Not free, but looks pretty good. Well recomended, and not nearly as expensive as some other commercial systems. And it is all integrated into one system. Not a user yet, we don't have our station up yet, but this is what we're leaning toward.

Zara Radio is cool but is driving me crazy.

I really like the usability of Zara Radio. Plays your music from your file system, no making another copy of all your music and importing it into another database/central storage, easy to set up station IDs, nice graphical interface.

But It is driving me crazy that Zararadio will not recognise the microphone. I am running in a single sound card situation so that might be part of the problem. BUT IT WON'T WORK - for me.
