Track Playing

Posted by Chris @ 1:33 PM

If you were wondering why it has been quiet on this blog for a while, the reason, as always, is that I've been working on another website!

This one is called http://www.trackplaying.com - it displays information about the track currently playing on the radio.

It takes data from BBC Music (beta), Last.fm and Amazon, and is hosted on Google App Engine. Mashup heaven!

It is based on my previous attempt http://cgriley.com/nowplaying/ that some of you may recall - http://cgriley.com/2007/10/now-playing.aspx

As usual the best way to figure out what it is all about is to have a look, hope you all find it useful / of interest. Let me know what you think of it in the comments....

Dawn: It would be more interesting if they did.

Me: !
