Genre A Day

Genre-A-Day is a web app that presents a new music genre every day. For each genre it presents:

  • a brief description of the genre
  • a list of similar genres
  • the set of top artists for that genre (which are linked to the echotron)
  • A set of playlists:
    • intro - canonical songs meant to introduce the genre
    • current - most popular being played today
    • emerging - unfamiliar to most listeners

The app is hosted at Genre A Day

Included in the web app is a python script: tweeter.py. This script runs as a daily cronjob. It collects Genre-A-Day info about the current day's genre and tweets it on th GenreADay twitter account.
