Playlists should be for saving songs, radio should be for
Spotify's radio algorithm traps you in a narrow musical space where they torture you with the same 50 tracks over and over again. Their curated playlists are just tired old songs reimagined in a different order, and finding a playlist-creator with good taste is a entire journey in itself. Radionewify provides an alternative.
"Never listened to before" means "never any song that is...":
The recommendations are also not based on your previous listening
patterns, and their "max popularity index" is 60.
The reason the app jumps through all of these convoluted hoops is that Spotify doesn't provide the user's entire listening history.
Note: Radionewify works for both free and premium Spotify accounts — but it won't automatically start playing the generated radio for free accounts. (Spotify's API restriction, not my fault!)
Contact: If you want to request a feature or think you've found a bug, feel free to contact me at [email protected].
I also save your Spotify account ID and access token, which are needed to add the songs you've played since you connected to the app to the database.
I don't collect name, email, nor will publicly release or sell the data in any way. The database is private and password-locked.
After you've logged in to Radionewify you can make it avoid all tracks you've scrobbled with Last.fm. Just:
the downloaded file to Radionewify
This method should work for the other streaming services on Tune My Music as well (it has them all), except for YouTube/YT Music. (It's because YT doesn't cleanly separate the track name from the artist name.) You could probably solve this by moving your playlists to Last.fm, and then following the above method.
