No 8000 streams, but that could take a few years to obtain.  Probably 
around 2000 in the first year and they won't be just music either. 
 Content will be provided by thousands the DJ's employed from all over 
the world to provide 2 hours a day of programming including 
announcements and advertisements.

I've been employed to write software to help the DJ's compile their 
shows, and at our end, compile the playlists for each station and 
control the playout software.  The first stations should start appearing 
in a couple of months.

Can you explain what this is and it's benefits?  I tried googling it but 
didn't find anything useful.
