shoutcast-search 0.4.1
shoutcast-search searches for radio stations based on
criteria given on the command line. The application can for example
be used to automatically start a random radio station at startup or
as an improved and handy search tool for radio stations.
See for a complete description.
The following starts my day: launch vlc with a random station playing
Chill with reasonable technical (128+ kbps) and musical (some
listeners) quality.
$ shoutcast-search -n 1 -g chill -l ">50" -b ">127" -r | xargs vlc
