Update: Last.fm have since discontinued their radio service, so Spiked-Candy Radio is no longer available.
If you already have the player, just
click the radio icon in menu at right --> and it will start up for you.
If you're new to Last.fm, go
here to download the Last.fm player. You'll see two different downloads on that page. The one you want in order to make this work is on the right-hand side (Last.fm Radio Player). Have a look around while you're there and see how it all works - it's a great site.
I'm still adding stuff, and any suggestions are welcome - but may be ignored ;). Just remember I can only add streamable songs from the site. I've just worked out that if I tag an album, it will play you a different song from that album each session... so if you keep getting the same song, remind me to add more stuff from that artist.
- use the 'skip' button on the player if you don't want to hear the song right now
- use the 'ban' button if you never want to hear the song again
- click on 'options' (the little wrench icon) and check 'discovery mode' if you want it to play you stuff you've never listened to before
It's a bit of an eclectic mix of French pop, yé-yé, 80s, electro, 60s bands, indie, exotica and whatever else I felt like putting in there. You may get a strange mix at times - it can be a bit of a shock when it goes from a lovely Françoise Hardy or Karen Dalton tune to T.a.t.U... but I hope you will enjoy it!
Listen out for a few rare tunes on there, like the Italian versions of some Marie Laforêt songs and more.
