Hip-Hop stations partner with Apple

Power 106 (KPWR-FM, Los Angeles) and Hot 97 (WQHT-FM, New York) have become the first radio stations in the U.S. to integrate the iTunes Music Store into their websites. “Now, when listeners hear new music on our stations, a countdown, or mix they won’t have to work hard to find it, they just visit our station websites,” said Hot 97 Program Director John Dimick. The stations’ sites feature a custom section that uses Macromedia Flash to let visitors browse playlists and artists, but purchases are still completed through the iTunes application.

Im not so sure that they’re the first ones. Here in San Diego, JackFM used to do it for a while until they decided to use a different online music store.

SOme stations have LINKED to iTunes. But these guys are the first to integrate everything they play. This thing is really cool. I just browsed their entire music library. I’ve never seen anything like this before. I got to beleive this is going to catch on with other stations.
