KCRW Gets A Spiffy New Spotify App
KCRW has launched a new Spotify App called "Music Mine" that brings the music you hear on the radio onto regularly-updated Spotify playlists.
The benefit of listening through a Spotify app over, say, the radio or streaming through KCRW's website is that if you like a song, it's easy to click through and listen to more songs from that album or artist. (That is, assuming, that they're part of the Spotify catalogue.) The app is updated regularly to show up to 100 tracks at a time.
The radio station says that they're the first in the U.S. to bring what they play on the air straight to a Spotify app. KCRW's app is based on the iPad app of the same name that launched this fall.
