TubeRadio – Spotify gets a feisty scruffy hustler as a neighbour


TubeRadio is a new arrival on the ‘all you can stream’ music scene, and while it’s nowhere near as polished as our current Swedish favourite Spotify, it’s actually not a bad effort at all. If Spotify is a suave rich uncle, TubeRadio is his slightly bratty nephew from the south side of the tracks, a bit gap-toothed and indolent but with good intentions.

Sure it’s yet another YouTube audio scraping site, but at least they’ve gone and added some real extra value. For one thing the Discography section is a great addition. Like Spotify, this area gives you a fast overview of an artist’s career output, with an option to add to playlist. It’s not as seamless as the double click to play of Spotify, but you get a similar effect, the ability to play through your favourite tunes and albums in one hit.

I also like the tabs which deliver track lyrics, bio and similar artists in an easy access format. It’s a nice touch and useful. All in all, a pretty good effort all round, and since it’s free, a very credible alternative to the master. Of course you’re limited to the YouTube content, but that should be enough for most people. I like it. Take a look and see what you think. Nice one Rogerio. is a web application that looks and feels like a music player where users can quickly find, listen to, and build playlists of their favorite artists’ music, powered by the world’s largest online music library. TubeRadio makes it easy to find songs, official music videos, live performances, bootlegs, rare recordings, in other words any of the millions of videos available on YouTube, all for free and with nothing to install.

 TubeRadio comes with several built-in tools that help the user automatically find music. By entering an artist’s name into the Discography Search, users are presented with the complete list of releases by that artist. Users can choose from the list and with a single click a video is automatically found for each track on every selected album. The end result is not only a video playlist, but a complete catalog of the song, artist, and album name for each video, all within a few seconds.
