Internet Radio for Your Eyes

Posted By on Fri, Nov 3, 2006 at 12:41 PM

Most people love to hear music, but as a live music lover, the visual experience is just as important to me. Now, SnappRadio has created a feast for the eyes for the online Internet music experience.

Designed to work with the Internet eclectic rock radio station Radio Paradise (the best radio station ever), and, SnappRadio is a mashup of the two online music sites and the popular photo-sharing site, Flickr.

What's a mashup? Only the unholiest (and coolest) alliances of content from various Web sites by random users who know enough code to scramble stuff together to (usually) create something entirely new and cool.

In this case, SnappRadio creates a photo slideshow that pulls images from Flickr related to the song that is currently playing. The code looks at tags users put on photos and matches them with the song and artist. So you get a combination of concert fan photos, as well as random images that happen to have a similar theme to the song or artist.

They're still working out the kinks, but right now it's a great way to countdown to a weekend of live music.
