Monday, June 18, 2012 - 11:15am

The acclaimed L.A.-area noncommercial KCRW (often lauded for its ahead-of-the-curve embrace of digital technology) has ported its Music Mine iPad app to Spotify's app platform.

We reported in December (here) that on-demand music subscription service Spotify now allows partners to build applications that use Spotify's music resources through the partner's (e.g. Pitchfork, Rolling Stone magazine, Billboard) interface. In September, RAIN reported (here) the station released its free Music Mine app for the iPad, "to give listeners a way to sample and discover new music handpicked by its staff."

Evolver.fm now reports the launch of the KCRW Music Mine on Spotify. "KCRW Music Mine is as simple as they come, but it’s effective, if you like KCRW’s taste in music, and the included artists change daily to correspond with KCRW’s on-air playlists, which keeps the whole thing current," notes Eliot Van Buskirk.
