Why the name TagStation?
It comes from “song tagging.” Emmis Interactive developed TagStation in 2008 for radio listeners using FM-enabled iPods, iPhones or cars with iTunes. People had to tag a song in order to buy it from the iTunes store. And since disappointment quickly sets in when you pay money for the wrong song, we created the TagStation interface. It ensured accurate artist and title on the radio display for listeners, and gave radio stations an easy-to-use, low-cost solution for accurately managing their song tags.
