Send the Current iTunes Net Radio Track to Evernote

October 13th, 2013  |  Published in applescript

I like to listen to ‘net radio stations like SomaFM and KCRW’s Eclectic 24. Sometimes I hear new stuff and don’t want to take the time to make a note of it. This little script captures current ‘net radio track info from iTunes and sticks it in an Evernote note with an embedded source URL of the current stream:

I used to have an rb-appscript that did this with Things. Here’s that in case you feel like fiddling with stuff living on borrowed time:

As with just about every little one-off script I write, I use FastScripts to hook it up to a keyboard shortcut. Pretty sure there are better (free) ways, but I’ve had a FastScripts license for years. I think you can get the same effect creating an inputless service with Automator that just runs the Applescript, then assigning a keyboard shortcut to it.
