Skip to comments.Introducing The World's First Radio Search Engine [maybe not the FIRST but definitely cool]
Posted on 11/17/2013 3:43:24 AM PST by markomalley
I just launched a beta version of RadioSearchEngine.com - the world's first radio search engine. There are other directories of A-Z lists of radio stations, but this is the first search engine where any song or artist can be located on stations playing from anywhere in the world. A universal web player for the first time connects to and plays nearly every station offering immediate audio satisfaction and unprecedented user control.
radiosearchengine.com - Play local stations, locate trending songs and popular shows
radiosearchengine.com/search/metallica - Get a list every Metallica song playing on radio
radiosearchengine.com/search/katy-perry-roar - List all stations playing Katy Perry's Roar
radiosearchengine.com/search/beatles - Listen to any Beatles song being broadcast
radiosearchengine.com/search/chill - Find a list of songs playing on top chill stations
radiosearchengine.com/search/country - Find a list of songs playing on top country stations
Every popular radio hit is just a click away. Charts track the most played songs broadcast on radio in popular genres, all of which are playable. A growing number of internet-only stations makes every style of music from the billboard hits to the most eclectic easily locatable and playable. Tens of thousands of stations are scanned every 3-5 seconds to get the currently playing song. This index is used to construct a real-time library of ever changing music on the radio, all of which searchable. Search for songs, artists, station names, genres, talk shows or podcasts. It's the biggest single audio library of popular content.
Listeners are presented with an array of listening options that invite them to move smoothly between a no effort radio experience or a near-demand experience. When a song is played, additional tunes playing on radio by that artist are listed and playable. A recommendation engine identifies 20 similar songs likely of interest. A chart ranks other popular songs in that genre. A traditional skip button advances to a new related song. Together these options allow listeners to fine tune their audio experience from hands-off radio to playing just old favorites or new hits. Unlike other radio services, there's no limit on fast-forwarding, plus users can search for and play specific songs.
A beta version of RadioSearchEngine is available immediately to all users. An overview video is available here. More information about the service can be found at RadioSearchEngine.com.
I've been working on this new service for nearly a year and excited to unveil it to the world and hope you'll check it out!
Bump for later
Not listing all the stations in Pittsburgh. Renda stations - WSHH & WJAS -they may not be netcasting. Also MIA is 92.9 - used to be WLTJ but not sure of the calls now. KQV 1410 AM all news as well and there may be others.
Just letting ya know. Very cool project. Looking forward to checking it out more when I get the chance.
Wow....thanks....it’s a great idea...
I will check this out. Really cool is that it is all the stations in the world. It would go well with TuneIn radio probably
Folks who listen to classic country will find out there are classic country stations in Norway (which has a following for US country music) and Iceland
From car commercials, where someone can request artist/group, I assume that there are proprietary versions. Is there a potential for similar application for when on the road, but not wanting such proprietary systems?
Very cool. I searched for a fairly old band, and found them being played in Singapore.
Didn’t work well for me. Borderline unusable.
Worked fine here.
Might depend on operating system, and what you’re listening to.
(maybe music, has a deeper demand than voice)
I was listening to talk radio just now, it didn’t have even one issue in about 2 1/2 hours of listening.
W7 and Chrome
Are you listening to a music station?
Maybe that is the difference.
Holy carp! This is FANTASTIC! I just used it (*BTW*...using W7 and Chrome)...found out there are a LOT of radio stations across America playing Christmas music.
When I first pulled it up, I saw stations in my local area....and I found stations I didn’t know existed.
Is it alright to share this?
[maybe not the FIRST but definitely cool]
True before putters White’s radio log had a book with all FCC call signs.
Yes I R a old geezer.
Or, how about the ‘World Radio-TV Handbook’?
This is great, thanks. I’ve been using PublicRadioFan.com but most stations will no longer play from this site.
They work too.
