Ad-supported music site proof of concept

by Josh Kimball

Build your own DIY, ad-supported music site by pulling pop tunes set to commercials off YouTube.

If listeners are already giving some of their at attention to ads, why not have the pitch playing in the background for the entirety of the song? (Seems sorta like what RCRD LBL is doing, sans the YouTube bit and videos, of course.)

The very start of this fake, legal, ad-supported music site:
Cat Power
Iron & Wine
Of Montreal
Mates of State

Like Hype Machine, but way more legal and limited! (I spared you the web real estate of embedding all those vids, but the one-click access would be better.) Also: ran across AdTunes in the course of this; great site for music in commercials.
