I just started our own group on Last.FM. Join it! Scrobble! The more people that join and start scrobbling the better. It'll gather all our music tastes together and DCR will have its own Radio Station programmed around what the people in the group listen to, :) Then it'll build charts and such based off our playlists also.

Check it

Digital Radio Central ? Group at Last.fm

If you need to download the Last.FM software (good stuff)

That was nice of you to create a group. I did not realize folks still use Last.FM. I think some other providers out perform LastFM. From what I can tell this board is mostly a Slacker, Pandora group. I like your initiative, but sorry I don't use LastFM.

What other service gives you what Last.fm does for free? Pandora is nice and all but it is kind of limited

Last.fm just doesn't seem that customizable. Maybe I haven't messed around with it enough, but I even tried paying $2.50 and still I can only play by genre or by mixing things all together. I'd rather have individual stations like I do on Pandora or will on Slacker if I buy into that.

Careful.......the OP might start calling you names to. For not liking his free music provider that he uses.
Okay back out of here now, you aren't helping by keeping the crap stirred up. You said your piece now move along!

I've not used LastFM myself, but I did notice it was available via an application on my iPod Touch. Just never really got around to messing with it yet.

This forum is for all forms of digital services, so I appreciate the OP bringing this up and those that are interest by all means check it out and/or make your comments. If that service isn't for you, then say your piece and move on.

Thanks,

The thing I like about Last.FM is the app will "scrobble" (send to your profile on last.fm as what you last played in your recently played list), after X amount of songs you scrobble it will start grouping you w/ other users w/ similar musical interests and rate your music compatibility.(neighbors) Start making charts based off the artists you played.

You can make your own playlists/radio stations also. People can listen to "your" radio station via the Last.FM app(or in browser but the app is preferred so it scrobbles everything). Or you can listen to others playlists or music library. Whether you are listening to songs via iphone, ipod, winamp, someones playlist, someones library, a groups radio station, it's constantly scrobbling what you listen to and expands your library of tracks.

Think of it as a social networking site based around music w/ a pandora(esk) interface and then some. It's free and works extremely well.

My profile for an example

Here I thought I was being nice by responding to his thread. As no one else was at the time. Then he started name calling so I'd thought I would play along. I even requested him as a friend afterwords. You are right though. All forms of music providers are welcome here with all forms of opinions.

Thanks for being gracious! But honestly I don't think the name calling was meant seriously, I think he was just joking, but maybe I am not as sensitive as I use to be.

Now we can let this thread sink or swim on its own.
