Create a spotify playlist from your favorite radio station

It’s can be hard to find a decent spotify playlist. I thought it must be possible to create a playlist from all of the yesterday tracks of my favourite dutch radio station 3FM. I will describe the steps you must take to create the playlist.

The software you need is notepad++. The editing in this article can be done with other editors also but notpad++ has a macro recorder to repeat some actions really quickly.

First you need to find a website which have a full playlist from the radio station. I found one here http://nummerweten.nl/playlist/radio_3_fm_playlist

Then you need to copy the list to you clipboard.

copy-playlist

Past the copied date in to notepad++

past-notepad

Start the macro recorder an cut of all the garbage of the first line and hop to the second line. TIP: Use CRTL+SHIFT for the selections

start record

clean first line

stop recoriding

Replay the macro

notepad replay macro

run macro multiple tmes

Now you have a clean list
