Spinitron integration with Airtime Pro!
Spinitron is a paid 3rd-party website that logs your playlists, tracks, and albums. Spinitron helps archive your station's content and provides a new way for listeners to discover your station’s content after your shows have aired, as well as a venue for listeners to interact with your DJs while they are airing their shows.
With Airtime Pro’s Spinitron integration, you can automatically send your track metadata directly to Spinitron. Spinitron does a great job of formatting and time-stamping your playlists so that reports can be easily generated for compliance reporting or popularity statistics. There is a 30-day free trial, but otherwise there is a monthly fee for the Spinitron service (roughly 50$ per month). You can read more about Spinitron here: https://spinitron.com/about/
Note that if you already configured your Airtime station to work with Spinitron v1, you will need to contact Eva on the Spinitron team in order to upgrade to using Spinitron v2 because you will need new login information and a new API key. (617 233 3115 or firstname.lastname@example.org )
Once you have signed up for a Spinitron account, your station will have its own page within the Spintron website. You can start automatically sending track metadata from Airtime Pro to Spinitron by following the directions below.
Once set up, listeners will be able to browse tracks by date, DJ or show on your station’s Spinitron page. If listeners are viewing your Spinitron station page, they can also chat with your DJs if they are logged in to their Spinitron account. If a listener chooses to buy a track aired on your station through the Spinitron website interface, your radio station can receive a portion of the proceeds.
