Four applications work together as the backbone of 88Nine's website
Online Publishing Platform
Web Revenue Platform
Radio Milwaukee wanted to expand the website advertising that existed on their previous website. There were only three options for ads and not a lot of opportunity for impressions. The redesign, however, required a significant overhaul in design. As both a musical and lifestyle trendsetter in Milwaukee, they were serious about the creative and user experience on the website. We created a multi-tier advertising product for them to take to local businesses.
A complex series of events were in mind when we built the playlist, take all the songs from the live radio stream, and save the dates and times. We also had to tag, alter, or delete specific content like local bands, interviews, and advertisements. Last, since we only get song and album data from the meta-data in the stream, we used Spotify API, and The third-party streaming service we used was Streamguys. Radio Milwaukee sends up song and metadata to the stream, Streamguys provides an endpoint for the website both the playlist application and the site to consume. While the website offers the playable stream to the users, the playlist application does a series of events before saving the song, date, and time to a separate database that lives in an AWS cloud.
Event Management Application
The event application is a custom modification on multiple existing Wordpress plugins. Our custom front-end does not allow for complex front-end plugins to display without a little bit of design and customization.
