BBC Music/MusicBrainz bookmarklet

July 30 2008

At BBC Audio and Music Interactive, I'm one of the software engineers working on the BBC Music Discovery team. This week we launched the BBC Music Beta, which focuses in particular on publishing information about the artists broadcast on the BBC. You can read more about the site on Tom Scott's blog and BBC Radio Labs.

Matthew Shorter describes at the bottom of his post how to use MusicBrainz to find a given artist. Here's a little something to make that a touch easier: a BBC Music/MusicBrainz bookmarklet!

Drag this BBC Music/MusicBrainz link to your bookmarks bar in your browser. Now, when you're on an artist page (e.g. Coldplay) click on the bookmarklet to switch between BBC Music and MusicBrainz artist page.
