Find Out What Was Playing on the Radio

If you know what time you were listening to the radio, you can find out what song you were listening to using a web service.

“Record Radio Shows” [Hack #20] highlighted a subscription-based web application that provides a program guide for upcoming terrestrial (and Internet) radio. However, with a different web service you can answer the question “What was that song?” for a day after the program ran.

Yes, Inc. ( http://www.yes.com) licenses song-by-song playlist information and provides it for the U.S. radio market. Using the drop-downs on the Yes.com main page, you can select a city, a local station, and then any airtime in the last 24 hours. The site then displays the five songs or programs that played nearest that time, giving you the option to purchase the tracks from either Amazon.com or eBay (Figure 2-15).
