MAP created a playlist for each subway station in Toronto by asking subway riders at each stop what they had playing on their headphones. Scroll over the stations to see the playlists and click the station dots to sample or download the playlists at itunes. You can also add a tune here, or find out more about the project here. The map below is the first pass of the subway. Riders are sending in their songs at a prodigious rate, though. You can see the first updated list by clicking here. It’s from Finch Station.
Who are the first commuters to update their station playlist in The Stationary Groove Subway Playlist Project?
The project is a week old, and right from the get-go I was wondering which location would use the “add my song” function to send in enough tunes for an updated playlist.
For a while I thought it was going to be Ossinton. Then Sheppard-Yonge took the lead and we got a few tweets and submissions for Scarborough Town Centre. But when I printed out the lists this morning, the first station to have an update is… drumroll please… Finch Station, you have officially turned it up to eleven!
