In the type of deal that would have been inconceivable just a few years ago, AI-powered radio services developer Super Hi-Fi and digital music content supplier I Like Music have signed a deal for ILM to supply uncompressed digital music content to users of Super Hi-Fi’s Program Director platform.
The multimillion-track ILM library offers “all the U.S. and U.K. chart singles and albums since those charts began in the 1950s, with unlimited access to millions more recordings from every music genre,” according to the announcement.
I Like Music CEO Rachel Jones said, “[W]e are very excited by [Super Hi-Fi’s] innovative and functionally rich AI-powered radio solutions. … By integrating I Like Music’s digital music library into Super Hi-Fi’s Program Director, our partnership is creating a unique, market-leading solution which can be adapted to suit any need, whether that’s on a smaller local or global enterprise scale. This integration will save radio stations time and money and frees them up to keep focusing on great radio programs.”
Super Hi-Fi Chief Commercial Officer Ryan Taylor explained, “Radio companies often struggle to normalize and manage their music catalogs across stations… With a deep integration into Program Director, I Like Music becomes an incredible solution for a simple and centralized way for stations to keep the latest releases at their fingertips for programming.”
