BBC announces Playlister music discovery service (video)

Remember when the rumors were that the BBC was launching a streaming service providing access to the highly-desirable archive recordings trapped in its archives? No such luck, friends. Playlister may now be real, but it's also just a way to find tracks you've already heard broadcast. It works by letting you collate playlists of recently-aired tunes, before pushing them to the audio / video service of your choice. For instance, you could pull a track from Radio 1, 2, 3 and 6 each before pushing them out to YouTube, Spotify or Deezer for listening. The service will also offer curation from notable DJs like Jo Wiley and Zane Lowe, and while the first edition will be browser-based, Auntie promises that more services and platforms will be added along the way.
