NEW FEATURE: Artist Radio
« on: October 25, 2008, 06:10:06 pm »

PMC has a new feature called Artist Radio.  It's a link underneath the artist's picture on the Artist Page.

It builds and plays a shuffled playlist of 100 songs from a mix of the artist and the artists on the Similar Page for the artist.

It appears to play the same 1st track eg "Bill Morrissey" artist radio every time (well 3 out of 3 times) gives "Barstow" as 1st track.  Very, very slow (4-5 mins) to build 100 tracks.  Cancel has no impact on building a "Rolling Stones" radio, it jumps through 1st track while still building.  It could be my poor internet connection/computer.  Is it possible to quickly play 1st track while building other tracks in the background.

It should take about 20 seconds. 

PMC always plays a track from the current artist while it looks up the rest.  This allows playback to start immediately, but we should make it a random track.

Please try again with the latest build and let us know the results. We fixed the "same first track every time" problem and made a couple of speed improvements.
