New Feature: Bassplaying.com Radio

wheat's picture

Amazon.com has a new feature that allows you to create MP3 players for your site. So I threw one together from the bassists we've interviewed as well as a few others I thought you might like. I'm thinking of making a customized one to go along with each existing (and any future) interviews, featuring just the music of that bassist.

Feedback is welcome, as are suggestions for other artists whom we might feature. I haven't figured out how to randomly order the tracks in the playlist (they're currently in the order I selected them), though I can change the order manually. So maybe I'll just rotate the list once a month, so everyone gets to be at the top of the queue.

All song purchases benefit the site!

Happy holidays,

Wheat

Cool. Maybe we could do a featured bassist (living or dead) per month (or per week, if I'm feeling up to it). Any nominations? Maybe this could be a BP new year's resolution. I nominate Jaco for January 2010.

Well, copyright keeps us

Well, copyright keeps us from being able to post mp3s ('cept the ones you make yourself, of your own songs, of course). So technically, it can be done. But, legally, it would lead to trouble.

Feel free to link to/embed YouTube stuff. If there's copy-protected stuff on YouTube's site, that's Google's problem, not mine.

The Amazon widget lets me add anything that's available via Amazon MP3. So if you see anything on there that you want included, just let me know and I'll add it.

Or, you know, you could sign up for the Amazon Affiliate program and create your own MP3 Clips Widget and post it in a thread. :) Hmm, let's test that:
