AOL Radio Launches – Last.fm By Another Name

AOL (NYSE: TWX) has started replicating its recently launched Last.fm-powered AOL Radio in its European markets, starting with France, Germany and the UK. Despite living at radio.aol.co.uk, the site is so much powered by Last.fm, it’s basically a copy of the CBS-owned social music engine with a joint Last.fm-AOL logo on top, right down to the user database. This ties in with CBS (NYSE: CBS) Radio’s goal – repeated when it relaunched its online offerings last week – of being the “number one internet radio station” and is part of a joint CBS-AOL deal. The radio network, however, unveiled its own new Play.it player.
