Last.fm Radio Protocol

During the weekend I decided to hack together my own last.fm radio player in Python. I had found the My Playlist station pretty useless after being treated to the same three songs over and over again, and set out to code a player that would autoskip any songs I’ve already listened to once during a “session”.

So I combed the web and the official developer forum for useful information and even ended up digging into the official desktop client source code to find the answers to my questions. All information needed to implement a client (bar already officially documented components) have now been compiled into one spec-like entry in my last.fm journal.
