Ebay or...

Is there a way to include a hyperlink to another website without transfering the user away from Hubpages? In other words, is there a way to force a new window so that the original page is still present?

On some of my hubs I would like to post links to other web pages or websites. Is that okay? I am thinking of links to online retailers I am not affiliated with or links to websites dedicated to a specific subject. Such as offshore fishing or fishing reel maintenance. I want to write some...

I'm pretty new to HubPages (joined 6 weeks ago but got "busy" about 2 weeks ago posting Hubs) -- I got spanked last week and had a hub taken down temporarily for citing direct links to the particular information relating to multiple parties (all of which linked to SEC.gov, but different...
