Simon Fraser University: Musical memories refreshed: Olo Radio gives Last FM users a new way to interact with their music-streaming history. “Imagine accessing an archive of all the songs you’ve ever listened to—organized by the time of day, day of the year, or time of your life that you listened to them. With Olo Radio, a device designed by School of Interactive Arts and Technology professor William Odom and collaborator Tijs Duel, you can do just that.
