There are several good methods specially for Streptomyces.
See Actinomyces home page or Hopwood manual 1995.

If you are looking for PCR amplification you can just use 
a colony as an initial source. Do not use too much.
take a coloney resaspend it in .5ml h2o boil and take 5microl
for the reaction. It works like majic!!!
