As expected, Last.fm is shutting down its radio service

Last.fm, the CBS-owned (S CBS) digital music outlet, will close down its streaming radio product by the end of April (hat tip to Engadget). Last.fm announced in its forums Tuesday that it wants to concentrate on “scrobbling”, meaning music recognition and recommendation, going forward, and that it will rely on YouTube (S GOOG) and Spotify for its music player. The move was widely expected after Last.fm rolled out a YouTube-based radio player in January.

    If this way they can happily return to the awesome Audioscrobbler days – that’s so fine with me. And with plethora of last.fm users, no doubt.
