BBC Radio 1 Musicubes
BBC Radio 1 is tapping into the online music culture that has led to the success of bands such as Arctic Monkeys with the launch of an interactive service allowing listeners to access the latest edition of their favourite shows.
The online service, which is called Musicubes, is accessible at www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/musicubes. Users can create a Musicube by entering the genre of music they prefer, such as hip hop, chart or indie.
The service will then offer online access to the latest editions of Radio 1 shows that feature the specified sort of content. They can also be shared with others via sites such as MySpace.com.
I've created my own Musicube. It's a cool (if fairly useless) concept, but my problem with it is that you have to be able to label your favourite music, which may be easy for DJs but not so easy for those of us who don't know our Grime from our Dirty House. This would be one for Pazen, I think.
Anyway, my cube is below...
