Bringing Radio to Spotify
When new songs are added to our synthwave radio database we use Spotify's API to map to their corresponding Spotify Track IDs.
When songs are played by our synthwave radio, that ID is sent via our now-playing feed to a custom app that manages our Spotify playlists.
While the new track is added, the 50th placed track is removed, maintaining a dynamic playlist of 50 songs in length, usually about 4 hours in duration.
Artists looking to submit music to our radios and playlists can do so at submit.nightride.fm
