In this article I will discuss Last.fm, a scrobbling service, and present my “tools of the trade” for utilizing it for scrobbling and broadcasting what I’m playing.
Last.fm is a service that does something called scrobbling to the music you play. Scrobbling is just big fancy talk for storing the information about the music you play in a personalized database. From here you can keep track of your favorite artists, discover new artists with their radio service, broadcast what you’re playing, and tons more. If you want to experience even more their subscription service is surprisingly cheap.
