NPR Details Its Online Music Service; Aggregating All Public Radio Efforts

NPR has been working on its online music service for a while in bits and pieces, and has added a lot to its main site, streaming as well as podcasts. We also mentioned about NPR’s plans for a destination music site last month. Now some more formal details: it will launch in first half of 2007, and will “create a unified place to showcase all genres on present and future media platforms.”
The new effort will be a supersite pooling the public radio system’s collective resources…it will have all music forms – including classical, jazz, folk, opera, AAA, electronica and alternative – from its 815 public radio stations around the country and their partner websites.
