Can you share which API you used?

For testing I used Radio Swiss Groove (love the music they're playing there!), but didn't incorporate it in the code used, nor given out a working example in something like a Codepen. I did this to not run into problems of whatever sort (either by generating traffic of an unknown source, driving away listeners to other domains, etc.)

You can really just try to find a radio station that has no check on their endpoint of the currently playing song. Using your browser's dev tools helps a lot with that.

Does that answer your question?
