+1. Depends on the frequencies you're broadcasting in, but if by "radio station" you mean the AM or FM radio bands you can't legally put out enough signal to go more than a few feet, and even that must be shut down if anyone complains that you're interfering with other broadcasts.

Depending on why you're doing this, you might want to investigate webcasting instead.

Don't forget that copyright applies -- if you're broadcasting commercial recordings, you owe the publisher license fees, and in many cases those aren't cheap. (Actually, the rules for those are clearer for radio than for webcasting.)

You picked well.
In the realm of difficulty, Music broadcasting is the most demanding the hardest,
Voice is a little easier and code is easiest.
Is there, a terrible government organization like our FCC down under ?
There are ways to do this depending on your tech abilities.
