Matt’s idea for finding new music: Matt McAlister suggests a way he’d like for “letting obsessed music lovers create recommendations” for him: “Show me the Top 5 music freaks in my Top 5 favorite genres. Then give me the Top 5 most-listened to tracks amongst their followers. Throw in X random tracks per 100. Flag the ones my friends like for context. Readjust monthly. Now that would be a kick ass music station to listen to.”
Flashback: If you scroll down through this post I made before Apple added podcasts to iTunes, you can read how I suggested that certain podcasters could become purchasing agents for people like me who would trust them to discover the music I’d like, but don’t have time to find.
