This Google Gadget takes your favourite bands from the RSS feed off last.fm and then searches the BBC for both news about them and TV and Radio appearances they are making.
It is set by default to Radio 1's last.fm account, but you can change this to any account you want by pressing the edit button.

I made it so that I know where and when I can see my favourite bands on TV/Radio since I always seem to miss it somehow (plus the chance to win a 'well known music player':) ) If I had unlimited time/money I would like to figure out a way to distinguish between different things on BBC News/listings searchs (e.g. Keane the band, Roy Keane, Robbie Keane all turn up if you like Keane) and a way to make the listings look like links to call up the synopsis (they do work but they just don't look like links).
