Airtime Pro and Spinitron are now friends – new integration for Airtimers!
Spinitron is a 3rd party website that logs your playlists, tracks, and albums. Spinitron helps archive them and provides a new way for listeners to discover your station’s content. With Airtime Pro’s new Spinitron integration, you can send your track metadata directly to Spinitron. Spinitron does a great job of formatting and timestamping your playlists so that reports can be easily generated for compliance reporting or popularity statistics.
Listeners can browse the Spinitron website to find your albums you’ve aired, your playlists and your radio station’s schedule.

Once you’ve signed up for a Spinitron account, your station will have its own page within the Spintron site. You can start automatically sending track metadata to Spinitron by following the directions below. On your station’s Spinitron page, listeners will be able to browse tracks by date, DJ or show. If a listener chooses to buy a track aired on your station through the Spinitron website interface, your radio station will receive a portion of the proceeds.
