Southern California NPR flagship and streaming radio leader KCRW has released a free app for the Apple iPad, called "Music Mine," to give listeners a way to sample and discover new music handpicked by its staff. The app was developed by Public Radio Exchange (PRX), designed by Roundarch using The Echo Nest’s music intelligence technology.
"This special format allows users who don’t have a lot of time to put together their own listening experience without being overwhelmed by options," a KCRW press release explains. "Listeners who want to delve into the world of each artist can find video, photos, blog posts and more, through a fun interactive interface designed specifically for the iPad. Fans who want a lean-back experience can simply tap KCRW's 24-hour, all-music stream Eclectic24."
