Radio.SCRadio.SC is a web app that builds radio streams out of the music tastes of any SoundCloud user. (SoundCloud is a website designed to help musicians upload and share music.) As Radio.SC promises it on its website: "Every SoundCloud user is a radio station."

The streams are built using "the information that SoundCloud has about who follows whom and who favorites which tracks, to intelligently select the music it plays," Radio.SC developer Tom Price told Evolver.fm.

"This won’t become the only way you ever listen to music (what will, these days?)," writes Eliot Van Buskirk, "but if you’re a SoundCloud person or know lots of SoundCloud people, it’s a powerful way to flip a channel on in seconds and listen to someone’s taste."
