Radio Search Engine

http://radiosearchengine.com/

Radio Search Engine is a new website that is a radio search engine for songs, artists, shows, and stations all over the world. From the site, “Search for your favorite artist and listen to their music. If it’s not playing right now, you’ll find stations that will likely play it which will lead to other music and stations you’re sure to enjoy.”

The website home page starts by listing the FM and AM radio stations in your area. Each station lists what it is playing or if it is on a station break. The site also has a google-like search box at the top of the page. Put in the song, artist, show, or station you are looking for. A search for “Michael Jackson”, brought up multiple stations playing his songs around the nation. Click on the song you want to hear and it will bring up other songs you may like to listen to as well. Multiple talk shows and even old radio shows like “American Top 40” can be found as well.
